Your Lawn Isn’t Dead; It’s Just Sleeping!

It won’t be long before the first sheaths of frost appear on the grass, but just because winter is coming (shoutout to all your GoT fans) doesn’t mean your lawn is going into hibernation.

winterEven after the frost sets in, your grass isn’t dead; it’s merely dormant, lying in wait to spring once more. Which makes it all the more important that you have a lawn care program that prepares your yard for the long haul—not in months, but years—and why it’s never too early to plan ahead.

You can read some of our fall lawn-care tips here. Once you’ve tackled all the DIY you can handle, give Heidelberg Farms a call. We’ll help you get a jumpstart on next year by testing your soil and finding out what makes it tick.

The Heidelberg Method

How, you ask? We fully examine your soil’s one-of-a-kind biodiversity, from which we’re able to build unique compost mixtures to help your lawn grow and thrive.

Once the ground is thawed, we’ll work with your lawn to help it achieve its full potential. Our aim is to repopulate, feed and stimulate diverse soil organisms. These organisms help regulate every aspect of plant health, including soil structure and fertility, residue decomposition, nutrient cycling, and even disease suppression.

New England winters might be long and harsh, but we also enjoy some of the most uniquely beautiful plant life anywhere. Encouraging that biodiversity not only makes your lawn look great; it strengthens it. That means fewer visits from us, and more green in your pocket.

Reading the Fine Print

Using an organic lawn care approach is about more than just eliminating harsh chemicals (although those are definitely very, very bad). What the conventional companies don’t want you to know is that even the more “benign” ingredients in pesticides, like metabolites, can become harmful once they interact with water, air, or soil.

Next to your home, your yard is one of your most important investments. The healthier it is, the more it’s allowed to thrive, the easier you’ll sleep—and so will your lawn!
