Organic Landscaping

Because there is such an increasing need for information about organic landscaping and lawn care practices, the Organic Landscape Alliance (OLA) has a new website, providing the public with a credible source of information on organic lawn and landscaping practices. The non-profit trade organization’s website includes fact sheets on organic lawn care and landscaping...

Atlantic Canadian Organic Regional Network (ACORN) has developed a new on-line “gardener’s tool.” The Grower’s Database is a free to access and lists the top 100 pests and weeds. Within the database, are pictures of the various growth stages to help with identification, as well as information on the life and growth cycle, damage caused, prevention options and treatments – all without the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides. Just go to and select “Grower’s Database.”

There really is no excuse for ignorance when it comes to organic solutions for gardening and landscaping.

Happy Gardening!
