P.S.
      A reminder that getting that green lawn with chemicals only washes off into our streams and creates an environmental problem.   This Spring let your grass green on its own.  Or better yet consider a more natural habitat than a green lawn.   


       Also consider how to eliminate much of the storm runoff with a rain garden.





P.S. 1
