Now this is something! A new law bans the application or fertilizer between Nov.1 and April 1st! WOW! Have you seen anything like this in your area?

Do you think this is a good or a bad idea?

Pros aren't pleased (http://www.newsday.com/news/local/suffolk/ny-lireax195507021dec19,0,5431523.story) - The people charged with caring for Long Islanders' lawns yesterday greeted a new law that would ban winter fertilizing with something less than holiday cheer.

"They're really squeezing us from both ends," Peter Behensky, owner of Prestige Lawn Care in Huntington, said of a Suffolk County measure passed yesterday that would ban the application of fertilizer between Nov. 1 and April 1.
