Lawn Care

Only organic pesticides can be used on lawns

Only products with these labels are allowed on private lawns, playgrounds, mulched recreation areas, and the grounds of childcare facilities.

Taking Care of Your Lawn

We each have our own lawn care style --- some are protective (mow, mow, mow!), while others take a more laid back approach. No matter your style, there are ways to reduce the environmental impact of your lawn care practices.

This new website provides the tools for how to make the transition to organic lawn care smooth for all lawn care styles and people. If you have questions or comments about lawn care or this site, please do not hesitate to email the lawn care program at
