We love this PDF presentation from the EPA reminding us all of the reasons we should treat our ground soil and ground water with loving care! We would like to add the importance of responsible pest control. Like the PDF states, if you find yourself with a pest issue, it is a sign that your lawn is not getting valuable resources it requires. Spraying harsh chemicals not only pollutes the soil, but erradicates every type of beneficial insect that helps maintain a healthy grass. Be sure to research exactly what pests you are working with, but also lean towards home remedies and organic products to not destroy your yard completely.
