I'm actually not a big fan of most fertilizers because of the runoff into our water systems. I think there are better ways to do things, not always easier, but better. We are a lazy people and prefer the ease and convenience of commercial fertilizers. I also believe we should try to plant more native plants/grasses instead of trying to get things to adapt to our area just because they are pretty.

That’s a long winded way to tell us your yard sucks.

I'm calling BS on this. While I have no doubt that global warming is real - I believe it's due to other things than the left keep blaming.

IMO, global warming is due to parking lots, roads and roofs. Walk across an open field and then walk across a parking lot and tell me which one was hotter!! Climb up on your roof during the afternoon and see how pleasant it is up there.

To say that your yard is a cause is just BS.

I live in the country, work in the city. About a 30 mile difference. It definitely seems hotter in the city. Even when one watches the weather. Temps are always expected to be higher in metro areas.

There is a little truth to it.
What most people have been taught to think of as 'weeds' are actually native species grasses and the Bermudas and St Augustines have become the non-native, 'invasive', standards.
And think how much energy and effort goes into maintaining those non-native species as dominant and how quickly the native grasses can take over if left alone.

Yeah, but let those native species of grass and weeds grow in their natural state in your yard and see what the city or HOA have to say,

Give me the word, and the money, and I would turn my entire yard into a rock garden
