Organic Turf

Yes, this program is 100% Organic! This program is designed to grow a green, thick, lush lawn that is safe for you, your children, your beloved pets and my technicians. The turf will be fertilized monthly, March-October, ensuring a constant food supply. The turf will be overseeded in the fall. Overseeding is the best form of weed control because it creates competition that weeds cannot handle. The crew will spread 8lbs of seed per 1000sqft, this is double what University of Maryland recommends. We will then aerate the lawn in the fall. Aeration ensures greater seed-to-soil contact, which increases seed germination. The turf will later be top-dressed with compost in the same period as aeration.

Your soil is a living ecosystem and the compost provides organic matter which soil microbes feed on. Compost is black gold that insures the results of this program, and you can never have too much. The soil will be amended with adequate nutrients to balance the soil chemistry for your particular lawn, then a soil test will be conducted to know exactly what your soil needs. This is so we can find out if the soil is deficient in any important nutrients, because that will not be a place where grass will want to grow. Weeds are messengers telling us what is deficient in the soil or what problems your soil may have. Most times we just “shoot the messenger” by weeding our gardens, but you cannot IGNORE the underlying problem.

This program will address those issues, creating an environment that grass will want to grow in. For example, crabgrass loves compacted and calcium poor soils, so if you relieve the compaction and increase your calcium levels, the soil will be a less desirable place for crabgrass to grow. This program uses science and science takes time. The lawn and soil ecosystem will get better and better over time.
