How to make a lawn eco-friendly
Posted by Green Fun Store on 4/13/2011 to Yard & Garden
Tiny uncut wildflowers, which would normally be destroyed by a low mower, provide pollen that these creatures depend on. By restricting that supply, homeowners are making things increasingly difficult for wildlife. Especially now that native pastures have been depleted by the development of property, it's essential to make people aware of changes that can be made to benefit the environment as a whole.
"We want to encourage greater bio-diversity among lawn owners," John Deere's David Hart told the Evening Telegraph. "Our changing weather patterns now urgently demand that we revise the way we mow."
Thanks to Classic John Deere mowers, which provide multi-optional height adjustments, lawn care is simpler to customize. In fact, the company - under the guidance of John Deere's National Gardens Park - is a strong contributor to the cause of eco-friendly lawn care.
