Naturally Safe Treatments that Will Keep Your Outdoor Home Beautiful and Thriving

The lawn in your outdoor home is unlike anything that would grow naturally in the wild. In the wild, wide open areas contain a variety of grasses, plants and wildflowers. In a manicured environment, this type of growth would be considered weeds. Manicured lawns are pleasant to the eye and can be soft like a carpet, but they also take more love and care to maintain than grasses and plants that grow in the wild.

Our natural fertilizers and low impact approach to lawn care promotes healthy turf and soil so grasses, plants and flowers can bloom and thrive. We use minimal amounts of weed and insect control products to prevent damage to your lawn and spot spray weeds for highly effective yet minimally invasive weed and pest control. Further, our fertilizers will not leach nutrients into fragile ecosystems or pollute groundwater.

At Natural Tree & Lawn Care, we are well rooted in lawn care. Our certified arborists and full service approach to lawn care will ensure your lawn stays green and healthy for years to come. Our services include:

Lawn Care Tips that Will Keep Your Outdoor Home Green and Healthy

Soil Testing & Analysis

Soil pH plays an important role in nutrient availability for all plants.  In New England, our soil tends to be naturally acidic. However, if it becomes to acidic, key minerals will become less available. At Natural Tree & Lawn Care, we take several random soil samples from your outdoor home and analyze their combined mix at the University of Massachusetts Soil Laboratory in Amherst to ensure unbiased results. Our certified arborists review the results and use the recommendations of the Soil Lab to correct the pH in your soil and customize your fertilization program for optimal results.

Aeration

Lawn aeration is a great technique for improving root systems and reducing compact turf. At Natural Tree & Lawn Care, we use a mechanical core aerator to open up your lawn and apply soil plugs (to reduce the occurrence of thatch) as well as fertilizer and other treatments deep in the soil. Aeration is performed in mid-summer or early fall to prevent weeds from germinating in the soil.

Lime

Lime helps to increase pH level of soil, which is naturally acidic in New England. Lime raises the pH to neutral, where more nutrients are readily available. At Natural Tree & Lawn Care, our certified arborists apply lime annually or on an as needed basis to maintain good pH levels that encourage nutrients in your outdoor home.

Fertilization

At Natural Tree & Lawn Care, we use a naturally based, biological and conventional fertilizer with two forms of nitrogen. One form of nitrogen is soluble for quicker green up. The other form is insoluble, and slowly releases nitrogen over time. Our fertilizer also contains beneficial bacteria that supports and sustains soil fertility.

Weed Control

Timely spot applications of broadleaf weed control minimizes the amount of herbicide used on your lawn. Spot applications effectively control most of the weeds with less exposure to you and your family. Other organic approaches are also available depending upon your needs.

Overseeding

If you have a lot of weeds such as crabgrass, it is probably because you have thin turf. Bare spots in the soil offer an area for weeds to germinate and can easily be improved by overseeding. 

Irrigation

Without question, proper watering is a key element to maintaining a healthy lawn. Ideally, your lawn should receive about 1 inch of water every week over 2-3 applications. Watering your lawn in the early morning will avoid evaporation and allow the leaf blades to dry during the day. If you do not have an irrigation system or are unable irrigate because of water restrictions, ask one of our certified arborists us about our drought control treatment.

Cutting & Mulching

Good mowing practices will also improve the appearance of your lawn. We recommend maintaining a blade height between 2-3½ inches without cutting more than 1/3 of the total height in 1 mowing event. Maintaining longer grass will develop a deeper root system and have more leaf area to photosynthesize. Mulching grass clippings back into the lawn will return nutrients which would otherwise be lost if the clippings were bagged.
