I've used lawn grub killer for,past 3 years. Now have good healthy lawn. Without it my lawn was simply eaten to pieces. My garden is a haven for bees, butterflies,,birds, etc etc. My healthy lawn is better for the environment than sterile decking or concrete patios. How many of you spray for ants on that patio?
More damage is done by growers of roses who spray every fortnight using insecticides and fungicides. More damage is done by using slug pellets. More,damage,is done by air freshener or,hair sprays. More damage is done by the use,of,microwaves.....but I'm,not telling people not to,use them. More damage is done by using gas, oil etc to heat our homes. I'm,not telling anyone not to do this. More damage is done by one person car drivers........think of the pollution......how many of you actually offer regular transport to others to "save the planet".?
There is an awful lot of,hype,and propaganda and hysteria.....with very little proof. Look, let's all just grow single, environment friendly plants......forget those new doubles and sterile (but majestic ) summer long, non seeding introductions. Forget wanting to grow a,nice lush lawn because you are deemed (accused) to be destroying the planet.
those advocating landscape membranes .......to my mind these people are destroying the environment. They create sterile soils, deny birds accessing food, and look...and are....terrible.
I,have been growing organic food for years....been looking after my soil and my health for years. I don't condemn others for using chemical fertilisers....that's their choice.
Lets not force people to act as we think they should do just because some scientists declare their theories are facts.
We should all be allowed to enjoy our gardens as we see fit.
