We’re the experts on keeping your lawn beautiful organically. Our Milford organic weed control program is one that has been developed over years. We’ve learned the secret to maintaining a healthy, weed-free lawn. We’ll let you in on the secret: The key to a lush, green and weed-free lawn is healthy grass. Yes, it’s that simple! You don’t need the toxic chemicals and unsafe weed killers the other lawn care companies are trying to sell you. The truth is, those treatments cause more harm than good to your lawn — and the pets, people and wildlife that use it.
Our Milford organic weed control approach is built on the fact that a healthy lawn will naturally have very few weeds. That’s because the vigorous grass effectively crowds out existing weeds, and grows so lush that new weed seeds are unable to find a foothold in the soil.
Our organic weed control program creates a lawn that is lush and takes up all the space so weeds have difficulty growing. This includes mowing at the correct height and frequency, vertical edging, using organic fertilizers and soil builders, and encouraging proper watering. Your lawn isn’t covered by a bubble and weed seeds can travel in many ways so weeds will occasionally pop up. We offer selective weed control products that are more environmentally friendly than most traditional herbicides. Additionally, we chose to spot spray the active weeds instead of carpet bombing your entire lawn to apply less. We’re not scared of hard work so we’ll even hand pull your weeds if that is your preference!
For weeds growing in beds, joints in driveways, and other places that aren’t your lawn, we use natural and OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) listed non-selective herbicides.
What is a selective weed killer? When a herbicide is “selective,” that means that it will only kill weeds, and not the grass around it. Non-selective herbicides kill most of whatever they come in contact with and are used in areas like flower beds, areas covered with mulch or pine straw, cracks in concrete, etc.
Our organic lawn care system has been proven effective, ecologically sound, and safe for pets, children and wildlife. For over a decade, we’ve continually tweaked and improved our weed control approach to ensure that your lawn grows green, lush and weed-free. We’ve found that the following three-part approach yields the best results, and we’re confident that you’ll see an improvement in your lawn thanks to these tried-and-true organic weed control practices.
