Why Should I Go Natural?

Fertilizer is an addiction that weakens your lawn and makes it dependent on artificial chemicals to grow

Natural lawns are healthier, stronger, and promote more biodiversity than their chemical counterparts

Natural lawns prevent erosion, keeping your lawn greener naturally

You can treat your lawn like Augusta treats their fairways by only feeding when needed. 

Fertilizer chemicals runoff into waterways causing green-goop algae blooms that are dangerous to wildlife and humans alike.

Save cash and time, avoid costly synthetic fertilizers, and enjoy lush green lawns.

Take the pledge to be part of the solution!



Organic lawn care practices are essential in eliminating the reliance and use of inorganic compounds commonly used in conventional (chemical) lawn care. The reliance on chemical (non-organic) compounds contribute greatly to pollution run-off into our water bodies and repel, reduce and or eliminate vital soil organisms responsible for generating natural soil fertility and resiliency. The organic philosophy is the foundation to promoting soil life and biodiversity.  Practicing good organic lawn care cultural practices for home lawn maintenance which include using only organic compounds reduces the risk of promoting and maintaining  a localized toxic environment.              Bruce Wenning, Horticulturist, the Country Club.
