Arthur is a Member of Our Expert Panel

Lawn Chick has invited credentialed, experienced horticulturists, landscapers, and turfgrass specialists to review our articles for errors.Β 

This step is taken to both ensure the accuracy of the content we publish, and also to improve transparency and trust for our readers.

We hope that this additional review by subject-matter experts allows our website visitors to feel confident that the article they’re reading offers the very best, accurate information.

Two important notes about this process that we want to make clear:

  • Members of our expert panel are compensated to lend us their expertise and help us ensure the accuracy of the content we publish. They are paid for their time and subject-matter knowledge, and their compensation is not tied in any way to the results of their evaluation.
  • Readers should not consider notice that an article has been reviewed by an expert on our panel to be an endorsement of any product or service Lawn Chick recommends. Rather, when an article is marked to indicate a member of our expert panel validated it, this only means that he or she reviewed the article for factual inaccuracies based on their experience, training, and expertise, and found the article content to be accurate.
