Organic Sustainable Lawn Care Program

Here’s a typical plan of action I have been recommending for my clients to begin an organic sustainable lawn care program.

Step One: Start with a Soil Test.  “one size” definitely does NOT fit all lawns.  A soil test lets you know what you are starting with and what you need for a specific location, soil type and plants.

Step Two: Heavy Rack or Aerate Lawn.  Loosen up the soil and grass.  Compacted soil is a breeding ground for broadleaf invasive.

Step Three: Spread Compost 1/4 of compost or a compost tea.

Step Four: Overseed and follow results of soil test.  The soil test will advise on organic fertilizers and pH amendments.
