Of utmost importance in organic, sustainable lawn care is soil testing. The first thing we will recommend after meeting with you to discuss the goals for your property is a soil test. To do this, we will collect soil samples from different areas of the lawn and send it to a lab that performs comprehensive soil testing. This comprehensive test will provide us with information regarding the biological makeup of your soil which can then be used to customize a program to address the soil imbalances specific to your property. The soil test will serve as a blueprint for our services, allowing us to effectively optimize the soil on your property for ideal chemical-free growing conditions.
Organic Fertilizer Applications
Organic fertilizers provide a 100% organic, balanced food source to your lawn. Unlike synthetic fertilizers which directly feed the plant to turn it green for a short period of time, organic fertilizers encourage microbial activity within the soil. They must be broken down by soil bacteria and fungi into forms that plants can then absorb. This biological activity facilitates the slow, consistent release of nutrients that give you a healthier, greener lawn while improving soil quality at the same time. By using organic fertilizers you can enjoy a lush, green lawn without worrying about the safety of your children and pets or any harmful effects on the environment.
Additional Turf Care Solutions
Other services that might be included in your organic turf care program are compost tea, biostimulant applications, compost top dressing, core aeration, overseeding, and natural weed control. Because there is no “one size fits all” approach, we will have to assess your property (and preferably the results of a soil test) prior to developing a comprehensive program to meet your needs.
