City officials in Charlottetown, P.E.I. says some lawn care customers are getting bad advice from the professionals caring for their lawns. Claims are being made that chinch bug infestations have taken over some lawns, but city officials say customers shouldn't be so quick to believe the existence of the pests equates to an infestation.
Charlottetown, P.E.I. is reaching out to the public with pesticide-free and low-maintenance alternatives to maintaining lawns and gardens. A cosmetic pesticide bylaw was enacted by the city in January, and an educational outreach strategy is attempting to share with the public ways they can still achieve attractive green spaces.
The program and registration form for the National Symposium on Parks and Grounds are now available online. The event, to be held Sept. 13-16 in the capital region of Ottawa-Gatineau, is affiliated with the Communities in Bloom program.
