A couple of common questions we are asked about our annual lawn care treatment or lawn service programs (Five Step) is it pet friendly and is it environmental friendly. Industry wide turf control manufactures and their products have come under intense regulation and evaluation. There has been a heightened awareness of environmental protection and environmental sustainability. Over the past five year years the amount of regulation on the turf care industry and their products has increased dramatically. Eco-friendly and pet-friendly products are now the norm rather than a special order requirement. For us the lawn service providers we only use products that fall within those categories unless we are dealing with a specialize treatment program. These lawn treatment programs where more intense chemicals may be needed are usually only used in very small areas of the lawn. Advances in turf control products have vastly improved in just the past five years where improved lawn care products are available to us across the board.
Another major environmental concern is soil erosion. In the U.S., nearly 6 billion tons of soil wash or blow away each year. Turfgrass is the biggest defense against soil erosion because it binds the soil more effectively than any other plant. Each grass has an extensive root system and up to 90% of the weight of grass is in its roots. Healthy grass areas absorb rainfall six times more effectively than a wheat field and four times better than a hay field (Maryland Agricultural Statistics Service). A proper annual lawn care program along with proper lawn cutting techniques will help improve your lawns overall health and appearance.
