is an Organic Lawn Important?
Lawns are places of absolute beauty. The lush color
of green, the sweet smell and aroma, the feel of the
blades rubbing against our feet in the summer, our
lawns are our places of rest and comfort, our childrens
playground, and our pets saving grace. Lawns are also
integral to the life of many beneficial insects and
soil microbes. In each handful of soil there are over
1 billion living organisms. Grass is truly amazing
and quite resilient to everyday stresses. Grass is
common to almost every household front and back, and
sweeps across America like a giant green carpet.
So why are chemicals not the answer?
Recent research has shown the toxic effects everyday
lawn chemicals have on our health and our environment.
It is said that over 67 million pounds of pesticides
are used on lawns each year, which has a drastically
negative impact on all living things. Chemicals, Pesticides,
Herbicides, and Fungicides all have one thing in common,
the root word "cide" (which means to kill).
These toxic products kill all of the beneficial biology
in our soils, keeping our grass in a constant state
Although it may look green and healthy on the outside,
in reality grass becomes chemically dependent, extremely
unbalanced, and is a constant hazard to be on or around.
Through a return to a more natural system, one which
promotes life and biodiversity, we are able to have
truly beautiful lawns, worry free!
