Our custom blend of organic fertilizers and soil builders provide the soil with micro-biology and nutrients it naturally needs. This starts the cycle of promoting the growth of organic matter and microorganisms, and leads to a more lush, resilient lawn that’s able to hold up over time.
While inorganic, chemical fertilizers claim some of the same temporary gains, the environmental and economic costs of using such products far outweigh the benefits. Chemical pesticides only help your lawn superficially and is short-lived. These lawns need more chemicals to keep them looking green. Below the grass blades, these products are depleting healthy soil of nutrients, polluting groundwater, and, if left to fester, causing serious harm to our families and communities.
According to the EPA, compared to chemical treatments, non-chemical methods are generally effective for longer periods of time. They are less likely to create hardy pest populations that develop the ability to resist pesticides. And many non-chemical pest controls can be used with fewer safeguards, because they are generally thought to pose virtually no hazards to human health or the environment.
Organic lawn care systems conserve the Earth’s limited resources. At Clean Air Lawn Care Portland, our organic fertilizers and weed control programs help determine what’s right for your San Antonio lawn based on practical measures, such as anticipated rainfall and other climate considerations unique to your region. When your grass needs watering, our elective irrigation consulting will ensure you’ll reach the correct areas of your lawn with minimal runoff and use the water meant for the grass on the grass.
Our organic lawn care services also encourages recycling as much as possible. Grass clippings from your lawn may be reused as mulch, composted on site, or removed to an organic waste recycling center. Grass clippings left on the lawn are another great way to organically get some extra nitrogen to sink back into your soil.
Organic lawn care treatments demand the discipline necessary to ensure essential microorganisms will thrive in the soil. Such soil self-improvement plans require a diet of organic fertilizers, which are comprised of nutrients that encourage long term root growth. For only in concert with a well-balanced soil, will grassroots reach their maximum depth, therefore retaining vital water for longer periods of time. Subsequently, you’re left with a heartier lawn that’s nearly self-sustaining, and far less dependent on your sprinkler system.
Chemical pesticides kill off the beneficial organisms that fight for us in the soil. As you may expect, pests find chemically-saturated lawns appealing and thrive in these ecosystems.
The best way to eradicate pests from your lawn is to make the environment unattractive to them. By creating a healthy, ecological coalition in the soil, you’ll ally yourself to the favorable microorganisms, insects and plants that keep your lawn healthy, all while discouraging pests.
