I took my lawn "off drugs" about nine years ago. I make sure the company I hire in the spring doesn't use any pesticides or harsh chemicals on my lawn. I have it aerated and sometimes use organic fertilizer. In early summer I simply dig up dandelions or even just take their tops off! This is minimal work and I've never had a problem. The best thing is that I KNOW my family and dog are not being exposed to poisons and that I'm not putting more of these into our river and groundwater!

I would definitely support a pesticide bylaw which would improve our neighborhood's health!
