Organic Lawn Care Services
Ready to go chemical free?
- is your lawn addicted to petroleum-based synthetic chemicals?
- is your lawn “organic by neglect” and the weeds get worse every year?
- do you have children or pets, or just care about the environment we live in?
- schools and park districts are banning or restricting the use of lawn chemicals on local and national levels
- YOU can make a difference!
Our multi-step system holistically builds your soil, developing a food web of beneficial microorganisms. This is how grass and plants naturally derive their nutrients to grow strong, fight diseases and insects. By improving the physical condition of your soil and turf grass with organic lawn care methods, you’ll enjoy a lawn that is thick, lush and more able to compete with weeds. It is a process that is not for everyone, but with patience and science on your side, we can help you commit to a safer lawn.
You are steps away from a lush and safe organic lawn:
- soil test & lawn analysis
Determines the customized Back-to-Nature Lawn Care plan appropriate for your yard as well as a way to monitor the effectiveness of our program.
- spring preliminary treatment
One application of corn gluten-based product to help prevent weed seeds from germinating and provide an initial boost of nitrogen.
- Earth’s Original™ Organic Soil Feeding
Three applications of our compost tea brewed at our facility in Brookfield, Illinois. Compost tea feeds your soil and this rejuvenated soil ecology feeds your lawn (and gardens).
- organic top dressing
High-quality compost mixed with grass seed improves the physical condition of your soil, increases water retention, adds nutrients and thickens your lawn. Great for bare spots which invite weed seeds to germinate.
- core aeration (2 per year)
Fluff up the soil of high-traffic areas to improve water, nutrient and air circulation vital for deep root development and a loose soil that weeds dislike. Core aeration is one of the most important techniques to employ in an organic lawn care program.
In extreme cases, a comprehensive treatment program is required to overhaul your lawn to be chemical-free, naturally healthy and 100% organic.
Other organic maintenance practices available:
- smart mowing
setting the mower blade at 3 inches maintains a taller grass blade. This increases food production for stronger roots and helps shade out weeds. Clippings are integrated into the lawn to recycle nutrients and add beneficial organic matter.
stuff your lawn with grass seed laid on a carpet of organic compost to crowd out weeds and improve soil health. This is most effective in spring, and it fills the bare spots that weed seeds exploit.
- smart watering
Lawns only need 1inch of water per week. Updates on the home page of the digrightin website inform you of recent rainfall amounts
- home composting
As easy as recycling; learn how to capture lawn, garden and kitchen organic matter with affordable composting systems.
