Everyone's goal should be to obtain the best possible environmentally, beneficial home lawn and landscape. To do this it is necessary to understand the best mowing and watering practices plus how to use various turf and landscape products to attain a healthy lawn & landscape environment. Weed Man is a member of this EPA program because we are committed to the proper use of the quality products we use, services we perform and enhanced consumer education concerning their external home environment. You can show your environmental stewardship by following the suggested practices in our fact sheets under Turf Tips (mowing, watering, etc) and by letting us and the EPA know you understand your important role by participating in the Environmentally Friendly Lawn and Garden Practices survey.
