Over the last few years, there has been an increased awareness of the benefits of buying organic foods such as fruits, vegetables, meats, and other kitchen staples, as opposed to eating genetically modified or chemically treated foods. Much in the same way we can be healthier by choosing organic foods, commercial properties can become healthier and stronger with organic lawn care. Organic lawn care is simply performing lawn maintenance services such as fertilization and herbicide applications using organic materials instead of harsh chemicals. In today’s blog post, we look at three reasons why your commercial property needs organic lawn care.
A commercial property that has been chemically treated experiences far more instances of poor grass health and invasive weed growth. The soil becomes more compromised over time, and is unable to naturally support grass, plants, or trees without chemical intervention. Organic lawn care allows the native soil to recover and replenish essential minerals and nutrients, thus creating a healthier environment for grass, plants, flowers, and trees to thrive. In addition, the healthier soil that comes from organic lawn care allows plants and grass to better withstand diseases, invasive insects, and noxious weed growth.
There is a growing concern among Americans about the quality and safety of drinking water, freshwater resources, and our oceans and rivers. It is becoming a greater priority to protect and preserve these precious and valuable resources, and this starts with ensuring we do not have chemically treated soil that could contaminate our water resources. In addition to harming nearby water resources, these chemicals could also threaten the health and safety of nearby individuals, animals, and healthy plants. Organic herbicides and fertilizers do not pose the same threat to people, animals, rivers, lakes, oceans, or underground aquifers.
Lower Maintenance Costs
Finally, another important benefit that comes from organic lawn care is that it ultimately lowers overall commercial property maintenance costs. A healthy, organically treated commercial property is far more likely to remain stable, vibrant, and beautiful throughout the year. This means commercial property owners face fewer instances of having to remove and replace turf, plants, or shade trees because of poor soil health.
