Abstract/Contents:"The application of fertilizers and pesticides can improve turf density, root structure, and increase water infiltration rate and uptake, potentially reducing nutrient loss through leaching and runoff compared to a landscape that receives no inputs (Petrovic and Easton, 2005). However, many municipalities in Canada have prohibited the cosmetic use of pesticides on lawns. The action is based on the fear that the cosmetic use of pesticides poses unacceptable risks. Similar legislation has been passed for phosphorus fertilizers in several states in the USA. The objective of this study was to determine the quantitative relationship between lawn density and composition and the nutrient loading."
