Microbes in soil play an essential roll in maintaining a safe and healthy organic lawn. Microbial soil restoration is the process of re-establishing and maintaining the required biology of healthy soil. Unfortunately, when traditional applicators spray synthetic chemicals to kill common pest, fungus, and disease; beneficial microbes essential to soil structure, water holding capacity, and organic plant nutrient interaction are eliminated. All plants including common grasses, flowers, gardens and trees can reach full potential with a healthy soil containing billions of microorganisms. Happy lawns and healthy plants are an important foundation for all landscape installations.
Building Drought-Resistant Soil
- Lawns utilizing microbial diversity have a reduced the amount of fertilizer necessary during the course of a season. Healthy soil reduces the possibly of disease and therefore resulting in the elimination of pesticide and fungicide use. Important beneficial fungal components build the water and nutrient holding capacity of the soil, increase root growth and reduce surface water run off.
- Save water, reduce mowing frequency, and enjoy a chemical free lawn.
The demand for organic lawn care and sustainable alternatives to the current chemical nutrient, pesticide, fungicide applications is rapidly growing. A simple question for a property owner is “How important is the health and safety of your children and pets.” The Accelerated Organics program involves a systematic approach rather than a product based cycle. Beginning with a proper understanding of your soil, then using organic products, proper lawn care, and landscape practices to support essential microbial populations.
