Water DOES have more power than most people think. Water moves where it wants and a blades of grass can’t completely stop it from runoff. I currently live off a bankrupted golf course. To me, the nature setting is nicer now than what it must have looked like with golf carts. The heron, eagles, hawks and many other animals and insects appear to love their ‘new’ home. The bees and butterflies float beautifully across the ‘links’ now no longer present for human enjoyment. The USEPA makes sure that human life is protected to the best of its ability. I am grateful America is concerned with our environment. Imagine living where there is no USEPA. I dare not think of it. :-)

In lawns when fertilizer is properly applied by professionals it does not run off. Turfgrass is natures best water filter. Turfgrass needs fertiilizer to grow properly. It has been proven at Penn State and The Univeristy of Florida that turfgrass does not let fertilizer runoff. Turfgrass also acts as a natural air conditioner for the atmosphere. So preventing the use of fertilizer by professionals actually does more harm, than properly fertilized and healthy turgrass. Please quit trying to build false environmental cases to take away our liberty!
