CHEMICAL VS ORGANIC LAWN CARE
NEED 100 word intro to organic vs chemical lawn care:
As professionals we think its important to outline the differences between organic and chemical lawn care. We are extremely passionate about your landscape and
CHEMICAL LAWN CARE
ORGANIC LAWN CARE
What Chemical-Based Lawn, Tree & Shrub Care Practitioners Do Not Want You To Know!
A healthy growing environment for turf … absolutely will not cause that turf to develop a destructive layer of dead roots and stems … which is called thatch.
Chemically-dependent plants are weak plants.
Weak plants (turf, trees and shrubs) ATTRACTdisease and insect problems.
Improperly nurtured and balanced soils CAUSE “weeds” to grow.
Reacting to all these “problems” with mechanical devices, and multitudinous sprays of this and that chemical … earn millions of dollars each week during the season.
Obviously, keeping these facts from the public is a prime concern of many.
Exposing these facts, and then offering materials, programs and procedures to address these moneymaking “problems,” has been the intent of Plant Solutions, and many other pioneers, during the last twenty-five years.
It is the public – who is demanding less chemical usage … that is forcing professionals to take another look … a very hard look, at what Plant Solutions and others have been doing for decades. It is public opinion that is forcing this revolution … which isn’t a revolution at all, because the organic-approach to landscape care was well entrenched prior to WW II.
However, now the public’s demand for better-looking landscapes, better than what we expected sixty years ago, and maintained at a reasonable cost, has required Plant Solutions to develop advanced procedures to meet the public’s demand. This we have done, and continue to improve as we learn and discover more about Natural Systems and our proper role as caretakers.
If this interests you, then maybe you will join us as we “convert” one landscape at a time from chemical-based programs to more natural, organic-based programs of care.
It’s better for both the wallet, and the environment!
ORGANIC LAWN CARE MISSION STATEMENT
We acknowledge the superiority of “Natural Systems” over the artificial stimulation methods employed by traditional plant care practitioners.
We strive to work in concert with, not in contradiction of, Nature’s own system of “checks & balances”.
We believe in building plant health from the soil up, not from the plant down. Experience has taught us that, over time, healthy soils will produce healthy plants.
We don’t believe that your landscape suffers from a deficiency of “chemicals.” Thus, we seek to avoid having your landscape develop chemical dependencies. We use chemical controls only as a last resort, like medicines, to remedy problems.
Our customers benefit from programs based upon “bio-dynamic” principles. Utilizing our unique, proprietary products to recharge natural plant and soil cycles and systems, we can enhance the beneficial natural soil biology that supports plant health.
Our valued customers benefit from our “Organic Principles & Procedures” developed from forty years of experience in Organic Plant Health Care and soil care with monetary savings for extra services, the elimination of costly mechanical de-thatching and aerating practices, and the need for less water.
The Organic Approach provides peace of mind for our customers while their landscapes are being cared for in a more environmentally sensitive manner.
To the continued good of the environment, and to the benefit of our customers…we will continue to work, and cooperate and share with other researchers whose work will advance pesticide-free horticultural practices.
