What is organic lawn management and how is it different than the stuff I’m using now?
An organic lawn uses only natural methods and no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or chemical herbicides. Conventional fertilizers and pesticides destroy the soil’s natural ecosystem, causing the lawn to become chemically dependent and relying on more chemicals to sustain it.
This is the vicious circle that most of our lawns find themselves in today; the lawn becomes a “junkie”. Unlike the organic lawn seen below.
With an organic lawn program and its products and services, we build up the beneficial nutrients and organisms that should occur naturally in the soil.
