They say the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. But is poisoning and fertilizing a turf what really makes sense?

The lawn companies will tell you, better beware! There are creepy critters in the grass - too frightening to bear!

A few months ago while filming a time-lapse near a pond in Perry, Georgia, I noticed movement in the still water in front of me. There, in the middle of emanating rings of motion was a dragonfly, fluttering in the water, trying with all its might to get airborne again....
