Our Organic Lawn Treatment is Working Really Well

Posted by Sherry Rioux on September 10, 2009

Time for another update on our chemical free-lawn progress.

If you recall, I first wrote about this  in May of last year.  Our lawn had already been free of chemicals for almost two years but the poor thing was suffering.

Then, about 15 months ago, we hired Garden Holistics to come in and apply some organic magic.  I know many people are sceptical about organic solutions but I can tell you from experience, it’s worked really well for us.  Here is our lawn today:

It’s not perfect and yes, there are some weeds here and there but it’s healthy, soft, lush and happy like us.  Most communities have now followed Collingwood’s lead and banned the use of pesticides and lawn chemicals.  Alternatives exist and get better each year.  Now, when I see an artificially and perfect bright green lawn free of a single weed, I can’t help but think of how unhealthy it really is.  Organic has proven to be more than satisfactory without putting our health at risk.

    Hi Marg… saw the article about blogging in REM mag. Yours is great! I’ve been blogging since the beginning of this year and find it a great marketing strategy. It’s also so nice to be able to cut out the ever expensive print advertising for the internet. Your tips were very helpful and I can see why you blog is well travelled. I also love that you’re a green realtor. I too am a pro green gal and have moved that passion into my career with a new green website and marketing/branding things centered around the green movement. We’re a little slow to catch on in this part of the woods, but it’s coming (I live in Kelowna, BC… located in the Okanagan Valley in the interior of BC). People love the green idea but don’t want to pay for it yet. I’ve attached my links if you’re interested.
    Thanks again for your efforts and have a great day!
