Organic Bob provides REAL organic lawn care – that means a lot more than just NOT using chemicals on your lawn – it means changing your soil to favor what you want to grow there so it WANTS to grow there and other things don’t.
Fertilizer – We use only certified organic fertilizers and only 2 applications per year.
Top Dressing – Because most lawns are depleted of organic matter, we apply a thin layer of quality organic matter over existing grass. This provides food and habitat for beneficial soil microbes.
Over-seeding – We use a proprietary blend of low maintenance grass seed.
Aerated Compost Tea (ACT) is a concentrated solution of beneficial aerobic soil microorganisms. Regular applications of ACT keeps soil healthy, which in turn, suppresses diseases, improves soil water capacity, fertility, and air/oxygen capacity of soil. Weeds are a symptom of a deeper soil problem. Increased microbial activity will solve most weed causing soil problems. Weeds slowly fade away.
