Ant, Flea, Tick and Mosquito Control
These nuisance pests may not damage your lawn but they can be among some of the bigger pests in and around your yard. By applying seasonal and targeted applications of EPA exempt and organic control products we can help you minimize these invasions. Any product we use to control insects in your lawn has been proven to be safely used around your children and pets.
Compaction is one of your lawns greatest enemies and can work against the success of your organic lawn. This is why we recommend having your lawn aerated often. Aeration provides an avenue for water, nutrients, and oxygen to get to the root zone, thus helping the soil food web to flourish.
Mole Cricket, Grub and Chinch Bug Control
The ultimate goal of your organic lawn is to develop such strong plants that nuisance insects can exist in your soil but are unable to cause damage to your lawn. A lawn with mole crickets, grubs or chinch bugs will attract small animals like moles and armadillos who eat these insects. Getting the insect infestation under control is the key to discouraging small animals looking for food in your yard. Our pest control products are effective and are also environmentally safe.
pH Adjustment and Soil Analysis
Proper soil pH could potentially be the most important factor in establishing a successful organic lawn. Populations of thriving beneficial bacteria prefer a soil that is slightly alkaline. The overuse of chemicals and pesticides tend to create soil that is toxic and acidic, while some soil types tend to be exceptionally alkaline. For our new customers we perform a pH test, and a soil analysis. We will share our findings with you, and make suggestions tailored to the needs of your yard, as well as your budget.
Tree and Shrub Program
Tree and Shrub programs that rely completely on the application of chemicals have actually caused more harm than good to existing ornamentals. When a plant is forced to grow much more rapidly than nature intended it to, a recipe for insect and disease infestations is created. The Bee Safe tree and shrub program will protect your landscape ornamentals without the use of harsh chemical fertilizers and dangerous pesticides.
