NaturaLawn of America devotes itself to caring for both lawns and the environment, eschewing harmful chemicals in favor of eco-conscious products. Natural, organic-based, and biodegradable products are administered to create healthy outdoor spaces that repel intrusive pests such as fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and aging golf-course greens searching for a place to retire.
Technicians determine the individual needs of each lawn to develop custom treatment plans, taking soil tests and enhancing lawns with zero-phosphorus fertilizers, seeding and aeration treatments, or regimens that focus on balancing nitrogen, potassium, and sulfur. The pest-control professionals also fight off invasive species, applying milky-spore grub control—which uses a naturally occurring bacteria—to evict japanese beetles and european chafers. The lawn liaisons deter Lyme disease–carrying creatures with Tick Ranger and send moles on their way with biodegradable repellents or inside jobs to infiltrate the neighbor’s vegetable garden.
