Delaware Livable Lawns

The goal of the Delaware Livable Lawns initiative is simple - reduce fertilizer and pesticide runoff from lawns.

Certified Livable Lawns companies agree to participate in this program that goes above and beyond the Delaware Nutrient Management Law.

They are monitored for:

  • Applying fertilizer based on soil tests so only enough fertilizer to achieve a healthy lawn is applied.
  • Using best management practices to prevent fertilizers from leaching into groundwater, ponds, streams or lakes.
