non toxic environmentRecently, we had a chance to connect with Diane Carpinone at Non Toxic 
Dover to discuss all things related to lawn care. You see, she is not only a 
client of ours, she is helping to spearhead some really exciting initiatives at 
Non Toxic Dover.

Read the latest press on our collaboration HERE.

In talking with her at her home, both of us got pretty excited thinking about the future. People are starting to become aware that what we do to our soil matters. Towns are starting to take notice. Organizations are starting to invest in organic landscape programs. People are starting to ask questions about their landscapers.

I think one of the biggest misconceptions out there is that people tend to think of organic folks as “granola” people without a whole lot of science to back things up. It is not true. Organic is science at its best. We use a microscope to analyze your soil and build treatment plans that reintroduce biological processes back into lawns and gardens.

For people like Diana, her fight is similar to ours except she is taking it right to town managers and civil agencies. She is educating towns and the general public about many of the same things we do with our clients. Together, I think we can do great things, because what can possibly be more important than a non toxic environment for your family? Learn more about Non Toxic Dover by clicking HERE.

organic lawn careGet started today with an organic lawn care program from Heidelberg Farms. Why? Well, it all starts from the roots up, which is the concept behind our organic lawn care program, From the Roots Up!

We believe in the power of the soil and the science that supports the responsible management of its use.

Soil is not just inert matter. It is alive with all kinds of biological organisms and systems that depend on one another.

These systems do not operate in a silo either. They connect with our food, the ecosystem itself. Birds, butterflies, humans, wildlife—we all depend on the soil!

When companies or people use chemicals to treat their lawns, the damage that is done to the soil will take years to repair. Yes, you have a green lawn, but you also have chemicals that get onto your clothes, your hands and in the mouths of your children. Yes, kids sticks their fingers in their mouths all the time, so when they are rolling around that beautiful green lawn, they are picking up those chemicals, too.

Organic lawn care does not mean that you cannot have a wonderful yard. It just means it will take a little time. Think about your return on your investment, though. You will get a green, lush yard and garden—and you will have worked with nature to achieve that sustainable result.

You will not need to water your yard and garden all the time either, as a well-functioning lawn and garden is self-sustaining. It is using biology to feed itself. Water is of course important, but you won’t need to run around with your sprinkler like you would for a chemically treated lawn.
