Organic Landscaping requires organic land care professionals – experts are well trained and committed to:
- Maintaining soil health;
- Eliminating the use of synthetic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers;
- Increasing landscape diversity;
- Improving the health and well being of the people and web of life in our care.
How you can use organic landscaping to improve your lawn:
- Use organic/biological vs. synthetic pesticides, including insecticides, fungicides and herbicides;
- Use slow-release organic fertilizers;
- Avoid use of genetically engineered organisms;
- Build healthy soil that can support diverse soil life as well as strong growth of healthy grass;
- Use good cultural practices to encourage the growth of healthy grass and reduce the need for irrigation and other inputs;
- Increase diversity of plant cultivars and species where appropriate. This invites beneficial insects and predators, which help keep ecological balance in your landscape.
Every Yard Makes a Difference: Choose to keep synthetic pesticides and fertilizers off your lawn and gardens. Organic Landscaping not only safely improves your personal surroundings, it makes a positive contribution to our environment.
