Choosing to treat your lawn the organic way comes with a variety of benefits, and we’d like to share four of the main ones with you today.

  1. Environmentally-friendly – When you refrain from applying excessive amounts of synthetic chemicals on your lawn, you know that you’re not contributing to the pollution of our natural waterways. Any water that comes into our yards is carried away one way or another. Whether it finds its way into a storm drain or simply seeps into surrounding groundwater, water carries with it any chemicals it has recently come in contact with – and many of those can be harmful to the environment. Studies show that around 60% of the nitrogen found in many commercial fertilizers finds its way into the natural environment.
  2. Cost-effective – With organic lawn care in Massachusetts, the cost of maintaining a pristine lawn reduces over time. This is because organic methods promote a healthier, more natural regimen for your lawn to rely on, reducing the need for more and more herbicides and pesticides. Your lawn also won’t need as much fungicide or similar treatments when you go organic, which further decreases the need for and cost of overall lawn care.
  3. Your own health –The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences are still unclear as to exactly how non-organic herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers affect the human body. Evidence has, however, linked increases in dizziness, fatigue and other neurological ailments with exposure to certain commonly used lawn care chemicals and shown that children, especially, may react harmfully to such chemicals. Organic treatments are made from natural ingredients that aren’t harmful to humans.
  4. Enriched soil – The Soil Association reports that soil treated using organic treatments resulted in increased amounts of nutrients and minerals vital to the overall health of a landscape. The pH levels of soil treated with organic lawn care receive nutrients that keep it stable while increasing microbial activity as well. This all results in a lush, healthy lawn that naturally repels insects and is easier to maintain.
