Mike’s Organic Lawns
Becoming an organic lawn service is more than just switching to organic fertilizers and products; organic lawn care is a complete system of management practices which work together to create a beautiful and pest resistant lawn.
Safe Weed Control
Traditional blanket applications of dangerous pesticides over an entire lawn are a thing of the past. Our organic fertilizer program is part of an approach designed to minimize weed pressure through proper turf management without the use of harmful herbicides and pesticides.
Fall Lawn Aeration
Annual fall core aeration should be the basis of any lawn program in Nebraska. The clay soil that is commonly found in eastern Nebraska is prone to compaction which will lead to poor water infiltration, shallow roots and poor turf quality.
Lawn Care Tips and Events
Spring Maintenance Tip-Avoid Aggressive Cultivation
The warm weather has many of us excited to start improving on our home landscapes. Many tasks and projects can be completed this time of year. However, be careful with aggressive lawn cultivation such as dethatching and aerating. While the soils are warming, the plants are still dehydrated and fragile. Let the plants rehydrate and begin to actively regrow before starting aggressive management practices. The grass will quickly recover from dethatching and aeration once it beings to grow in early to mid-April . Use this great weather to get caught up on other outdoor projects. Be patient, you’ll be baling hay from your lawn soon. Courtesy of Bill Kreuser, Assistant Professor and Extension Turfgrass Specialist. firstname.lastname@example.org
