Why Go Organic?

 

Here at Borst Landscaping & Design, we offer an organic and sustainable approach to lawn care that delivers consistently satisfying results. However, organic lawn care does much more than simply providing a healthier and greener lawn. Choosing organic over synthetic lawn care methods can be beneficial in other very important ways that you may not be able to identify as easily. Here are just some of the reasons why organic lawn care is your best option.

 

Cost

Although organic fertilizer can initially cost more than synthetic fertilizer, going organic will actually save you money in the long run. Organic lawn care methods promote natural, healthy soil and root development, which reduces the need for herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides later on because healthy plants can effectively fight off pests and diseases on their own. This means that ongoing organic lawn treatments will ultimately cost you less than synthetic alternatives.

 

Environmental Benefits

Though forgoing the use of synthetic chemicals on your lawn will reduce your overall cost, it will also provide significant environmental benefits. Synthetic chemicals used in lawn care can be washed away and end up polluting storm water systems, or even groundwater used in wells. Synthetic pesticides also kill off many beneficial insects such as ladybugs, which typically prey on pests that can damage your lawn and your plants. Using organic pesticides can eliminate these pests and keep your drinking water unpolluted.

 

Health

At Borst we pride ourselves on a lawn care approach that is safe for your entire family, including your children and pets. This means avoiding the use of chemicals that can potentially cause health issues, particularly in children. Borst uses only natural ingredients in our lawn treatments, which have no adverse health effects.

 

As you can see, organic treatments are truly the best way to keep your lawn, your family, and the environment healthy. Contact Borst today and make your way to a healthier landscape!
