NOT a Chemical Romance
Now that spring has sprung, we - along with many of our neighbors - are out toiling on our land, sprucing up the yards, trimming back the shrubs, killing off the weeds?.... Dana asks:
What do you ladies know about weed killers/fertilizers in particular? My lawn is a hideous melange of crabgrass, weeds, and a little actual grass. My husband would like to use Weed and Feed on it based on a recommendation from my entirely environmentally-inept-chemical-using-republican-stepmother. No seriously I love her but the woman actually doesn't know how to recycle. I taught her this weekend. She says that Weed and Feed is not long lasting and that the chemicals break down after a few weeks. I would really love to believe her. On the other hand I want my son to be able to play in the grass this summer with a clear conscience.
Does anyone know about chemicals like this? Or does anyone know of health/enviro friendly alternatives?
