Questions and Answers

Local Regulations
Are there watering restrictions in Chicago, IL?
Despite restrictions across Chicago area, water use is taxing suburban systems
Local Regulations
Does Chicago, IL have long / overgrown grass ordinances?
Any person who owns or controls property within the city must cut or otherwise control all weeds on such property so that the average height of such weeds does not exceed ten inches. Any person who violates this subsection shall be subject to a fine of not less than $600 nor more than $1,200. Each day that such violation continues shall be considered a separate offense to which a separate fine shall apply
Ask the experts
What's your number one tip for improving the quality of your grass?
Applying water too rapidly causes runoff, as grass can absorb only so much water at a time. When runoff happens, soil, fertilizers and pesticides can wind up in nearby waterways. Also, over-irrigation can push nutrients deep into the soil and away from plant roots. Watering deeply and infrequently – about twice a week and 4 to 6 inches deep can help prevent under-watering or overwatering.
