This article details how the city of South Miami transitioned to using organic fertilization techniques for all of their public landscapes to reduce pollution in the local waterways. How could we get every city (and resident) to adapt such a stance?
Right now, just focusing on "one neighbor at a time". They have these new signs that represent your lawn is fertilizer free (or all natural, as some good compost can really serve as its own all natural fertilizer if done right). I have my yard looking very sharp with minimal negative (if any) environmental impact right now. perhaps indicating I also saved a fortune on fertilizer and didn't poison the bay, maybe itll catch on a bit.
