As a homeowner, you know that there’s a lot more to maintaining your lawn than just mowing it frequently. A lush, green lawn requires fertilization as well as vigilance against weeds, fungi, and insect damage. The standard, accepted treatment would have you applying multiple chemical fertilizers and pesticides, year after year. Above and beyond the ecological concerns, you may find yourself wondering why your lawn isn’t looking all that much better.
Reconsider The Regiment
At Elements Lawn Care, we do things a little differently. Many standard fertilizers focus on the needs of the grass, however destroy a lot of the microbial activity in the soil. A more sterile soil means fewer microbes to break organic matter down into the nutrients that your grass needs. Using nothing but large amounts of chemical fertilizers are thus a short-term solution to a long-term problem.
What your lawn really needs is a fertilizer that injects bio-nutrients in the soil and encourages beneficial microbial activity. We use a product called Holganix, a liquid compost tea which revives dull or strained lawns and significantly reduces the amount of chemical fertilizer applications. It’s a hybrid approach that is good for your lawn and healthy for the environment.
Reduce Cost And Maintenance
As a new-millennium lawn care company, we embrace a holistic approach to lawn care. Along with organic based fertilizers, grub prevention, and reduced weed control products, we offer a number of other services that can reduce water use as well as maintenance costs over time. These include:
- Lawn Core Aeration. Is there an area of your yard that is flattened or compacted, like under a tire-swing or on a beaten path between your house and the garage? Lawn Core Aeration breaks up tightly-compacted dirt and tangled thatches to allow air, water, and nutrients back into the soil. Used throughout a yard, lawn core aeration encourages thicker, lusher grass growth.
- Lawn Over-seeding. Over-seeding does more than just fill in empty bare spots with drought- and pest-resistant grass seed. It thickens the turf, which gives weeds less opportunity to grow. Over time, it also reduces the amount of water you need to keep your lawn healthy as well as the amount of pesticides necessary to beat back the usual scourges.
- Responsible Pesticide Use. 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.
