Across the world, people are making resolutions to eat better, exercise more, and get back on track to a healthy lifestyle. But personal resolutions aren’t the only thing that will make a difference this year. As you organize your life, take a moment to consider how you can impact the world around you. If you want to encourage a healthy environment this year, here are 3 tips for organic lawn care:
- Choosing the Right Turfgrass. By installing sod that’s durable, high quality, and designed to flourish in your climate, you can drastically reduce the amount of water, fertilizer, and lawn care that goes into cultivating your lawn. Try our fescue grass for landscaping in the cooler months or Tifway 419 Bermuda sod for golf courses. All our sods are heat and drought resistant, giving you lush, healthy grass without wasting resources.
- Lose the chemicals. Instead of introducing harsh chemicals into your environment, explore the world of natural insect deterrents and biopesticides. Once you learn what works for your yard, organic weed and pest control are often just as effective as weed killers and pesticides. Removing chemicals from your landscape also ensures the safety of pets, limits contamination from runoff, and often reduces allergy symptoms.
- Natural nutrients. If you plan ahead, you can eliminate the need for applying chemical fertilizers to your landscape. Leave lawn clippings on your grass to provide natural potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus to your sod. Compost also makes a nutrient-rich natural fertilizer.
