Organic and Natural Lawn Care - What we mean by that
-Leave the clippings
-Add composted organic matter
Like the soils of natural grasslands, healthy lawn soils are deep and extremely high in organic matter and microbes. Most commercial lawn soils are high in sand, not organic matter, which is great for starting new turf but not for keeping it thriving. We increase organic matter in lawns by leaving the clippings, and even mulching in some leaves. This feeds the soil life, and once the microbes in your lawn are thriving, regular aerating or de-thatching is unnecessary. If you don't like to leave clippings, we recommend top-dressing with composted manure once a year. The higher the organic matter content, the less you have to water to keep it green.
