Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:068 Tip: Don’t let your lawn produce pollen. By mowing it before it has a chance to form and release the allergy reaction causing particles you can keep the pollen levels lower in the local environment. There are also types of grass that produce little or no pollen.
