The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. What if we told you that you can have a healthy garden without the excessive use of pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers?
When gardening, practicing the 4 S’s will help you achieve the garden of your dreams in no time.
The 4 S’s are:
- SELECT – When you want to get rid of pests and pump up the quality of your soil always SELECT the least toxic option. You will be surprised by the wonders of all-natural compost; organic food scraps and yard waste are a boon to plants and the planet.
- STRATEGICALLY – When applying chemical products to your lawn or garden, STRATEGICALLY do so on days when rain is not expected. This will prevent the chemical from ending up in our watershed, polluting our watershed.
- SPOT-APPLY – SPOT-APPLY pesticides or chemicals only to the area that needs treatment.
- SAFELY – Always make sure you SAFELY dispose of unwanted household hazardous waste at a collection center. To learn more about what items qualify as a household hazardous waste click here.
