Our standard organic lawn care program includes four distinct areas of service:
We use only organic fertilizers that contain slow-release nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and various micronutrients. These fertilizers support sustainable, year-round growth and vitality. The goals and beliefs with organic products are to truly improve the overall health of the turf without artificial "greening" methods.
Even healthy lawns are vulnerable to attack by unwanted pests, including chinch bugs, ants and army worms. If we discover an infestation on your turf, we identify the culprit and use "least-toxic" mitigation techniques consistent with the tenets of Integrated Pest Management. If a control product is necessary, we only apply it to the affected area and a small buffer band to prevent the pest's spread.
We take a similarly low-impact approach to controlling weed growth. The first line of defense is dense, healthy turf grass. If weeds do begin to sprout on your lawn, we use gentle controls and other measures to prevent their spread. However, when using low-impact methods, some stubborn weeds are still possible.
As fall progresses, increasingly cool, damp weather creates favorable conditions for certain fungal diseases, including take-all, grey leaf spot and brown patch. Since these diseases can be tricky and expensive to treat, we monitor your lawn at regular intervals and immediately notify you of a potential problems while beginning treatment.
