A Move Towards Organic!
The library is engaging in a program of pesticide reduction in our lawn care. Together with our landscaping company TruGreen, we will be testing a hybrid approach. We will minimize our pesticide applications to two treatments annually and incorporate other methods, such as mowing higher, watering more frequently, and seeding aggressively in the fall. There currently is no effective organic treatment for crabgrass, weeds, or damaging insects so we will continue to monitor the progress and health of our beautiful grass.
