    this was in the paper today.
    The county's proposed law takes some cues from an ordinance passed by the city of Sanibel in March. Like the Sanibel ordinance, the county's proposed law prohibits the use of fertilizer on "impervious surfaces" such as driveways. common cents blow the drive when done!!!!!!

    Numbers 2 and 3 are easy and profitable. Buy your equipment and start marketing stone or mulch installations around bodies of water. Does that apply to residential and commercial? What would the golf courses do?

    Next time they have a meeting on this matter ask a simple question: What is the county doing with their sewage sludge now. Aren't they being a little hypocritical saying that you can't put your high price fertilizer in their community but they don't mind spreading their low price sewage on someone's else property.

    I'm surprised there's nothing requiring slow release ferts.

    That "no mow" zone is wack:hammerhead: way out there.

    No mow zone? So if someone wants to enjoy the water, they have to waddle through 6ft of overgrowth with ticks and snakes?
