South Dakota landscaping firm accidentally destroys 302 lawns after worker sprayed wrong chemical

Sioux Falls landscapers Kut and Kill Lawn Care admitted to the error, saying an experienced employee had accidentally used the wrong chemical during weed control spraying between April 19 and May 3.

The chemical lurked silently until May 9, when the sun came out and activated the herbicide, and the company realized its mistake, Kut and Kill owner Tate Eining told the Argus Leader this week.
