GLRPPR Sector Resource: Lawn and Garden Care

Title:
Lawn and Garden Care

Abstract:
Pests come in a variety of forms: weeds, insects, animals, molds, and fungi to name a few. Pesticides provide relief from many pests, but they are not the only solution to every problem. The need to control outdoor pests varies. Having some weeds in your garden, or some grubs in your lawn, may be more tolerable; however, certain pests present serious threats in some years. Some pests can damage human and animal health, such as mosquitoes that carry diseases. This web site includes videos on environmentally responsible lawn care, chromated copper arsenate, and tips to prevent runoff of lawn care chemicals.
