Today there is a growing concern among environmentally-conscious homeowners regarding the chemicals being used to treat their lawns. But now, rather than blanketing our lawns with harmful chemicals, there is a healthy alternative...Good Nature Organic Lawn Care.
Here's more information from Rodale about the dangers of using lawn chemicals around your pets. And if that's not enough, here are a few more reasons to avoid pesticides. Finally, here is a .pdf file with great information about how Children and Pesticides do NOT mix!
The good news is that you don't need the chemicals!
You've heard the saying, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is". That goes for lawn care as well. Take the junk mail ad that boasts, "Get your first lawn treatment for only $29.95". But what are you getting for that price?
What you get is a yard full of chemicals that stimulate rapid grass growth. But, this rapid growth comes at the expense of root growth so your lawn is now more susceptible to drought stress, disease, and grub problems.
This is when that $29.95 lawn treatment starts to multiply. Now you've got bugs and diseases in your lawn. Don't worry; the chemical lawn care company can fix you right up with poisons to take care of all the bugs, and diseases. Of course, there will be an additional charge for that.
By caring for your lawn organically, over time you'll have fewer and fewer problems requiring less and less service...not more service! It all adds up. Organic lawn care is not only better for the environment, but it's better for your kids, it's better for your pets and over the long term, it's better for your wallet!
The negative effects of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides on our environment are well documented. Do you like seafood? Scientists tell us that, as a result of fertilizer pollution, there are now "dead zones" appearing in lakes and oceans around the world where no marine life is growing. Also, all animals are adversely impacted by synthetic chemicals used on lawns. In fact, it is estimated that 67 million birds are killed annually by pesticides.
Our Natural Fertilizers work with Nature...feeding and building the soil. Not against it...like synthetic fertilizers. Over time, you'll find that your soil and lawn become healthier.
Chemical lawn care companies tend to solve lawn problems by applying more and more chemicals on them. First, their chemicals encourage quick grass growth...which can make your lawn more susceptible to pest problems. Then they spray on more chemicals to solve the pest problems. In addition to killing the target pests, these chemical sprays can weaken or kill beneficial organisms. When the pests return, they find weakened grass and weakened predators. That's when the chemical companies apply even more chemicals. It's a never-ending cycle...and your poor lawn is the loser.
At Good Nature, we take the opposite approach. We work with nature to feed and condition your lawn to make it healthier and hardier...the natural way. We use organic materials to increase your lawn's natural defense system...making chemical treatments less necessary. If a pest does get out of hand, we will recommend a solution that is both biologically and environmentally responsible.
Here's a graphical depiction of what happens when you put down Synthetic Fertilizer compared to when you put down Organic Fertilizer.
“ We have been pleased by the professional service of the Good Nature staff, and have recommended them to our friends. ”
“ We love our front lawn and so do dogs, kids and their parents. ”
“ I also like supporting working with a locally owned and operated company that provides a personal touch. I have recommended Good Nature to my neighbors and friends and will continue to do so. ”
“ The question for me is NOT "Why would you use Good Nature?" The question is "Why wouldn't you?" ”
“ I hired Good Nature to take out my old lawn , prepare the soil, and then reseed it. Alec, the president, talked to me about the service. He pointed out that the grass seed available now is much more hardier and a better choice for my lawn. To try and mix that in with other grasses was never going to get the same results as starting from scratch. Good Nature also had a payment plan that made it very affordable. I was able to make a major investment and manage my finances. ”
