Organic Lawn Care in Summit, NJ

If you want lush green grass without using harmful chemicals, it all begins with a soil test. A healthy lawn starts from the ground up. Our organic lawn services for Summit clients include:

Organic Lawn Care

Soil Testing and Analysis

Our organic lawn care begins with a soil test to measure pH, nutrient levels, organic matter, and more. We then customize soil amendments and fertilizer to address shortages and imbalances.

Organic Lawn Care

Lawn Overseeding and Core Aeration

Core aeration helps your grasses’ roots access oxygen and water, which might be difficult in compact soil. Overseeding can fill in any gaps and suppress weed growth. 

Organic Lawn Care

Organic Lawn Fertilization

We use a custom granular fertilizer with slow-release technology and a liquid soil conditioner that includes beneficial bacteria for your lawn. These methods help keep your grass lush and green for more months of the year. 

Organic Lawn Care

Grub and Insect Pest Management

Our grub and insect pest management systems help us treat your lawn for grubs, which are the larval form of beetles and other borer insects, and other ground insect species that could harm your lawn. Our organic treatments are safe for pets, children, and beneficial species.

Tick and Mosquito Treatment in Summit, NJ

Tick and mosquito treatment is essential at certain times of year to break the reproductive cycle of these pests. Ticks and mosquitos carry a range of blood-borne diseases, including Lyme disease, Babesiosis, West Nile virus, malaria, encephalitis, Dengue fever, Chikungunya, and Zika virus. Ticks can also latch onto pets, and mosquitos can spread canine heartworm.

We offer organic tick and mosquito treatment at key times of year to interrupt breeding, egg-laying, and maturation cycles so you can enjoy your yard year-round.

Why Summit?

Summit is a charming city with a rich history. The city prioritizes education and supports a multicultural community through the arts, non-profit organizations, cultural events, music programs, and more. The area offers several historical landmarks to explore, as well as nature trails, hiking, and several parks. We love visiting the Reeves-Reed Arboretum and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey on our days off.

Did You Know?

The City of Summit, NJ, requires a tree removal permit to cut down any tree with a diameter of 16 inches or greater. There are some exceptions, including if the tree is not “significant” (less than 16 inches in diameter or not a landmark tree) or if a New Jersey Certified Tree Expert labels the tree as dead, diseased, or hazardous.
