Everything shared on this website is my opinion and only my opinion. I am not a doctor, lawyer or astronaut and I don’t play one on the internet. As such, anything I write is (obviously) not a substitute for medical advice and you should get medical advice from a competent professional whenever needed.

I’m always grateful and appreciative when you share my posts and information with your family and friends and you are what makesTheSummerLawns.com so special. I welcome links to my articles and shares on social media, but do not allow full-reprinting of my articles (or any excerpts longer than 10%, this is bad for your SEO anyway, so just don’t do it!).

For the purpose of disclosure, please assume that all links are affiliate links and that I make a small commission through any purchases made through links on this website.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about all links, posts, photos and other material on this website: Any/all of the links on this website are affiliate links of which TheSummerLawns.com® receives a small commission from sales of certain items, but the price is the same for you.
TheSummerLawns.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com or endless.com, MYHABIT.com, SmallParts.com, or AmazonWireless.com. Pages on this site may include affiliate links to Amazon and its affiliate sites on which the owner of this website will make a referral commission.
What is an Affiliate Link?
Many (but not all) of the links on TheSummerLawns.com are affiliate links. This means that a special tracking code is used and that I may make a small commission on the sale of an item if you purchase through one of these links. The price of the item is the same for you whether it is an affiliate link or not, and using affiliate links helps me to maintain this website and support my family.
In some cases, I may also use a link and provide a discount code for an item. In these cases, I may still earn an affiliate commission and the price may actually be LESS for you by using this link or tracking code.
Links to other companies like are also affiliate company links.
When Do I Use Affiliate Links?
If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, support and would recommend without an affiliate link. Unless noted otherwise, any product I link to is one I have purchased myself and use for myself or my family. I do not accept free products for review and also disclose if I am affiliated with a company in any other way that benefits me financially. (Please read my Full Disclaimer for information on non-affiliate relationships that I may benefit from financially.)
I know that many bloggers accept free products for review or write sponsored posts and while I personally don’t find anything wrong with this (as long as the nature of the relationship is disclosed properly), it is my personal policy to purchase products and use them myself before promoting to or linking to them. In many cases, I am offered free products for review and refuse them.
My first priority is always providing resources to help you create positive changes in your life, and I will only ever link to products or resources (affiliate or otherwise) that fit within this purpose.
Nature of Affiliate Relationships
Please note that while I personally purchase, review and use every product I link to, these products are purchased from third party companies and I do control these companies or have a financial interest other than an affiliate relationship unless otherwise disclosed.
For this reason, I cannot ensure that any item purchased through a link onTheSummerLawns.com is shipped on time, packaged properly, or that you will like it. Any problems or concerns with a specific product purchased through a link on this website should be directed to the company the item was purchased from.

All information is intended to motivate readers to make their own nutrition and health decisions after consulting with their health care provider. I am not a doctor, lawyer, psychiatrist, therapist, or your mother, and I don’t play one on the internet.
The author of this site encourages you to consult a doctor before making any health changes, especially any changes related to a specific diagnosis or condition. No information on this site should be relied upon to determine diet, make a medical diagnosis, or determine treatment for a medical condition. The information on this website is not intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a qualified health care professional and is not intended as medical advice.

The FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there is a financial interest or bias related to a recommendation or whenever a blogger’s opinion may be financially motivated in any way. More importantly, I have a desire to always be transparent and honest with readers and to disclose how I make money from this website.
The FTC also requires disclosure about any affiliate links. I specifically note at the top of a post when affiliate links are present, but for disclosure purposes, assume that any link you click on is an affiliate link. This means that I will earn a small commission from Amazon or other company if you decide to purchase the product linked to.
This means that if you order natural toothpaste or banan slicer from a link on TheSummerLawns.com I earn commission as much as a whopping $1.65 or $0.32, respectively, and these small commissions eventually add up to help me do things like pay for hosting, etc.. For this reason, I’m very grateful when you use a link because it helps me keep TheSummerLawns.com up and running .
Many of the links on TheSummerLawns.com are purely for informational purposes, but I do earn a small commission on many such links including links to books, products and services so please assume for any given link, I may earn a commission of some kind if you purchase a product.
I evaluate potential advertising partners on a case by case basis, whose products, mission, and values align with mine. I do not work with or allow the following:
- Paid or sponsored blog posts
- Free products for review
- Paid links or link exchanges
- Brand ambassadorships
- Ad networks or other non-curated advertisements
- Third party promotional companies or services
- Network marketing, multi-level marketing, or other pyramid structures
- Unsolicited joint venture promotions
I do not write paid posts. I do not accept free products for review. My thoughts and opinions are my own and not of those of any sponsor or advertiser. If I link to a product on this website, it is because I have purchased it myself, use it for my family and think it is high-quality.
I make a sincere effort to be respectful, kind and transparent onTheSummerLawns.com and ask the same respect from you. For this reason, rude, offensive, or harmful comments will not be tolerated. You are welcome to disagree, just do it nicely.
