New Year’s Resolutions? Add Healthy Soil to the List!
Healthy soil makes the world a better place!
With the New Year right around the corner, it’s time to start making that list of resolutions. If you are thinking of improving the health of your family by eating more organic foods, spending more time outdoors, or just making a commitment to refreshing your outdoor space, why add your home environment to the list? Landscapes maintained using synthetic chemicals can expose your family to a host of hazards. By choosing organic lawn care, you can resolve to build a healthier family and healthier soil.
Go organic for the kids!
Just as a solid foundation is necessary for your home, healthy soil is the building block of a beautiful lawn. If you’ve been maintaining your lawn with synthetics, know that your soil could take some time to recover. Building up the natural populations of beneficial microbes and improving texture won’t happen overnight. But if you stick with a systematic program of healthy soil building, you’ll start to see the difference in your lawn and landscape plants as the soil becomes more bioactive. Our Soil Building Program helps rebuilds your soil.
What makes organic lawn care worth the time?
- Healthy soil reduces water waste so you use water more efficiently.
- Healthy soil reduces water runoff, and helps water drain properly.
- Lawns will require less fertilization when growing in healthy, nutrient rich soil.
- Healthy lawns are better able to resist pests and diseases than weak plants.
- Healthy lawns that are vigorous are better able to choke out weeds naturally.
- Weeds love bad soil…boost your soil and fewer weeds will take hold.
- Healthy lawns growing in healthy soil help reduce soil erosion.
We know soil may not be a sexy topic…but healthy topsoil is crucial to the health of the environment and us.
Growing your family?
Whether you are adopting a new puppy or expecting a child, you want to make sure their environment is safe. Kids and pets play in the backyard, roll around in the grass and sometimes they’ll even eat the soil. Maintaining your lawn organically will cut down on exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. Reducing the chemicals in your home environment can have many health benefits.
