Just read the Energy Times article from April 08, "Greening Up," and here were some things that stood out to me:
(As of 200 Americans apply over 90 million pounds of weedkiller on their lawns and gardens every year.
The yards of suburbia are subject to more pesticide applications per acre than farmland.
But organic lawncare is on the rise! As of 2002, organics made up 5% of the landscaping market, and as of 2008, 10%. (Must be even more now)
