Organic Lawn Care: Midwest Grows Green

You, too, can have a beautiful organic lawn with handy tips from Midwest Grows Green:


#TakeAction in your own lawn

Build a lawn ready to last the summer with tips from our Natural Lawn Calendar:

  • Fertilize the 1st-15th of the month 
  • Look for signs of weed, disease, or pest problems -- address underlying soil or turf health issues

Visit MPAC resources for more natural lawn tips.

#TakeAction in your community

In a unanimous vote this June, the Municipal Water Reclamation District (MWRD) of Greater Chicago passed a policy to reduce its herbicide use by 92 percent. MWRD Commissioner Frank Avila consulted with MPAC and MGG to eliminate synthetic herbicide use in turf landscapes, shrub beds, and paved areas. Read more about the collaboration here.
