Understanding Natural Lawn Care

When we talk about natural lawn care, we’re focusing on methods that nurture your lawn without harsh chemicals. These practices are good for the planet and safe for your family and pets. At Borst Landscape & Design, we believe in the power of organic-based lawn care to create lush, healthy lawns that are beautiful and environmentally friendly.


The Basics of Organic Lawn Care

At the heart of natural lawn care are three key principles: soil health, the right grass selection, and the use of organic fertilizers.

  • Soil Health: A healthy lawn starts with healthy soil. Organic matter is crucial because it supports a vibrant ecosystem beneath your lawn, full of beneficial microorganisms.
  • Right Grass Selection: Choosing the right type of grass for your area’s climate and soil can reduce the need for water, fertilizer, and pesticides.
  • Organic Fertilizers: Unlike synthetic options, organic fertilizers release nutrients slowly, helping to nourish your lawn more naturally.


Enhancing Your Lawn Naturally

To make your lawn shine and stay healthy, let’s dive into some simple yet powerful ingredients:

  • Compost: Imagine giving your soil a power-packed meal, boosting its health and loading it with beneficial organisms. This is the essence of composting. It enriches your lawn, making it a robust environment for your grass to thrive in.
  • Plant-based Fertilizers: Derived from natural sources such as alfalfa, cottonseed, and soybean meal, these fertilizers nourish your lawn without harsh chemicals. They provide essential nutrients, fostering a green, lively yard.
  • Seaweed: Consider seaweed as a multivitamin for your lawn. Packed with nutrients, it aids your grass in becoming more resilient and vigorous. Seaweed is an excellent choice for promoting overall lawn health and strength.
  • Rock Phosphate: This natural mineral rock is a powerhouse of phosphorus, a critical element for root development and flower growth. It supports your plants in establishing a strong foundation and blooming beautifully.


At Borst Landscape & Design, we understand that while the appeal of DIY organic lawn care might seem tempting, it’s often a complex and time-consuming endeavor. Achieving that perfect balance of beauty and environmental friendliness requires a deep understanding of soil health, plant needs, and eco-friendly pest control, which can be challenging to get right on your first try—or even your tenth. That’s why we encourage you to take advantage of our bespoke natural lawn care services.


Our team of experts is equipped with the knowledge and experience to create a stunning, sustainable lawn without the guesswork and endless trials. With Borst, you can enjoy a beautiful lawn that’s good for the earth, safe for your family, and a testament to your commitment to green living. Let us help you achieve the lawn of your dreams with ease and confidence.

Implementing Your Natural Lawn Care Program

Borst Landscape & Design offers comprehensive organic landscaping services to foster the development of a natural lawn care program. Our approach is rooted in our extensive knowledge and a firm commitment to environmental stewardship. By focusing on sustainable, healthy lawn practices, we ensure that your lawn not only looks beautiful but is also beneficial for the environment.


Soil Nourishment and Health

Compost Application: Starting with compost is key. It enriches the soil, introducing beneficial microorganisms that help break down organic matter, releasing nutrients that your lawn needs to thrive. We recommend integrating compost into your soil at least once a year to maintain richness and health.


Soil Amendment: Not all soils are created equal. Some may need a helping hand to achieve the ideal balance for lawn growth. We utilize natural soil amendments to adjust pH levels, improve water retention, and enhance soil structure. A simple soil test can guide us in tailoring the perfect amendment strategy for your lawn.


Healthy Soil Tips: Regularly adding organic matter and avoiding compaction by aerating your lawn can significantly improve soil health. Healthy soil is the foundation of a vibrant, resilient lawn.


Choosing and Maintaining the Right Grass

Grass Selection: Picking the right type of grass for your region’s climate and your yard’s specific conditions is crucial. We’ll help you select the best varieties that naturally thrive in our area, reducing the need for excessive water, fertilizer, and pest control.


Mowing to Proper Length: Cutting your grass to the right height can significantly impact its health and appearance. We suggest mowing high to encourage deep root growth, which helps grass withstand drought and reduces weed invasion.


Watering Practices: Overwatering can be just as harmful as under-watering. We advocate for deep, infrequent watering that encourages grassroots to stretch down into the soil. Early morning watering reduces evaporation and disease risk, making every drop count.


Organic Fertilization and Weed Control

Natural Approaches: Our focus is on using organic methods to feed lawns and control weeds. By incorporating natural fertilizers, we enrich the soil and grass without the use of harsh chemicals. This process ensures slow and steady nourishment, supporting lush and healthy lawn growth over time.


Weed Management: A healthy, dense lawn is the best weed deterrent, but some stubborn invaders may need direct attention. We use organic herbicides sparingly and only on targeted areas, ensuring your lawn stays lush and clean without compromising the environment.


Organic Pest Solutions: Pests can be a challenge, but with our organic pest control methods, you can keep them at bay safely. From beneficial nematodes to natural insecticidal soaps, we choose the safest, most effective treatments to protect your lawn and your loved ones.

Pest and Disease Management

Fighting pests and diseases doesn’t mean you have to compromise on safety. Organic pest control is at the heart of our natural lawn care services. We focus on prevention first, fostering a healthy lawn that is naturally more resistant to pests and diseases. When intervention is needed, we use safe, organic products that are effective against pests but gentle on the environment, your family, and your pets.

  • Safe for pets and family: Our methods and products ensure that your loved ones can enjoy the lawn immediately after application, without the worry of harmful chemicals.
  • Disease prevention: A healthy lawn is your best defense. We promote strong, resilient grass that can stand up to common diseases, reducing the need for treatments.


Water Conservation and Lawn Aesthetics

A lush lawn doesn’t have to mean high water bills or strain on water resources. We advocate for water conservation through smart landscaping practices and innovative solutions like low-voltage landscape lighting to enhance your lawn’s beauty without unnecessary water use.

  • Water less: By selecting the right type of grass and employing efficient watering techniques, we help you minimize water use. This approach not only saves water but also encourages deeper root growth, making your lawn more drought-resistant.
  • Solar landscape lighting: Illuminate your garden and lawn areas with solar lighting. It’s an eco-friendly way to beautify your outdoor spaces, providing safety and ambiance without increasing your energy footprint.
