FERTILIZER: The State of Michigan has passed a law banning the use of harmful phosphorus lawn fertilizers in order to protect our water resources. Check the label before buying fertilizer. The bag will show a series of three numbers. Look for the ZERO in the middle to find a phosphorus-free fertilizer that won't pollute our water.
