Organic Lawn Care

Demand grows for organic lawn care, organic landscaping and organic land maintenance

Growing public awareness of the hazards associated with the use of pesticides, plus new legislation mandating least toxic and non-toxic alternatives, are fueling a new opportunity forproperty owners who want good asthetics combined with professional organic land and organic lawn care. Many people are becoming more interested in using landscape tactics that do not harm the earth. In addition to being great for the environment, organic landscaping can also provide benefits for your health.

The lawn is most often the most visible part of a landscape. It seems as though many people thing it is necessary to use a great deal of chemicals to keep pests from ruining the lawn or to help the lawn grow well. The truth, however, is that by actively caring for the soil in your lawn as well as the grass, you can create a healthier lawn. This can be done in a number of ways that do not involve chemicals that can be harmful to the environment and to your health.

One of these ways is the use of organic fertilizer. There are compositions of fertilizer made entirely of organic materials. These fertilizers do cost more up front, but as they are used regularly reduce long run costs. The decrease the need for chemicals that can become expensive (and if applied wrong can actually damage you lawn more than help it), and they do not need to be applied as often. So, the cost often evens out eventually, as you have to apply the synthetic fertilizer much more often.

Another way to take care of the lawn is to use practices that promote healthy soil and better grass roots. One of these practices, which Hines & Zaffarese Landscaping feels is quite beneficial, is a process called aeration. Aeration relieves soil compaction by punching holes in the ground. This helps by making the soil easier to go through. This means that the roots have more room to go deeper, and organisms, like earthworms, that actually help the health of your grass, have more room to move about and make their homes. This results in naturally healthy grass that withstands pests better and keeps weeds out on its own.


Sod & Seed Lawns

When we talk about a house having "curb appeal," few things contribute as much as a beautiful home lawn.

Grass seed is the starting place of any great lawn. Grass seed comes in many different varieties, including warm and cool season grasses. Warm season seed types include St. Augustine, Bermuda grass, centipede and zoysia. Cool season grasses include Kentucky bluegrass, ryegrass, and fescue. Planting a mixture of grass types, rather than just one, is a solid strategy for ensuring that you develop an even, robust lawn.

Sod is basically grass that is connected to the soil beneath it by its roots. It is grown and cultivated by professional landscapers and landscaping companies. Using sod is an alternative to planting a lawn from scratch using seed, think if it as a pre-fab lawn. Sod is often sold in large, rolled bundles where it can be quickly laid down.

Most people are surprised to hear that fall planting is better than spring. For one thing, spring plantings face much more weed competition. But more importantly, as soon as spring-planted grass is up and growing, it has to face the rigors of summer heat and dry weather. Fall planted grasses have both the fall season and spring season to grow and mature before facing summer heat.

Tree Pruning & Removal

Winter Tree Pruning

Winter is a great time for tree pruning. Without leaves we can more easily see the structure of the tree and determine which branches should stay, be trimmed or be removed. Pruning while dormant is also the healthiest for the tree because temperatures and infection rates are at their lowest.

Tree removal. After a thorough assessment, if it is deemed necessary, we can provide tree removal services as well.
