Organic Lawn Care

 

SavATree offers an effective, multi-pronged organic lawn care program to help cultivate a lush, green lawn in the most environmentally responsible way. SavATree’s organic program uses exclusive ingredients reviewed by the Organic Material Review Institute (OMRI) under the same standards as the production of organic foods.

Our comprehensive organic program utilizes products and practices that will:

  • Enhance turf vigor
  • Encourage root growth
  • Reduce excessive shoot growth
  • Improve color and density
  • Help turf prepare for and recover from summer stress
  • Stimulate root growth and health through the fall and winter

Soil Testing— the First Step Toward a Beautiful Lawn

The health of your turfgrass is directly related to the condition of your soil. Our organic lawn care program begins with a professional laboratory analysis of soil samples from your property. The soil analysis will reveal nutrient content, the percentage of organic matter present, and other characteristics such as pH levels. With that information in hand, we’ll design a custom lawn care program to obtain optimal results.

Organic Soil Enhancement

This treatment incorporates carbon rich organic matter designed to rebuild the organic profile of your soil, thus stimulating plant and root biomass. Humates increase available plant nutrients that are already in the soil resulting in greener turf.

Organic Lawn Fertilizers

We use OMRI-listed slow-release organic fertilizers for effective maintenance of your lawn. All treatments involve application of organic fertilizer and biostimulants that will strengthen roots, and provide carbohydrates and nutrients, ensuring a thicker, greener lawn.

Cultural Practices

Our organic lawn care program includes the essential implementation of smart cultural practices. Proper watering, seeding, aeration, and mowing all help build and maintain plant health.

  • Core Aeration. Lawn care equipment specialized for core aeration helps to alleviate soil compaction, reduce thatch build-up, and improve air movement and water penetration in the root zone. This service results in a stronger root system and much better-looking turf, and improves water conservation
  • Overseeding with grass varieties (often combined with core aeration) will improve the genetics of your lawn. An important aspect of maintaining a healthy, attractive, and environmentally-responsible landscape is populating it with grasses that are well-suited to your site and to local sun, rainfall, and temperature conditions. By doing so, you’ll help your lawn thrive with minimal intervention.
  • Mowing and watering. How and when you mow and water has a significant impact on the visual quality of your lawn. These practices vary by season, local conditions, and turf varieties. In general, allowing your grass to grow to the longest recommended height—usually around 3”—allows the soil to retain as much moisture as possible, encourages a deeper root system, maximizes the surface area of leaf blades for photosynthesis, and makes it harder for weeds to grow.

Generally, a property that is in reasonably good health—i.e., with fairly good soil conditions and free from infestations of insects, mites, diseases or weeds—will receive the most benefit from a completely organic program. If problems arise, we also offer targeted treatments that address the issue with a conservative spot treatment approach.
