Hi, just flipping through your latest issue and wanted to give you some feedback.
Normally I find the voice of the SW journal to be very progressive and environmentally conscious, but your leaf cleanup tips were pretty off putting for me. Advocating applying fertilizers and pesticides and using a polluting blower to clean up leaves is directly in opposition to some of the other articles you have in the same issue promoting sustainability, pollinator friendly practices and more ecologically and healthy ways to clean up leaves. Like good old fashioned raking.
Please interview someone more progressive next time instead of the parkway lawn service dude or write about ways to be sustainable and recycle nutrients in your yard by composting your leaves and using clippings for mulch.
Thanks for all you do to keep us all informed about our homes and neighborhood.
