Overview

 

 

The quality of the home-owner’s lawn can tell you a lot about the quality of the home overall.

 

A NATIONAL SURVEY OF HOME-OWNERS reports that A HEALTHY AND GREEN LAWN EQUALS IMPROVED HOME VALUE.

 

Home-owners know that having a healthy, green lawn CONTRIBUTES TO THE OVERALL VALUE OF A HOME.

 

Home-owners also know that when buying a home, a GOOD LAWN will warrant a HIGHER PRICE.

 

CURB APPEAL, the initial feeling that home-owners get when looking at the exterior of a home, WAS IMPORTANT IN CHOOSING A HOME.

 

A well-maintained lawn and landscape CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED with conventional pest control products and fertilizers.

 

The use of pest control products to enhance the Urban Landscape is GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

 

For generations, the Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry has CONTRIBUTED EXTENSIVELY TO THE BEAUTIFICATION OF OUR URBAN LANDSCAPES, and THE PRESERVATION OF OUR ENVIRONMENT.

 

The Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry has adopted many OUTSTANDING, INNOVATIVE and INTERESTING IDEAS in order to provide THICKER, GREENER, PEST-FREE TURF AND ORNAMENTAL PLANTS.

 

This industry creates POSITIVE WAVES FOR SOCIETY.

 

The Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry MUST INFORM THE PUBLIC ABOUT ITS BENEFITS to the Urban Landscape.

Benefits Of A Healthy, Green Lawn Means Improved Home Value

 

 

Is your yard helping or hurting you in getting top dollar for your house this home buying season ?

 

According to TruGreen’s new Lawn Lifestyles National Survey of America, the MAJORITY OF HOME-OWNERS ( 79 per cent ) reported  ―

 

…  having a healthy, green lawn CONTRIBUTES TO THE OVERALL VALUE OF A HOME.

 

And home-owners ( 56 per cent ) said  ―

 

…  when buying a home, a GOOD LAWN would warrant a HIGHER PRICE.

 

In fact, more than half of Americans surveyed ( 53 per cent ) said  ―

 

…  the quality of the home-owner’s lawn can tell you a lot about the quality of the home overall.

Curb Appeal Power

 

 

Curb appeal, or that initial feeling that home-owners get when looking at the exterior of a home, is important when selecting a house to buy.

 

TruGreen’s Lawn Lifestyles National Survey Of America also revealed that the majority of Americans surveyed ( 72 per cent ) said « it takes seconds to form a first impression about the outside of a home » and those impressions take root, as over one-third ( 38 per cent ) said « once I’ve formed an opinion about a home’s appearance, it is hard to change my mind ».

 

According to the National Association of REALTORS®, the majority of home-owners ( 71 per cent ) surveyed in the new TruGreen Home Features Report said CURB APPEAL WAS IMPORTANT IN CHOOSING THEIR HOME.

 

Most of the home-owners reported having purchased a home with a healthy, green lawn ( 71 per cent ) and well-maintained landscaping ( 72 per cent ).

Survey Methodology

 

 

TruGreen’s Lawn Lifestyles National Survey Of America was fielded from January 3 – 9, 2013, using the field services of ORC International ( Opinion Research Corporation ).

 

The on-line omnibus survey was conducted among a nationally representative sample of Americans aged 18+ ( n=2,000 ), with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points at the 95 per cent confidence level.

 

For questions that were asked among home-owners who are personally responsible for making decisions regarding their lawn care ( n=829 ), the margin of error is plus or minus 3.4 percentage points at the 95 per cent confidence level.

 

The TruGreen Home Features Report conducted by the National Association of REALTORS® was fielded in October of 2012 from a sample of households that had purchased any type of residence real estate during 2010 to 2012 and still owned the property.

 

The survey sample was drawn from a representative panel of U.S. households monitored and maintained by an established survey research firm.

 

A total of 2,005 qualified households responded to the survey.

 

There is a 95 per cent confidence interval for the sample.

 

Households were sampled to meet age and income quotas representative of all home buyers drawn from the 2011 NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers.

Turf And Ornamental Plants BENEFIT From The Use Of Pest Control Products

 

 

The Modern Professional Lawn Care and Golf Industries can be described as the PLANET’S GREAT CONSERVATIONISTS with their OUTSTANDING AND INNOVATIVE IDEAS.

 

Day after day after day  ―  written in the newspapers, heard on the radio, seen on the television, and displayed throughout cyberspace  …

 

…  the Anti-Pesticide Movement ( a.k.a. the ecology or natural lawn care movement ) is urging for measures to TERRORIZE and DESTROY the Professional Lawn Care and Golf Industries, with ideas that have little basis in fact or science. 

 

In fact, the use of pest control products to enhance the Urban Landscape is GOOD for the environment.

 

Turf and ornamental plants BENEFIT from the use of pest control products.

 

Nonetheless, the Anti-Pesticide Movement has gained some powerful allies, such as law-makers and policy-makers who are spineless and naïve co-conspirators.

 

Many versions of the following phrase have been heard  …

 

…  the world would be a better place if lawns and golf courses were maintained more ecologically or more naturally. 

 

If each of us received five cents every time we heard this phrase, we would be literally spitting gold ingots.

 

Let’s think for a minute ! 

 

Here is another phrase   …  the public wants THICKER, GREENER, PEST-FREE TURF AND ORNAMENTAL PLANTS.

The Public Wants THICKER, GREENER, PEST-FREE Turf And Ornamentals

 

 

How does this phrase really apply to the Modern Professional Lawn Care and Golf Industries ? 

 

It’s not complicated. 

 

The Modern Professional Lawn Care and Golf Industries CAN BE DESCRIBED AS THE PLANET’S GREAT CONSERVATIONIST that supply the public with what it wants  … 

 

THICKER, GREENER, PEST-FREE turf and ornamental plants.

 

THICKER, GREENER, PEST-FREE turf and ornamental plants are the HIGH STANDARD of a MODERN LIFE-STYLE CHOICE.

 

The use of pest control products to enhance the Urban Landscape is GOOD for the environment.

 

Overall, turf and ornamental plants can be maintained with products that are HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED, FEDERALLY-LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC, and CAUSE NO HARM.

 

For generations, the Modern Professional Lawn Care and Golf Industries have been MAINTAINING AND CONSERVING THE WORLD’S LARGEST GROUND COVER VEGETATION  ―  TURF AND ORNAMENTAL PLANTS.

Anti-Pesticide Lunatics Prefer JUNK LAWNS And JUNK LANDSCAPES

 

 

The Modern Professional Lawn Care and Golf Industries have CONTRIBUTED EXTENSIVELY TO THE BEAUTIFICATION OF OUR URBAN LANDSCAPES, and THE PRESERVATION OF OUR ENVIRONMENT.

 

By contrast, Anti-Pesticide Activists, and their Environmental Terrorist Organizations, can be more precisely identified as RADICAL PRESERVATIONISTS that could not care less about the beautification of our Urban Landscape. 

 

In fact, Anti-Pesticide Policies have DESTROYED public and residential Green Spaces by turning them into GARBAGE DUMPS.

 

WHO WANTS TO LIVE IN #@!!% PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS ?!?! 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists PRETEND that the use of pest control products is not compatible with natural settings. 

 

Nonetheless, Anti-Pesticide Activists have pretentiously proclaimed that the natural environment needs their stewardship.

Why Don’t You Knock It Off With Them NEGATIVE WAVES ?

 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists are obsessed with preserving our world with ANTI-MODERNIST and ANTI-TECHNOLOGY thinking. 

 

They thrive on JUNK SCIENCE, and resort to LIES rather than the truth.

 

It is a fact that Anti-Pesticide Activists are inherently OPPOSED to the modern maintenance of turfgrasses and the beautification of the Urban Landscape. 

 

( One notable exception is Audubon International, but not Audubon state organizations. ) 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists PREFER JUNK LAWNS and JUNK LANDSCAPES that are unaltered by human activity, and are INFESTED with damaging weeds, insects, and disease  …  just as the Activists INFEST our society. 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists particularly DESPISE the cosmetic standards used for the maintenance of GOLF FACILITIES, which are arbitrarily considered too lofty. 

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists are re-enacting the needless conspiracy against DDT Insecticide. 

 

They are proceeding to TERRORIZE and ANNIHILATE the Modern Professional Lawn Care and Golf Industries, just like they did with the makers of DDT Insecticide !

DISCOVER WHAT ANTI-PESTICIDE AND ENVIRO-LUNATIC TERRORISTS ARE DOING AND SAYING ABOUT SUBVERSIVELY IMPOSING THEIR LIFE-STYLE CHOICES AGAINST OUR SOCIETY.

 

Force Of Nature  ―  The Whole Truth From An Independent Perspective.

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape, and by other ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.

 

We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide and Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERROR is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by these terrorist.

 

We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOUR  ―  scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.

 

An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from so-called activists who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.

 

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm and destroy the Green space industry, and the well being of our communities.

 

NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to Anti Pesticide PROHIBITION and the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT of somehow « saving » the environment.

 

NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON PROFIT NON PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.

 

NORAHG is dedicated to reporting the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.

 

NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.

 

Force Of Nature was launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009   ―   however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone FORCE OF NATURE Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.

 

On January 1st, 2009, Force Of Nature Reports were launched for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet   ―   however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone Force Of Nature Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.

 

On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.

 

Pesticide Truths and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SURVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
