yeah we've banned pesticides on lawns. I can't keep up with the weeds. But I guess it's worth it. Pretty scary stuff.

My lawn looks like crap! It's kind of embarrassing me mowing weeds every week, but I did research and decided it was better for the pups. They are huge grass eaters....

No pesticides or fertilizer here either. Whatever grows gets mowed.

I don't use any pesticides or spray weed killer in the backyard but should I not fertilize the lawn?
