A perfect lawn would be one that takes care of itself- no watering, weedkiller, fertilizer or other help necessary. This can seem impossible when you’re looking at your lawn. But an organic lawn, and one specially designed to be drought resistant, can come awfully close. Using a mix of grasses can provide better ground cover, as well as more resistance to weed invasion. A lawn that is frequently fertilized and watered has shallower roots, and is less able to defend itself from pests. By using fewer chemicals, you’re actually growing grass that is healthier.
Organic soil also contains a greater amount of nutrients, since chemical fertilizers supply nutrients without affecting soil structure. Making sure that your grass and your plantings are the right ones for our area can make all the difference, giving you ground cover and tolerating local weather and soil conditions more easily. Once you’ve established an organic lawn, it requires less mowing, less frequent watering, and provides you with a beautiful lush carpet for your yard.
