You probably aren’t considering the environmental impact of your outdoor structures. For instance its while enjoying a backyard barbeque, pool party, or just sitting and relaxing on the deck.

Managing your backyard

On average, homeowners use ten times more chemical fertilizers and pesticides per acre. It is more than what farmers use on farmland. If improperly applied, these chemicals can find their way into drinking water wells. This therefore can pollute nearby lakes and streams. Children are particularly vulnerable to pesticides. Therefore these are stored or used without proper safety precautions.

Most homeowners understand that plants and sprinkler systems directly impact the environment. However they have to overlook other elements. Likewise the materials used to construct decks, patios, pools and fencing .Similarly the chemicals that are commonly used in fertilizers, pesticides and exterior cleaners. The good news is that there are safer eco-friendly alternatives which can be just as effective.
