Lawn Care Operators Work for Clean Water

Green and Clean pamphlet coverThe Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) works with lawn care companies to encourage watershed-friendly lawn maintenance in the Commonwealth. Lawn care companies voluntarily enter into a water quality agreement with the agency. They agree to train their employees to use lawn care products responsibly, follow appropriate lawn fertilization practices and provide environmentally sound advice to customers. In return, DCR maintains a list of watershed-friendly lawn care operators that is available to the public. This year, consider choosing a watershed-friendly lawn care company or, if you take care of your own lawn care, consult the DCR publication Green & Clean to try home lawn care - the watershed-friendly way.
