Help environment with smaller lawns

Eunice Kilmer, Johnstown


There’s too much mowing. Remember the old push mowers? Our lawns were smaller. We had lots of bees and butterflies. Why such big lawns? I don’t get it.

We put pesticides and herbicides and other chemicals on our lawns to kill everything but the grass. What are we doing?

Clover is beautiful, but it is mowed off. No, no, no, they aren’t weeds; they’re wild flowers. Stop, for our honey bees are having a hard time. Give a piece of your lawn to the “wild side” and see what you get. 

Watch the lightning bugs and get rid of Spectrum and have free TV.
