Hall of Fame
Pesticide Notification Registry


The following homes in New Canaan are committed to caring for their lawns and gardens without chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. Some may display the Pesticide Free Zone sign, some may not; some devote greater time and resources to the “look” of their property, some do not. To us, they are all heroes! We list them here to recognize their efforts, as well as to create a self-guided tour of pesticide-free properties. Feel free to drive by, but please remember to respect the residents’ privacy and concern for safety. Showcase lawns would be happy to provide tours or answer questions, but arrangements must be made in advance by emailing or phoning Pesticide-Free New Canaan for an appointment. If you are eligible to be on this list and would like to be recognized for your stewardship, email us at and write "Hall of Fame" in the subject.
