Hiring Professional Help

Hiring a lawn maintenance or landscaping company

As of April 22, 2009, all professional lawn maintenance companies will be required to comply with the Cosmetic Pesticides Ban Act which bans the use of pesticides for pest infestations (insects, fungi or weeds) on lawns, gardens and other outdoor areas. They will still be allowed to use biopesticide or lower risk pesticide to manage weeds, insects and plant diseases on lawns, gardens, parks and school yards.

For more information on what professional lawn maintenance companies need to know call the Ministry of the Environment’s Public Information Centre at
1-800-565-4923 or 416-325-4000.
