A Good Year for Organic Lawn Care

It has been a good year for organic lawn care. Over the years, we’ve been dissed a few times by the chemical lawn care guys, but now we’re becoming mainstream.

I have always been fascinated by the trillions of microscopic organisms busily inhabiting and working in our bodies and in the soil.

Organic Soil Solutions had a fantastic 2011 season. Our crew helped make some of the lushest organic lawns yet. Here’s what some of our customers had to say: “All is fine with our lawn…the end-of-summer slice seeding was very effective, and we now have a green, lush lawn.” -Kathy C. “I just was planting my

We are in the midst of an organic movement – organic food, organic farms, organic lotions, organic bedding, organic everything! But, little do people know that everything organic must start with healthy, organic soil. An article from The New Ecologist called “Top 10 Reasons To Buy Organic Products For Your Home” goes on to state,

A Little Wild in the Landscape is a Beautiful Thing

A little wild in the landscape is a beautiful thing. The birds need a place to nestle, the squirrels to rustle and the bunnies to hide. I need an area to throw some sticks and yard debris. My young son was helping me in a yard of lollipop trees and immaculate swales of mulch a

Invest in Soil For a Healthy Organic Lawn

I spoke to an irrigation guy today. When people build a new house, he suggests investing in soil rather than irrigation systems. With a foot of good top soil you probably won’t need to add much water. Most new homes have a few inches of topsoil and need watering more often than we would like,
