Water Quality: Are You Doing Your Part?
August 11, 2016
As the season of warmer weather gets into full swing, you may be tempted to take a dip in the lake or have a nice cool glass of water. But before you do so, ask yourself, are you doing your part to protect the quality of your water? Responsible lawn care is a major factor in keeping the water you use in and around your home safe.
Ways You Can Help
1. Rainwater That Falls On Lawns Runs Into Water Supply
During the spring and summer months, rainfall is inevitable. As careful as you may be with treatment of your lawn, it is unavoidable that runoff will occur. This runoff can go into storm drains and will carry with it potentially unsafe lawn products that will end up potentially mixing with the local water supply. Lake Norman Pest and Lawn only uses products on your lawn that are safe for you, your family, and even your pets!
2. Many People Over Treat Their Lawn
Our team of highly trained technicians will first analyze your lawn, mapping out distinct problem areas to put together a plan of treatment optimal for your personal situation. Store bought lawn care products can be potentially harmful to your lawn if not used correctly. These products can actually hinder soil absorption and increase runoff, thus compromising your water supply. Save yourself from the guessing game and entrust your lawn to the professionals.
3. Cleaning Up Is Just As Important As Treatment
After lawn treatment, LNPC always makes sure we clean up after ourselves! Grass clippings and other debris, if not disposed of correctly, can get into storm drains and into the water itself
4. Don't Forget About The Dock
If you live near the water, treatment of your dock is just as important as your lawn. As an extension of your lawn itself, your dock is susceptible to the same pests as your green areas. Using harmful chemicals to treat dock pests can compromise the surrounding water and marine life! LNPC's Dock Service only uses products that will not harm the lake or wildlife when treating your dock area. Doing your part is important and Lake Norman Pest Control and Lawn is here to help!
