New Fertilizer Rules Gets an OK
Fertilizer in water can feed algae blooms and accelerate the growth of aquatic weeds and soon residents and professional landscapers will have to abide by rules for applying fertilizers.

Rules intended to improve water quality in canals that drain the city have been approved by the city council. These rules include; refraining from applying fertilizers on lawns or plants during a flood watch or warning, a hurricane watch or warning or a tropical storm watch or warning – or when heavy rain is likely; no application of fertilizer to water-saturated soil, before installing sod or within 30 days after laying sod; fertilizer cannot be applied in “fertilizer free zones” within 10 feet of any pond, stream, lake, canal, wetland or other body of water; and landscapers and other commercial users of fertilizers must complete a six-hour Florida Friendly training program by the end of 2013.
