What is Soil Without Microbes?

Without soil microbes, soil becomes lifeless. It loses nutrients needed by plants, earthworms have nothing to feed on and bad microorganisms become outnumbered by the beneficial ones. The soil becomes compacted and loses the capacity to retain water properly or provide oxygen to plant roots. Without healthy soil, your plants will no longer thrive. By continually adding synthetic chemicals to your lawn and landscape, you encourage them to become dependent on the chemicals because the soil is no longer healthy.

How do you encourage good microbial activity?

We encourage everyone to add fresh compost and a layer of mulch to garden beds each season. You can even add a thin layer of compost to turf and then water in. Apply organic liquid seaweed to lawns each month, or enroll in our Soil Building Program and we will apply our state-of-the art, locally produced liquid compost extract formula to your lawn and landscape on a regular schedule. We'll also inspect plants and lawns for possible issues that might arise throughout the year.
