Why Organic Lawn Care?
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.
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?
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.
“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.”
