Organic Lawn Care Program

If you would like a lush, green lawn, but if you don’t want to think twice about walking around barefoot, or allowing your pets to run around in the yard, Horizon Landscape’s Organic Lawn Care Program is for you. 

Horizon Landscape has been providing landscaping and lawn care in New Jersey for over 45 years. As we’ve grown and expanded, we’ve added services and evolved our offerings to meet our clients’ requests, enhance the beauty and safety of their properties, and improve our environmental stewardship. One service that accomplishes all of these goals is our all-natural premium organic lawn care program. 

What is organic lawn care?

Organic lawn care is all about cultivating healthy soil and turfgrass without the use of traditional synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Horizon’s organic program allows you to grow and maintain your lawn with less of an impact on the environment, your family, and your pets. 

Benefits of an Organic Lawn Care Program 

There are many reasons to consider organic lawn care in New Jersey. The benefits of a natural, organic lawn care program include:

  • Eliminating chemicals entering our ecosystem
  • Reducing energy use, water use, and other material inputs
  • Building organic matter in the soil, improving soil health, and creating healthy plants
  • Improving root growth
  • Reducing drought stress
  • Strengthening a lawn’s natural defense system against insects, pests, and diseases 

Horizon Landscape’s Organic Lawn Care Program is an effective, sustainable approach to turf care, yet it’s important to know organic lawn care is not a quick fix. Because we don’t use traditional “weed & feed” products, improving the quality of your soil and the health of your lawn is a multiyear process. You may not always get the quick green up you’re used to seeing after a synthetic fertilizer application. You may see weeds crop up from time to time. A natural, healthy lawn requires patience, but it’s well worth the wait. 

Environmentally Friendly Organic Lawn Care Program

Like with our traditional Lawn Care & Fertilization Program, Horizon Landscape’s Organic Lawn Care Program begins with an analysis of the soil and evaluation of the lawn’s appearance. Our licensed and certified lawn care technicians are experienced and knowledgeable about both traditional and organic turf care methods and will take your lawn’s needs into consideration. 

If you choose to go the natural route, our standard organic program includes six turf care applications to promote a sustainable and healthy lawn. 

Horizon’s 6-step organic lawn care program applications include: 

  1. Early Spring Wake-Up Feeding
  2. Late Spring Natural Feeding 
  3. Early Summer Soil Reconditioning 
  4. Late Summer Organics 
  5. Fall Prep I: Turf and Soil Strengthener 
  6. Late Fall Prep II: Turf and Soil Strengthener 

Organic lawn care products and practices

The basis of Horizon’s organic lawn care program are natural compounds like poultry manure, biosolids, soil microorganisms and carbon-based soil amendments for a healthier soil. We’ve been using organic and microbial products for many years in our tree and shrub care services with excellent results.

Weed control: Our organic lawn care program does not include traditional weed control; however, our knowledgeable, veteran applicators use techniques to minimize weed growth without selective herbicide applications. 

Disease control: Our technicians will monitor disease activity throughout the lawn care season. We’ll advise you on implementing cultural practices — proper mowing heights, watering and feedings — that minimize disease-causing pathogens. 

Insect control: If our organic lawn care professionals detect insect activity that requires treatment, where applicable we’ll use an organic product to remediate the issue. 

If a pest concern does arise requiring treatment with a traditional product and methods, we can, with client consent, treat the affected areas as needed.

Ready to ‘go green’ with your lawn care?

Are you ready to commit to a holistic, environmentally friendly approach to lawn care? Have you “gone green” in other areas of your life and you’re wondering how to make the switch to organic lawn care? Are you looking to reduce or do away with synthetic pesticides and fertilizers?

Many homeowners are concerned about their carbon footprint and desire to be greener in every aspect of their daily lives. Integrating organic lawn care into your total lawn care and landscape maintenance program is one way to be a better steward of the environment and to dress the earth in a manner that pleases God, not just man.
