Has anyone heard anything about a company called Organicare out of the Dallas Area? A neighbor was having their yard sprayed for dallis grass, clover, oxalis, and a few other weeds today, as well as fertilizing. I was wondering if it is truly organic because the smell coming off of the yard smelled like synthetic fertilizer.

I do not know what the fertilizers they use contain, but it seems to be okay...

The information they have regading corn gluten meal is interesting:

The only organic weed killer I know of is vinegar and it is non selective. It will kill all those weeds plus kill all the grass.

If it smelled like chemicals, it probably was. It could be they offer a variety of programs for lawns.
