Green Lawn Care
You can have a lawn that’s green in more ways than one!
Thinking about how to get your lawn ready for Spring? It’s important to know what kind of grass you have and how to care for it. Water, fertilizer, and light requirements vary by turf type, and unnecessary fertilizing is actually bad for your grass, not to mention expensive! Check out our Yard Care page to learn more.

Labelled storm drains remind us that they are connected to our streams and creeks
An estimated two-thirds of North Carolina’s water pollution is caused by polluted runoff, also called stormwater pollution. This runoff comes from our streets, lawns, and rooftops. It carries dirt, oil, fertilizer, pet waste, and many other pollutants directly to our streams, lakes, and rivers.
Our waterways provide drinking water, recreation, and fish and wildlife habitat. These uses are threatened by the harmful effects of stormwater pollution.
