Most people assume that plants need two things to survive: sunlight and water. But in doing so, they tend to forget the importance of fertilization. You can think of fertilization as providing the food your grass needs to stay looking lush and green year after year.
What sets us apart from other lawn care companies in the Severn, MD area is in our name: organic. In recent years, more and more people have begun paying attention to how much organic food they consume. You should give the same care to your lawn by hiring Organic Lawns to fertilize your lawn with 100% natural, custom-blended fertilizers.
If you’ve ever been much of a gardener, you know just how obnoxious and pesky weeds can be. You should be just as concerned with weeds popping up in your lawn as you are when they pop up in your garden bed. Here are a few common lawn weeds in the Severn, MD area:
These plants may look pretty in their own way, but you don’t want them in your lawn. Some of them are non-native and harmful to Maryland’s ecology. If left unchecked, they will quickly take over your lawn.
Here at Organic Lawns, we use a combination of pre-emergent and post-emergent products to stop weeds before they pop up, and to keep them from coming back if they already have.
We want our lawns to be hospitable to friendly wildlife, but not to harmful pests like fleas or ticks. Just as weeds are the pests of the plant world, we should try to keep these bugs far away from our pets and children.
Many people feel as though insecticides are inherently full of harmful chemicals. This isn’t the case with the products we use to control ticks and fleas. The active ingredient in our insect control products is simply cedar oil. Cedar oil comes from nature, so you shouldn’t worry about how it impacts the environment. We’re sure you’ll be impressed with how remarkably effective it is at keeping these insects under control.
Nothing can rejuvenate a lawn quite like aeration and seeding. Unlike other lawn care treatments, the visual benefits from aeration and seeding are immediate and obvious. Simply put, this is the very best thing you can do for the lawn of your Severn, MD home.
In case you aren’t aware, aeration refers to the act of pulling out cores from your lawn to expose the root zone of the grass. This helps nutrients, sunlight, and water, reach the roots of the grass as quickly as possible; that’s everything you need for a perfectly green lawn.
Have you ever wondered what makes gold courses look so perfect? Part of the secret is in core aeration as opposed to spike aeration. Using spikes to aerate the lawn actually ends up compacting the soil, which will only make things worse. That’s why we stick to core aeration.
Of course, you can’t have grass without seeds. We uphold extremely high standards in the quality of the grass seed we use. We are proud of the high germination rate and complete lack of weed seeds present in the grass seed we use. You won’t be disappointed if you hire us to aerate and seed your Severn, MD lawn!
