Why YardScape?

Reason #2: People, Pets and Wildlife

Too often people think pesticides are "safe" because they can be bought at a local hardware store. This is absolutely not true! All pesticides have risks, even those approved for orgainc use. Pesticides are designed to be toxic--that often means they kill something. If used incorrectly, a pesticide could pose risks to people, pets and beneficial creatures and plants.

YARDSCAPING will help you grow lawns and landscapes that create better habitats and demand less pesticides, fertilizers and irrigation water.
