Fertilize Your Lawn Responsibly
Maryland's lawn fertilizer law helps protect the Chesapeake Bay from excess nutrients entering its waters from lawns and other managed grassy areas. If you fertilize your lawn yourself, go to the Maryland Department of Agriculture website to learn how to prevent excess nutrients from washing off your property and into storm drains, streams and rivers that feed the Bay. https://mda.maryland.gov/SiteAssets/Pages/fertilizer/HowToFertilizeYourLawn.pdf
