Chemical free lawn and open space care

Asked September 11, 2019, 5:52 PM EDT

I am going to present a proposal to our HOA to encourage a natural approach to open area maintenance, ideally pesticide and herbicide fre. We are promoting a bee, bird and butterfly friendly community. I have three questions
1. what is the realistic alternative to traditional chemical weed and pest control for large grass and shrub/tree areas managed by our HOA
2. Is anyone else doing this
]3. Are there educational materials I can use for my presentation, and also to distribute to the 75 homes in our community Thank you very much
