Aeration helps alleviate compaction and allows nutrients, air and water to move readily through the soil and reach the root zone.  Pelletized compost will increase the soils' ability to hold nutrients and retain water over time.  Core aeration is best done in the fall, and in conjunction with seeding and/or topdressing of bulk compost.

Grub Management

Five to six different beetle species make up the grub complex, and some treatments are only effective on certain species.  Identification and monitoring are important for a successful management program.  Treatments can be targeted towards species present if needed.  Organic treatments include pathogenic bacteria as well as beneficial nematodes and essential oils.   For more difficult grub infestations we use Acelypryn insecticide.

Similar to our Comprehensive Organic Program, our hybrid program works to correct and condition soil to create a healthy, thriving lawn, but employs methods from both organic and traditional lawn programs.  Applications include our exclusive living, biological SafeTea™ with specialized inoculants, organic soil conditioners, root builders, and special slow release organic fertilizers, as well as a NON-ORGANIC crabgrass pre-emergent in the spring, and spot treatments for weeds as needed during the season, focusing on organic methods first. 

A strong emphasis is placed on cultural practices and over-seeding, as these two methods together are the best way to reduce and eliminate the need for any control products whether organic or not.  Dense, healthy turf is the best defense against weeds and insect attacks.  With spot treatments and judicious use of weed control, environmental and health impacts are reduced.

The program consists of 6 application visits throughout the season, starting around mid-April (weather pending) and every 4-5 weeks through the fall.  The spring visit will include an application of crabgrass pre-emergent.  Each visit will apply fertilizer and/or soil amendments, as well as monitor for pests and treat as needed.  We emphasize proper cultural practices during the season for the most success in organic care for your lawn.  At each visit we will leave recommendations for care, and we strongly encourage you to coordinate services with your landscaping company and irrigation specialist for proper care.  Seeding should be done each fall (either by homeowner or hired) to keep lawn thick and improve grass variety as well as density.

Lawn Care Programs

Our proactive approach results in healthy landscapes by:


  • Rehabilitating tired, stressed and lifeless soils using  100% organic fertilizers and SafeTea™ Compost Teas
  • Encouraging the return of natural microbial populations such as beneficial bacteria and fungi to improve natural nutrient cycling and retention
  • Enhancing the natural health and resistance to pests


The soil is the key to unlocking your landscapes’ natural potential to be healthy and strong. We start all our programs with a comprehensive soil chemistry analysis; to determine essentially the blueprint of your soil.  Understanding your soil allows for targeted treatments addressing specific needs, saving time and money in wasted or unnecessary applications.  

Our Comprehensive Organic Lawn Care Program works to correct and condition soil to create a healthy, thriving lawn naturally. We use only 100% organic fertilizers to provide the essential nutrients and minerals your lawn requires to be healthy and strong throughout the growing season.  Applications include our exclusive living, biological SafeTea™ with specialized inoculants, organic soil conditioners, root builders, and special slow release organic fertilizers.

This program is designed to balance the soil for the needs of grass plants not weeds and pests. Pest problems are monitored and treatments are applied if necessary, using organic control products.  Our trained professionals will work with you on proper cultural practices, an important aspect of any lawn care program, as well as monitoring throughout the season for pest damage and make recommendations for treatment as necessary.

The program consists of 6 application visits throughout the season, starting around mid-April (weather pending) and every 4-5 weeks through the fall.  Each visit will apply fertilizer and/or soil amendments, as well as monitor for pests and treat as needed.  We emphasize proper cultural practices during the season for the most success in organic care for your lawn.  At each visit we will leave recommendations for care, and we strongly encourage you to coordinate services with your landscaping company and irrigation specialist for proper care.  Seeding should be done each fall (either by homeowner or hired) to keep lawn thick and improve grass variety as well as density.
