The next best thing to organic lawn care is a Turf Management program from Trimmers Landscaping.
At Trimmers Landscaping, our lawn fertilization services are different then many lawn care service in that we advocate an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to improving the health and vigor of turf grass. While this is not “organic lawn care,” boosting turf vigor through cultural practices like top-dressing and irrigation management reduces the need for excessive chemicals to control weeds and insects.
Our five-step lawn care program includes:
- Nitrogen Boost Fertilizer/Crabgrass Preventer
- Fertilizer/Broadleaf Weed Control
- Grub Control/Fertilizer
- Surface Insect Control/Fertilizer
- Fertilizer and Pellet Lime Application
Frustrated homeowners often can’t seem to get the results they want from a big-box 4-step lawn care programs. There are reasons for this:
Timing. Effective lawn care strategies are very time-sensitive. Putting grub control down before grubs are feeding – or crabgrass control after the seed is germinated – is a waste of time, money and chemical.
Product. Professional lawn care services have a greater variety of controls available to them for insects and weeds. We also do this every day – not waiting for the weekend to be able to put down lawn fertilizer.
Training. Anybody applying commercial fertilizers must be licensed by the state of New Hampshire. A licensed pesticide applicator is trained to recognize hard-to-diagnose lawn problems like funguses. You have to first know what’s wrong with the lawn before you can treat it.
What about organic lawn care? Here at Trimmers, we do provide true organic lawn care services for a limited number of clients. These programs, however are more costly than conventional lawn care, and you have to live with a certain percentage of weeds and less-than-perfect turf grass.
