Go Barefoot in Your Lawn in 2015!
The year is almost over and we’re already thinking about our New Year’s resolutions. This year, we’ll turn even more to organics.
The year is almost over and we’re already thinking about our New Year’s resolutions. Along with the usual resolutions to eat better, spend more time with family and friends, and manage stress, we think that a “garden cleanse” should also be on your list. There’s growing awareness that we all need to reduce the chemical profile in our lives by adding more organic fruits and vegetables to our diet as well as use more natural cleaners in the home; but most forget about the lawn and landscape. A lush lawn should also be safe; a place where your children and pets can run and romp without any worry of chemical exposure. Don’t you want your lawn and landscape to be “barefoot approved”?
Organics in the landscape benefit your family, but they also are what’s best for our environment. Chemicals used to maintain your landscape can enter our drinking water, damage trees, harm wildlife and potentially poison humans with improper exposure. Long-term use of synthetic fertilizers can damage soil by creating a void of beneficial soil life and a chemical dependency in your plants. Synthetic fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides can kill the natural bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes and worms in the soil that help work the soil and feed your lawn and landscape. “Dead” soil will need more water and more fertilizer.
It’s not too late!
By going organic in the New Year, you can begin to reverse the damage created by years of chemical applications in your lawn and landscape. Compost, organic fertilizers and biological amendments such as worm castings, molasses and fulvic acid will rebuild the soil. Plus, once you are on an organic program in the landscape, beneficial insects such as ladybugs, earthworms and nematodes will repopulate your garden, reducing the need for insecticides.
Are you ready to go organic in the landscape for 2015? Or, maybe you are ready for a friend or family member to take the next step with a gift of organics? Our Soil Building Program can start in January!
