A Safe, Natural Way to Build Beautiful Lawns

There are many advantages to switching to organic lawn fertilizers. It's safer for your children & pets, the environment, and you will build a healthier, green lawn in the process.

After many years in the landscaping business, I did not like the negative feedback I was getting from concerned homeowners who were worried about the chemicals sprayed on their lawns. I knew it was time to build beautiful lawns that were safe for children and pets who like to play in the grass.

We spent many years researching different products that result in green lawns without hurting the environment. Personally I saw the difference in the color of my lawn within 2 days.

So I decided it was time to make a change. We found an all natural product that strengthens the lawn and controls most insects such as ants, fleas, ticks, chinch bugs and grubs while significantly decreasing the amount of chemicals.

Like with any product the results were better the second year we used it. The first year, you are actually weaning the grass off the high nitrogen granular synthetic fertilizer. With synthetic fertilizers, the roots of the grass are close to the surface of the lawn.

When you switch to organic, this forces the grass to develop deeper roots. That means grass is more tolerant to drought and also not so susceptible to disease.

The grass becomes healthier and develops more natural defenses. In fact, we found that natural fertilizer also helps to grow grass in shady areas where they could not grow grass before.

Most importantly patience is required to build a strong lawn. We believe it is truly worth it when one can reduce the use of synthetic fertilizer and still have a green, healthy lawn.

Sorry Frank.....I will pass on your info. Wayne; FYI, I don't do powerwashing. My service is Steam not water and really not appropriate in cases like siding, decks etc where powerwashing IS a better solution. Thanks for the info so I can let people like myself, w/Dogs & Kids, know about Jager Landscaping.

Well, what is the magic product? I would love to know. I presonally tried just using organic fertilizer last year. Then I ended up having a lawn of crab grass. This year, I have used a foul smelling pesticide soup called crab glass preventer. I think it was called Scotts Phase I. I barely have crab glass this year. I just did not know what else to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
