Common Sense Grounds Maintenance

McLean Gardens' 23-acre setting provides residents with lawn areas, many large and small trees, and a variety of shrubs.  And individual residents have created and maintain lovely gardens around their buildings.

In 2003 as part of an effort to protect the health of everyone, especially children and pets, and at the recommendation of the Landscape Committee, the Association Board adopted a common sense approach to pest and weed control called Integrated Pest Management (IPM) that applies to both landscape contractors and residents.  IPM is a knowledge-based holistic approach,  emphasizing biological, cultural, and physical methods  for managing pests and weeds.  IPM permits use of least-toxic pesticides and herbicides as a last resort.  The Sustainability Committee is currently promoting the use of native plant species to bring back the birds and insects that will help restore the area’s ecological balances.
