This is the first in a four-step lawn care regimen Espoma has developed as part of their Safe Paws: Healthy Lawns, Happy Pets program.  Some folks mistakenly believe that organic lawn care costs more.

Although the initial costs may be slightly more, according to a study by Environmental GrassRoots Education, once established, an organic lawn program can result in savings of more than 25% over a conventional program.
