Your lawn can be afflicted by all kinds of problems. You may have noticed dead patches, weeds, puddling, a build up of thatch, moss, or a combination of these issues. It can make it hard for you to enjoy your lawn – you may find yourself avoiding it and spending time elsewhere. If you’re worried about using weed killers and other traditional lawn treatments and are looking for a solution that lasts in the long-term, a good organic lawn program is your solution.
A struggling, patchy lawn in need of our Organic Lawn Care Service.
Organic lawn care uses a combination of techniques to change the conditions of your turf. It locates the imbalances and fixes them, rather than just covering them up. Amendments and organic herbicides, combined with a program to build soil heath will get you on your way to a lush, resilient lawn. By replicating and encouraging Nature’s systems, organics will help your lawn become self-sustaining and resilient, with more access to water and nutrients.
We follow a step-by-step process to rehab your property, starting with a soil test. After assessing your soil, we provide you with a plan, tailored specifically to your soil’s needs. We administer 6 treatments a year, in accordance with the seasons. Each service is a combination of a FertileTea application, organic fertilizers, soil amendments and other vital amendments, depending on the needs of your specific soil. As your soil revitalizes over time, typically after 2-3 years, we can reduce the treatments to 4 per year.
Application of our probiotic tea (FertileTea) is part of our Organic Lawn Care Service.
Probiotic Tea – We brew our own worm castings compost tea (FertileTea) teeming with microorganisms to nurse your turf back to life. These tiny microbes help breakdown nutrients freeing them up for plants to use.
Premium Fertilizers – We use only premium organic fertilizers that break down over time, providing continuous food for the turf to encourage optimal growth.
Aeration – Core aerating your lawn once a year is a key part of our program. Aeration brings air, water and nutrients to the roots and helps ease compaction, puddling, and thatch.
Weed Control – With the help of corn gluten meal, we kill emerging weeds in the Fall. By invigorating the turf with all the nutrients it needs to grow stronger, deeper roots, the lawn will naturally crowd out the weeds.
Moss Removal – We control moss in lawns by feeding turf the nutrients it needs to naturally crowd out the moss. This is especially an issue in Pacific Northwest gardens and in shady turf, where moss can dominate.
