Yes, depending on which program you choose. The “Natural State Program” and all programs with the word “PLUS” in the name it utilizes a combination of the most modern organic fertilizers and chemical weed control products available in an attempt to minimize chemical inputs while providing healthy soil and a virtually weed-free lawn.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE TO USE AROUND CHILDREN AND PETS?
You will find that by using organic products over time, you will see a HUGE reduction in the amount of water needed to keep your lawn green. You should try to water your lawn at least three times a week. Infrequent and deep watering is ALWAYS better than every day for ten minutes per zone. If your lawn begins to go dormant from lack of water, it’s okay! It’s a natural defense mechanism to stay alive, and it will come back as healthy as ever when sufficient water is available.
ONCE ONE OF OUR PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED WILL I EVER NEED ANY ADDITIONAL SERVICES FOR MY LAWN?
Not necessarily but all programs should be considered a ‘FOUNDATION’ for the care of your lawn. These programs are not designed to cover every possible issue that currently exists or may arise over time such as prior weed infestation, fungus, pests, etc. There are also additional services that we highly recommend to achieve optimal lawn performance such as lime, aeration, and compost topdressing. ALL ADDITIONAL SERVICES WILL BE BILLED SEPARATELY UPON REQUEST / APPROVAL.
That depends on which program you choose. The “Premium Organic Plus” program is designed to deliver high-quality results right away. It does take a little bit longer the more organic you go, but not a great deal longer. The reason synthetic chemical fertilizers that are applied by chemical lawn care companies work so quickly is because they are water-soluble and dissolve and leach immediately. The downside to this is that up to 60% of the product ends up “off target” and inevitably in ground and surface water.
Every organic product we use can be applied near bodies of water because they do not contain synthetic sources of nitrogen and phosphorus. They will not contribute to algae blooms because of this. They are also chelated, meaning they are available to the plant immediately.
If you can, you should always mulch your clippings. Grass clippings hold tons of nutrients and moisture. They will not contribute to thatch. In fact, when you switch to organic products you will notice that the thatch layer in your turf will decrease significantly.
