Why Organic Lawn Care?
Purelawn Organic Lawncare Programs drastically reduce or eliminate lawn pesticides in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas. Why have your current lawncare company spraying unnecessary pesticides all over your grass? Our green lawn care programs are safer for children, pets, and the environment.
What is Organic Lawn Care?
Organic Lawn Care – when you hear this term, what do you think? What you should think is healthy, green, lush, natural, and better. This is a safer, more sustainable way of doing lawn care.
Does it work? Companies are doing it all over the United States and Canada. There are companies across the U.S., and locally in Columbus, Cleveland, and Akron there is Good Nature Organic Lawn Care. In fact, 100% of Toronto is pesticide-free by law. Now, in the Dayton and Cincinnati areas, there is PureLawn.
The fact is PureLawn has lawn fertilizers that are made with food-grade material. Many of these contain the same nutrients as synthetic fertilizers. The nutrients are released in a controlled manner, feed the grass from the soil up with steady growth, and result in a healthy green lawn.
In the last 10 years, research has proven this is a more effective method of lawn care. It is tough for companies who have been doing traditional lawn care to transition because they have all the old equipment and a vested interest in the chemical based model. We aren’t encumbered by these old chemical assets or the accompanying mindset that lawn pesticides are harmless. This is a new, better way of caring for your lawn.
Why spend 10-20% more on organic food, and then let someone spray indiscriminate pesticides right outside your door?
How Does Organic Lawn Care Work?
Organic lawn care feeds the soil and turf, whereas chemical lawn care companies primarily feed the turf, through the tips of the grass. By using chemicals, traditional lawn care companies are drugging your lawn to get performance, and PureLawn is the withdrawal program. Organic fertilizers feed organic matter to beneficial microorganisms and the root system in your soil. Instead of depleting the biological activity, which is crucial for a healthy soil, PureLawn is increasing the activity.
A strong, lush lawn is only as good as its base, the soil. Healthy soil is driven by the organic activity that PureLawn will help you develop. Using straight synthetic fertilizers creates lawns that are addicted to high dosages of nitrogen and more prone to stresses.
“Of 30 commonly used lawn pesticides, 19 have studies pointing toward carcinogens, 13 are linked with birth defects, 21 with reproductive effects, 15 with neurotoxicity, 26 with liver or kidney damage, 27 are sensitizers and/or irritants, and 11 have the potential to disrupt the endocrine (hormonal) system.”
“A study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute finds home and garden pesticide use can increase the risk of childhood leukemia by almost seven times.”
“Studies find that dogs exposed to herbicide-treated lawns and gardens can double their chance of developing canine lymphoma and may increase the risk of bladder cancer in certain breeds by four to seven times.”
