The Danger of Chemicals In Lawns

Lawn Care Myrtle BeachEach year numerous extra pounds of chemicals are splashed, sprayed or otherwise spread out on home lawns and commercial lawns all throughout the country. In today’s world where people do what it takes just to get the perfect selfie in a picture-perfect yard.

Many of us have let ourselves accept the fact that chemical plant foods are really safe or at least risk-free, yet that is absolutely far from reality. Whatever they may tell us or what we think we know, in ourselves, we know that chemicals in plants or in our food are generally unsafe. Why else would a chemical fertilizing business need to place those little signs that state “Keep off the grass” for X days after application? Why do they use boots, gloves, and masks, if it is safe?

The Truth About Lawn Care and Chemicals

Do you think that once they remove the signs, it becomes safe? Actually, it just becomes saf-ER and the question is how many direct exposures to a saf-ER yard will it require to amount to the poisonous outcomes of being revealed to a risky lawn that has those little signs in it?

How many times each week do your youngsters and family pets head out, run about and roll in the yard? Can you imagine them rubbing their bodies in the chemical induced yard? But then, you know you only used chemical-free fertilizers, or do you?

A research study done by the California Public Interest Research Group (CALPIRG) Charitable Trust and Washington’s Safe Food and Fertilizer examined 29 plant foods from 12 states for 22 poisonous metals. Their record “WASTE LANDS: THE HAZARD OF HAZARDOUS PLANT FOOD” records the outcomes of these plant food examples as well as shows that the issue of hazardous plant foods prevails.

Their screening revealed that the 29 plant foods checked included all 22 harmful heavy metals, most of which are understood health hazards or are thought about to cause cancer. Additionally, four of these plant foods were trademark name plant foods marketed to unknowing customers that typically use these items in higher quantities than advised by the manufacturer. There is at least one checked plant food that is a major brand used in most lawn care and landscape businesses.

Is this actually what we desire our youngsters and also our pet dogs using? Poisonous waste that is so negative the EPA limits manufacturing firms from disposing of it directly, but then put more people at risk when they market it to landscape and lawn care businesses at fertilizer fillers.
