Organic lawn care is a well-balanced alternative to the quick-fix chemicals and inorganic fertilizers that too many lawn care services still rely on. A short term salve that masks the symptoms of a lawn’s deeper deficiencies, the adverse side-effects of pesticides couldn’t be more different than the benefits offered by organic lawn care. Here at Clean Air Lawn Care, we’re committed to giving our customers grass that’s truly greener.
Organic Lawn Care Produces Healthier Lawns
Organic Fertilizers Naturally Benefit Lawns
Organic fertilizers provide the soil with nutrients it naturally craves, which in turn promotes the growth of organic matter and microorganisms, and leads to a greener, more resilient lawn that’s able to hold up over time.
While inorganic fertilizers claim some of the same temporary gains, the environmental and economic costs of using such products far outweigh the benefits. Point blank: chemical pesticides only help your lawn superficially and in the short-run. Below the grassline, these products are breaking down healthy soil, polluting groundwater, and, if left to fester, causing serious harm to our families and communities.
According to the EPA, compared to chemical treatments, non-chemical methods are generally effective for longer periods of time. They are less likely to create hardy pest populations that develop the ability to resist pesticides. And many non-chemical pest controls can be used with fewer safeguards, because they are generally thought to pose virtually no hazards to human health or the environment.
Organic Lawn Care Conserves Resources
Organic lawn care systems conserve the Earth’s limited resources. At Clean Air Lawn Care, our organic fertilizers and weed control programs help you determine what’s right for your lawn based on practical measures, such as anticipated rainfall and other climate considerations unique to your area. When your grass does need watering, our elective irrigation maintenance service will ensure you’ll reach the correct areas of your lawn with minimal runoff—runoff that—we’d like to remind you—won’t contaminate waterways or drinking water because we only use organic fertilizers.
Our organic lawn care program also encourages recycling as much as possible. Grass clippings from your lawn may be reused as mulch, composted on site, or removed to an organic waste recycling center. On our watch, they’ll never end up in some plastic bag in a landfill.
Organic Lawn Care Promotes Healthy Soil
Organic lawn care treatments demand the discipline necessary to ensure essential microorganisms will thrive in the soil. Such soil self-improvement plans require a steady diet of organic fertilizers, which are comprised of nutrients that encourage long term root growth. For only in concert with a well-balanced soil will grassroots reach their maximum depth, therefore retaining vital water for longer periods of time. Subsequently, you’re left with a heartier lawn that’s nearly self-sustaining, and far less dependent on your sprinkler system.
Organic Lawn Care Controls Pests
Chemical pesticides kill off the beneficial organisms that fight for us below the grassline. Predictably, pests find chemically-saturated lawns appealing and thrive in uneven ecosystems.
The best way to eradicate pests from your lawn is to make the environment unattractive to them. By creating a healthy, ecological coalition in the soil, you’ll ally yourself to the favorable microorganisms, insects and plants that keep your lawn healthy, all while discouraging any unrest from pests.
Organic Lawn Care Saves You Money
Here at Clean Air, we’ve got a proven treatment program for rehabilitating chemically-addled ecosystems. We’ll begin by weaning your lawn off the drugs it depends on, move to a full detox from all pesticides and inorganic fertilizers, and then begin to build your grass up stronger than it’s ever been before.
Through the regimented routine of our organic lawn practices, your soil will eventually acquire the endurance to heal itself and sustain growth. Which means you’ll not only be able to stop spending money on chemical quick-fixes (as our competitors suggest you should, three times a year), but that once your soil is healthy, it will independently take control of its own ecosystem, and be much cheaper to maintain.
