Working with Nature:  Lawns & Gardens How does your garden grow? Does the lawn need some help? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll head outside along with all the neighbors to talk about gardening and lawn care with specific ideas about organic techniques. Some landscapers are freezing weeds and introducing clover to keep lawns green without herbicides. And if you want to repel bugs, we've got one word for you: Marigolds. Maybe you've got other suggestions. Grab your gloves and join us Thursday at 9:00 a.m.
