GREEN YOUR HOME AND GARDEN: FREE WHOLESOME FOLSOM 
PRODUCTS STILL AVAILABLE
 
The green in your landscape can be more than the lawn.  Join Folsom’s innovative Wholesome Folsom program to solve pest and weed problems through less-toxic means.  A greener home and landscape puts less pressure on local streams and reduces the amount of toxic waste requiring disposal.  Fall and winter seasons can have their own set of pest and weed problems.

Call us at 355-8350 or Email us and go to: Wholesome Folsom Web Information.



When you call for this FREE service  we can provide you with some sample products to make your greening easy.  We have free less toxic ant baits, herbicides, aphid soaps, crawling insect sprays and even some beneficial nematodes (to reduce grass grubs).  During the rainy season landscape chemicals are more likely to wash from your property.

Your home and landscapes are little ecosystems. The mix of plants, soil, nutrients and watering will support a balance of local weeds and insects.  Changes in these system elements or weather can throw the little ecosystem out of balance.  For example, too much water can weaken plants making them susceptible to disease and insect attacks.  Ornamental plants may not be adapted to our climate and therefore are susceptible to aphid attack early in the year before natural predators are active.
