Is Yellow The New Green
Posted by auroracitizen on May 6, 2012
Yesterday, I had the occasion to drive around Aurora running a number of errands. I was shocked by the volume of dandelions .
It seems like every square inch of town owned boulevard is covered in yellow dandelions — which will soon turn to white seedlings and spread across Aurora.
Residents are fighting a losing battle against these plants in spite of the fact that everywhere I turned people were out digging these pests from their lawns. Trying to hold back their assault.
Since the ban on pesticides, the state of green has diminished.
There are now more environmentally and people friendly methods available of dealing with these weeds, but it looks like to town has thrown in the towel. Resultant, if you are unlucky enough to live near any town owned land, you are going to soon be overrun with the weeds moving onto your property no matter what efforts you make to maintain a healthy green lawn.
If Aurora doesn’t want to be overrun by these weeds — then something needs to be done.
