How Organic is this Progarm
The Natural State Program is our flagship service. At 80% organic, this 9 treatment system prioritizes organics while providing amazing results. We use a combination of the most modern organic fertilizers and chemical weed control products available in an attempt to minimize chemical inputs and maximise microbial inoculation providing healthy soil and a virtually weed-free lawn. The organics improve the soil’s ability to retain nutrients and all other inputs meaning less runoff of fertilizer, more nutrient availability for the grass, more disease and pest resistance and less need for chemical intervention. The only synthetics necessary in this program are Spring and Fall pre-emergents and the occasional spot-spray post-emergent. The Natural State Program is designed to “spoon feed” your lawn with organically derived micronutrients and trillions of beneficial microbes alongside high tech organically sources nitrogens to promote foliar growth. This program is ideal for fungal prone grasses such as Zoysia and St. Augustine. We take a highly scientific approach to maximize a healthy “Soil Food Web” providing deep green, lush turf that is healthy from root to tip. Inoculating the lawn with specific strains of beneficial bacteria and fungi at key times of the year drastically reduce the risk of fungal outbreaks that can be devastating to a Zoysia/St. Augustine lawn. Also, your soil PH (acidity) will be monitored three times annually to ensure optimal results. One application of lime is included in this program. This lime application is intended to maintain an ideal PH NOT correct significant PH imbalances.
**Although we do not currently offer aeration services, we highly recommend it be done at least once annually. Please call for provider recommendations.
