HYBRID ORGANIC PROGRAM
Similar to our Comprehensive Organic Program, our hybrid program works to correct and condition soil to create a healthy, thriving lawn, but employs methods from both organic and traditional lawn programs. Applications include our exclusive living, biological SafeTea™ with specific inoculants, organic soil conditioners, root builders, and special slow release organic fertilizers, as well as NON-ORGANIC crabgrass pre-emergent in the spring, and spot treatments for weeds as needed during the season, focusing on organic methods first. A strong emphasis is placed on cultural practices and over-seeding, as these two methods together are the best way to reduce and eliminate the need for any control products whether organic or not. Dense, healthy turf is the best defense against weeds and insect attacks. With spot treatments and judicious use of weed control, environmental and health impacts are reduced. The program consists of 6 application visits throughout the season, starting around mid-April (weather pending) and every 4-5 weeks through the fall. The spring visit will include an application of crabgrass pre-emergent. Each visit will apply fertilizer and/or soil amendments, as well as monitor for pests and treat as needed. We emphasize proper cultural practices during the season for the most success in organic care for your lawn. At each visit, we will leave recommendations for care, and we strongly encourage you to coordinate services with your landscaping company and irrigation specialist for proper care. Seeding should be done each fall (either by homeowner or hired) to keep lawn thick and improve grass variety as well as density.
