Organic Lawn Care
Benefits of going organic
There are many reasons why people are choosing a more eco-friendly option for their lawns. For starters, over-fertilizing with non-organic chemicals can lead to further damaging your soil, whereas the organic options are less concentrated and therefore less likely to burn your lawn, and instead will improve the soil quality over time.
Another benefit of organic lawn care, is that it will help improve the overall health of the entire ecosystem living in your lawn, and will actually boost natural nutrients that are proven to give longer lasting results.
Patience, young grasshopper
When it comes to using organic lawn care products, there is no such thing as a quick fix. If you’re looking for immediate results, that is where chemical fertilizers will come in handy. Because organic fertilizers are aimed at restoring and rejuvenating the soil, you might even experience a decline in the appearance of your lawn in the short term while it heals itself. With a little bit of patience, organic lawn care will bring back life into your lawn like you’ve never seen it before.

Everything about organic lawn care
By going organic, can I still have a nice looking lawn?
Definitely! There is a period of time that it takes to transition your lawn to use only organic methods and products, but give it a few seasons and your lawn will look better than ever. The longer you use organic products, the more nutrients your soil will begin to absorb, the healthier the entire ecosystem becomes, and more easily it can withstand drought and fight off pests.
Is it more expensive to use organic fertilizers?
The upfront cost of switching to organic will likely cost more than the standard chemical lawn care products, however the cost savings happen over time. Eventually, as your lawn recovers it will become stronger and more resilient to drought or pests and will require much less maintenance, time, money and energy in the long run.
Will organic lawn care products remove weeds?
Organic products do not have the same targeted and aggressive treatment approach like any of the chemically treated products, however, the need to remove weeds will decrease over time as your lawn and soil become healthy after every season.
Are there organic products that work to fight grubs?
The good news is, that a healthy lawn can withstanding 6 grubs per square feet on average. If you’re currently dealing with a grub problem, not to worry–there is such a thing as natural grub treatments, known as beneficial nematodes.
