I guess my point is that in the 30 odd years that I have been in this business I have established and kept nice lawns using organics, synthetics, combination of both, and nothing at all but mowing. My point is that IPM is the answer and that uses every tool that you have when it is needed whether it be organic, synthetic or physical and none when not. A good horticulturist cares about the environment or else they wouldn't do what they do. But chemicals are not necessarily bad and organics are not necessarily good. All are tools of the trade with risks and advantages and we must choose wisely when we use any of them.
I just wish people wouldn't be on one side of the fence or the other because there is room for both.
