Two weeks since SafeLawns announced the historic pesticide protection legislation passed at the Nation’s Capitol, numerous other municipalities have been calling us for information about how it happened. We won’t mention them here; at this point that would only tip the hand of the chemical pesticide lobby groups.

Your every step is important.

Beyond that, give us a call. We’re always willing to help. Feel free to give us a call or send an email to Paul@SafeLawns.org.
