Our recommended schedule is for us treat your yard seven times over the course of the year. At varying times of the year, lawns need different elements and products applied to them. We pride ourselves in finding the right balance for your yard by designing the correct year round application schedule.
Yes and no. At ABC, we believe we have a responsibility to be good stewards of our environment. That means the use of as few chemical-based products as possible.
We believe that the best lawn is a truly healthy lawn - one that's has good soil nutrients and one where the health of the turf is the ultimate goal. So, the products we use - more often than not - are organic, non-chemical compounds that are designed to promote overall lawn health.
It's important to note that although we use products rich in nutrients, that doesn't mean there will always be a quick "green-up." Many chemical-based products commonly available at the big box stores are designed for a quick green-up, but don't necessarily strive for overall, long-term health of the yard. It's kind of like treating the symptom of a problem without actually treating the problem.
Borrowing a term from health care - we take a "holistic" approach, designed to benefit the overall health of your lawn, resulting in an attractive yard in an environmentally conscientious manner.
Fixing an unhealthy looking lawn requires three primary methods: watering, mowing, & improving the health of the turf.
At ABC Home & Commercial Services, we can create a service plan to include both turf enrichment and mowing, with advice on a schedule for watering. A properly maintained lawn can be the pride of your landscaping, and we have the know-how and experience to help yours excel.
At ABC, we choose our products to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We use fast release and slow release enrichment products along with natural and synthetic organic nitrogen sources that will provide your lawn with a steady growth rate and consistent color throughout the growing season.
Holganix is a 100% organic plant probiotic that balances the soil's ecosystem, building strong roots and growing healthier, more resilient plants. Instead of chemicals, Holganix uses an abundant and diverse list of beneficial microorganisms, microbial food sources and organic additives that turn a small amount of fertilizer into the most effective plant treatment available.
Traditional chemical fertilizers contain phosphorus, nitrates and pesticides. These chemical compounds make their way to lakes, streams, ponds and bays where they produce an overabundance of algae and plankton. This creates an imbalance that depletes precious oxygen that wildlife needs to survive.
Reducing the use of chemical fertilizers can help eliminate the dead ones in our waters, where marine life can no longer survive. When you use Holganix, you’re reducing the use of nitrates and phosphates by as much as 90%, and helping to reduce the impact of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides on our environment.
We pride ourselves in being a full-service lawn care company. If you’d like to add fertilization to your existing lawn mowing, or if you’re interested in both, give us a call and we’ll set up a free consultation to figure out a plan that works for you and your budget.
