There are many myths about taking care of your grass and garden out there that people think are true. If you follow them, your yard may not look so good though. The problem is, as seen in this article written by Stephanie Booth on Realtor.com ,your grass could be destroyed, if you don’t have all the critical facts.
The article shows how a small bit of truth can lead to disaster, if you don’t know how the home remedy can go so very wrong. For example, pouring dish detergent on plants kills insects. While on its face, this may be true, “soaps have to dissolve fats, oils, and waxes on your dishes, they’ll also remove the oils and waxes that protect your plants,” … “Without a protective coating, your plants are more at risk of disease and pest problems.” The key is to know the real benefits of organic lawn care and which strategies will actually work well.
