"pesticide-free Ways To Keep Lawn, Garden Healthy"

Friday, May 21, 2004

Environment Canada says there are natural alternatives to pesticides: * Overseed every year to create a dense lawn that will crowd out weeds. * Fertilize naturally with manure and compost. * Mow less often. Set the mower blade higher and keep grass 6 cm long to encourage longer roots and crowd out weeds. * Water less often, but longer, to build deep roots. * Rake out thatch to discourage pests. Dig out weeds by hand. If that fails, Canada's first non-chemical weed control was registered last month with Health Canada and is now available in retail stores. Turf Maize is a plant-based product that works by inhibiting the seed germination of weeds such as dandelions and crabgrass. For more information, go to http://www.turfmaize.ca or call 905-571-5047.
