If you’re an environmentalist at heart, and you want to do your part to help the planet, there are definitely all-natural, green lawn care solutions available to meet your needs.
Key Factors in Green Lawn Care
There are very specific things that your lawn absolutely needs in order to thrive, regardless of the type of lawn care companies you consult. But with green lawn care, those factors become more important, even if they can be a bit more time-consuming.
- Nutrients. With green lawn care (or any lawn care for that matter), nutrients are absolutely essential for the health, color and composition of your lawn. But natural fertilizers are composed a little differently than synthetic ones. Natural fertilizers must contain carbon. The source of carbon may be organic, as in the case of manure, compost, or processed plant seeds such as soybeans and/or corn.
- Moisture. Irrigation is critical for the absorption of nutrients and moisture in the soil. It gives the grass strength and vigor.
- Attention. True, green lawn care uses no weed control; rather, the focus is on thickening the turfgrass so as to suffocate the weeds. While it is designed to prevent new weed growth, there’s not much it can do about existing weeds in your yard. So as your lawn slowly reaps the benefits of natural lawn care, it’s important that you are vigilant and aware of any changes such as weed growth in your lawn.
