The recurring theme in organics is the maintaining of a healthy, living soil. The main objective of our lawn care program is to get your lawn off drugs and provide a living, biologically active soil. Organic lawn care provides a green lawn that is safer. We grow sod on our own production farm located in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.more
Maintaining the environment and a healthy ecosystem are both necessities for the survival and flourishing of humanity and all other organisms. For many years we have been told that the way to keep our lawns healthy and free from weeds is to treat them with herbicides and apply high nitrogen fertilizers. The downside to this approach is that the lawn has become completely dependent on these inputs to maintain a healthy appearance. Organic lawn care provides a green lawn for children and pets and a great return on investment.more
