Organic Lawn Services


We offer a variety of Organic Lawncare services to care for your lawn. The products we utilize are all-natural and derived from plant, animal, and mineral sources. Prices based on square footage of lawn.

PREMIUM ORGANIC PROGRAM

This program combines the power of organic fertilization with the weed management properties of DDG (dried distillers grains). Our organic fertilizer is composted poultry manure (4-4-2), and is OMRI listed safe for organic farms. Our fertilizer breaks down slowly to provide steady plant and root growth. DDG is a soil amendment that works to prevent new weed seed growth as a pre-emergent, but has no affect on established weeds. DDG also provides all-natural fertilization. It is a 100% natural by-product of Ethanol production. The Premium Organic Program includes four (4) annual treatments.

PROGRAM | APPLICATION SCHEDULE

#1 | Weed Pre-Emergent + Fertilizer | applied March-April

#2 | Organic Composted Fertilizer | applied May-June

#3 | Weed Pre-Emergent + Fertilizer | applied August-September

#4 | Organic Composted Fertilizer | applied October-November

GRUB PREVENT + CONTROL

To prevent and control grub infestations we offer a Beneficial Nematode treatment. These naturally occurring microscopic worms consume grub, flea, and tick larvae. We spray the Nematodes in a compost tea solution over the entire lawn, which also helps to enrich your soil. We provide this service during the first lawn application in Spring (March-April). This is a once yearly treatment.

For lawns experiencing an acute grub, flea, tick, or insect infestation we offer CedarCure spray treatment. This all-natural treatment works immediately to control an outbreak, but does not offer future prevention. This treatment can be applied at any time during the season.

FIESTA® | NATURAL DANDELION CONTROL

This natural broad-leaf weed control is an annual spot spray treatment for Dandelions. The active ingredient is Iron chelate (FeHEDTA). For optimal weed control results we apply two treatments (Spring and early Summer), as well as an optional third treatment (late Summer).

Fiesta is registered with the Ohio EPA as an herbicide. The EPA makes no distinction between chemical and all-natural weed killers, they are all classified as herbicides. We are required by law to leave a pesticide application sign in your lawn after each treatment, which you may remove after 24 hours. We are also required to leave a product information sheet on your doorknob. Fiesta Natural Dandelion Control is water resistant three hours after application. Lawns are safe to walk on as soon as the product is dry (approximately 2-3 hours).

NATURAL DANDELION CONTROL | SCHEDULE

#1 | applied April to early May

#2 | applied May to June

#3 | applied August to early September

AERATION

This service can help improve compacted soil conditions. Aeration assists water and nutrient penetration into the soil. We provide this service in the Fall (October-November) using an aerator machine. If you schedule Overseeding and Aeration, both services will be done at the same time in late Summer (September)

OVERSEEDING

Lawns with sparse grass or bare spots are perfect targets for weeds. We use a slit seeder to add grass seed to help create a thicker more weed resistant lawn. We overseed with Turf Type Tall Fescue grass seed, the best performer in Central Ohio weather conditions. This service is provided in late Summer. If you schedule Overseeding and Aeration, both services will be done at the same time in late Summer (September).

SOIL TESTING

A sample of your soil will be sent to a lab and tested for pH and nutrient levels. You will be sent specific all-natural amendment recommendations to help balance soil conditions, as needed. This service can be done at anytime during the season. ($40.00)
