Read the product label and follow the directions, using only as directed.
Avoid applying near driveways or gutters.
Never apply fertilizer or pesticide before a rain.
Store fertilizers, pesticides, and other toxic garden chemicals in a covered area and in sealed, waterproof containers. Take unwanted lawn or garden chemicals to a household hazardous waste collection facility. Call (800) CLEANUP for more information.
Use non-toxic products for your garden and lawn whenever possible.
Recycle leaves, grass clippings, and other yard waste, instead of blowing, sweeping, or hosing them into the street or gutter.
Try grasscycling, leaving grass clippings on your lawn instead of using a grass catcher. The clippings act as a natural fertilizer and because grass is mostly water, it also irrigates your lawn, conserving water.
