UWM Goes to Chemical Free Lawns


There is no simple switch out to go sustainable and reduce the need for pesticides and herbicides. The key to reducing weeds without herbicide is healthy soil. Healthy soil=healthy grass=less weeds.  In 2014, UWM's Physical Environment Committee approved the change over to natural lawn care and the elimination of chemical application on campus lawns.  Now, all 23 acres on the Kenwood campus are regularly aerated, overseed, and topped with compost.
