Sustainable lawn care! How you can help.

Posted on June 9th, 2009 by Water Nymph in Phil Says

paulslawnFriend of Rainwater, Paul Lauenstein, has come up with a very interesting approach to sustainable lawn care.  I know this fellow and he is committed on a local level to sustainable practices.  I think his idea is worthy of support of the sustainable community—so please take a look at his brief write up and give support as you see fit with a vote on the Conservation Law Foundation contest.  On their site you will see the other 9 finalists—all very noble and practical entries.  But given the stress on fresh water supplies in this as well as many other areas due (in large part) to irresponsible landscape irrigation, this one has a lot of merit.

Feel free to forward this post to your sustainable-minded friends and colleagues.

Coincidently, this week’s Boston Sunday Globe highlighted just this issue.  You can read the article here: http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2009/06/07/in_mass_concerns_rising_on_water_overuse?s_campaign=8315

In the meantime, go vote for Paul’s idea here!

6/29/09 Update: Paul won! Thank you to all of you out there who went and voted for him. Good job, Paul!
