Organic lawn management

Organic lawn management is the practice of establishing and caring for a garden lawn without the use of chemical inputs such as pesticides or artificial fertilisers.

The garden lawn is a place where we can walk, play and relax, and is especially important for children, providing them with space to run around and enjoy themselves.

Ecosystem Under Threat Inle Lake in Myanmar

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 5, 2013) Inle Lake is the second-largest freshwater lake in Myanmar and home to the Inthe people. But the lake's ecosystem is now under threat through overfishing, deforestation, pollution and silting. Climate change is also having an impact.
