The Need for Sustainable Lawn Care Practices
More fertilizer and pesticides are applied per sq. ft. on home lawns than are applied per sq ft on agriculture fields. Sadly, much of the actual synthetic fertilizer that is applied isn’t used by your grass, some of it goes into the air and our waterways.
In the lawn care industry, it is often common to apply unnecessary amounts of pesticides. If you had a cut on your finger, you wouldn’t put band-aids all over your entire body, you’d put one over the cut on your finger. Well, most lawn care companies are spraying the entire lawn with weed killer when there are only a few weeds that need to be sprayed.
Blanket spraying is unnecessary and, in our opinion, unethical. Unfortunately, by using so many harsh pesticides, many companies are causing risks to the health of their clients and their pets, their employees, and local wildlife like pollinators and birds.
There are very few companies in Fort Wayne offering any viable, sustainable alternatives – until now…

Our organic soil conditioner and sulfur treatments are integral to maintaining your yard in a sustainable, eco-friendly way.
Organic Soil Conditioner
During this visit, we will apply composted organic matter that promotes healthy topsoil formation. As we build the soil, we help promote healthy growing conditions for your grass to thrive. This happens over time through our Sustainable Lawn Care programs that include organic soil conditioner visits.
We apply organic sulfur to the yard to aid in optimal soil pH. The soils in our area are naturally high in pH from our limestone bedrock and clay-based soils. With naturally high soil pH, the grass is inhibited from taking up available nutrients, which can cause yellowing. The application of sulfur helps unlock nutrients so your grass can “eat,” and your yard naturally becomes greener as a result.
