Simply Safest ORGANIC Fertilization Program
Pet, Kid, and Environmentally Friendly Lawn Care
You can enjoy all of the benefits of a nice green healthy lawn without jeopardizing your family's health or the health of our local environment. This truly is the most pet, kid, and environmentally friendly program available!
Our Organic Program will keep your lawn nice and green, control grub damage, and reduce and crowd out weeds over time. All of this requires no chemicals, just our know-how and quality organic products being applied at the right time. Our OMRI certified organic fertilizers build up in the soil and encourage microbial activity, literally putting life back into your lawn. Not only are the products we use safe but almost all of them are produced locally reducing pollution and supporting local jobs. Below is an explanation of each of our Organic Program services.
CORN GLUTEN w/ COMPOST-TEA
This high protein biproduct of the corn-starch and ethanol industries is completely safe, in fact it's been used for decades as food for livestock and dogs. It's primary purpose for our program is that it is a very effective Pre-emergent, it prevents the germination of annual weeds such as crabgrass. We combine this with a potent Organic fertilizer in compost-tea form for added soil stimulation and a beautiful green lawn in early spring.
LATE SPRING ORGANIC FERTILIZATION
Our Organic granular fertilizer provides needed nutrients such as nitrogen and potassium to the soil and also has high levels of Iron to maintain a deep green color and add organic material to your soil.
SUMMER ORGANIC FERTILIZATION
Our Organic granular fertilizer is essential to keep the lawn healthy during the stresses of summer. If you don't water at all and the lawn does go dormant this will help it recover more quickly in the fall.
NEMATODE NATURAL GRUB PROOFING
Nematodes are microscopic living organisms that are natural predators of the grub. We dilute the nematodes in water and spray them onto your lawn. The average lawn receives over 500 million. They move into the soil, seek out any grubs as a meal then colonize your soil building up resistence over time.
EARLY FALL ORGANIC COMPOST-TEA FERTILIZATION
Our Organic compost-tea fertilizer applied in August or September helps the lawn recover from the stresses of summer and begin the fall growth season strong.
Our Organic winterizer promotes continued deep root growth throughout the fall and provides the needed nutrients for the grass to store over winter for a quicker spring green-up next year.
LIMESTONE (pH Control)
Desired turf grasses thrive when the soil pH is near neutral while most weeds & crabgrass prefer soil that is acidic. The addition of Solu-Cal limestone to the soil raises the pH countering the acidic effect of annual rainfall and the effects from surrounding acidic trees. If the soil were to remain acidic the grass will not absorb nutrients optimally and will thin out allowing weeds & crabgrass to thrive and take over. All lawns need this done annually, some lawns will require multiple applications each year.
AERATION & OVERSEEDING
Aerating and overseeding the lawn is a critical step in maintaining an organic lawn. It gives us a needed unfair advantage in fighting weeds, crabgrass, and insects without chemicals. If done regularly in the fall we'll repair stressed or thin areas to naturally keep weeds & crabgrass choked out.
