Our own Jeff Gerbert has been certified in organic turf and landscaping by Osborne Organics, LLC. The program integrates three concepts: the use of natural, organic products as dictated by soil testing; an understanding of the soil and its biomass; and sound cultural practices. This is fundamentally different from the conventional product approach to turf management and provides landscape professionals with a holistic, natural alternative. This certification is a result of in-depth trainings of landscape contractors in natural turf methods with the goal of assisting in growing the knowledge base in the field of natural turf management.
Gerbert & Sons is now certified to design, install and maintain turf and landscape management programs that transform a conventional approach to a natural one as well as manage the period of time known as the transition period. One of the unique capabilities of this certification is the ability to discuss the benefits of healthy turf and landscape transition with homeowners, municipal and private sector grounds staff, and more.
