There’s nothing like a rich, green lawn. As a homeowner, you know just how much hard work it takes to maintain its vibrancy. Keeping up with your neighbors can be an exhausting, expensive, and troubling experience, considering all the chemical fertilizers, weed applications, and pesticides that are considered necessary in standard, traditional lawn care. You love your lush yard, but could there be a more effective, safer alternative?
At Elements Lawn Care, we believe there is.
Fresh Formulas For A Green Lawn
A regiment heavy on multiple applications of purely chemical fertilizers, weed applications and pesticides can have a deleterious effect on your lawn over the long term. Many fertilizers focus on providing high concentrations of nutrients for the grass but can also destroy a lot of the microbes in the soil. Microbial activity is necessary to break down the organic matter into the nutrient building blocks that grass, trees, flowers and bushes need to thrive.
At Elements Lawn Care, we use a liquid compost tea called Holganix to inject life back into your lawn. Full of bio-nutrients and living biology, this organic compost tea encourages the growth of beneficial microbes that naturally increase the amount of organic matter in the soil. This significantly reduces the amount of chemical fertilizer necessary for lush, green grass.
A Balance Between Nature And Man
Our hybrid approach to lawn care uses organic compost tea, organic based granular fertilizers, organic root enhancer, and organic grub prevention to significantly reduce the amount of nitrates and pesticides used in lawn maintenance. Over a three-year-period, chemical fertilizers and pesticides will be reduced by 50% or more!
As a new approach lawn care company, we also use multiple ecologically-minded methods to increase the natural drought, weed, and pest resistance of your lawn. Lawn core aeration, for example, can be used to increase air, water and nutrient circulation not just in compacted or highly-thatched areas but also throughout your yard. Over-seeding your lawn with drought-hardy grass seed nurtures a denser, stronger turf as a natural weed prevention.
We don’t like pesticides any more than you, but they do have a role and we understand the importance of reducing overall usage while getting the best results. Unfortunately, organic weed control methods achieve marginal success at best and are very expensive. We’re constantly on the watch for safer products as well as techniques to reduce use.
Maintenance For A New Millennium
Progress frequently comes only when we rethink the way we do the things we do. Chemical pesticides and fertilizers increased crop yields dramatically in the mid-twentieth century, but the decades to follow revealed unanticipated side effects. Now, mindful of the past, and using the science of soil microbiology and plant ecology, effective organic alternatives are being developed.
It’s not always easy to break tradition and try something new, but more and more consumers are adopting these smart, scientifically-based, and forward-thinking options without having to compromise the beauty of their property. Hybrid, organically-based methods can produce the same results as traditional methods, but in ways that are safer for your family and the world.
