Organic Lawn Care Programs by BeeSafe®

The Greenlawn BeeSafe® Lawn Care Program creates healthy lawns without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides as control products.

We have found that if we fertilize appropriately, improve the soil and use natural products that minimize stress we can create beautiful, healthy lawns without all of those harsh products that tend to sterilize the soil from which your grass grows.

A soil that is alive with biological activity creates the perfect environment for consistent growth and color, resistance to disease, a deeper and stronger root system and incredible resistance to pests and environmental extremes like heat and drought. In addition to our chemical free BeeSafe lawn care program we also offer many additional services to help your lawn and landscape look its best.

Our Greenlawn's BeeSafe® Program is exactly what your family needs when it comes to a healthy lawn and a healthy peace of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are your products safe to use around children and pets?
Yes. Our products are made from natural products and are non-toxic. There is no re-entry time after application of our products. Your children and pets can go on the lawn immediately after the treatment is done.

Q. How are your products applied?
All of our products are applied using typical lawn care application equipment. We will use a sprayer for the liquid products and a spreader for the granular ones.

Q. Does it take longer for your products to work?
It does take a little bit longer, but not a great deal longer. The reason synthetic chemical fertilizers that are applied by chemical lawn care companies work so quickly is because they are water-soluble and dissolve and leach immediately. The downside to this is that up 60% of the product ends up “off target” and inevitably in ground and surface water. Q. How do I control weeds and disease without chemicals? How about insects?
Our program includes products that will protect your lawns from pests. However, you will find that, if you adhere to proper practices when it comes to mowing and watering, weeds will become less of a problem. Also, as you improve the health and pH of your soil with our products, the grass will be thicker and stronger creating an environment that is much less hospitable for weed growth. A little tolerance is necessary too. What is really wrong with a few dandelions or patches of clover?

As for disease activity, you will immediately see a decrease in nuisance diseases that result from overuse of synthetic chemicals and are a side effect of a sterile soil environment. Healthy soil creates healthy plants! We can offer suggestions for insect control, grubs, etc., without hurting earthworms and other beneficial insects. You will also find that as your soil improves, and your turf becomes healthier, the need for controls decreases significantly.

Q. Is it more expensive to use organics?
Nope, usually not. The BeeSafe line of products and applications are organics based on science not organics based on lots and lots of fertilizer. We’ve found that in most cases the BeeSafe program is pretty competitive with even the national chemical lawn care services.

Q. How much should I water?
It sounds silly but you should only water as much as your lawn needs and it’s difficult to put an exact amount on “how much” is enough. When your lawn begins to show drought stress you should water it deeply. As long as it is raining occasionally, you don’t need to water your lawn. When it gets hot and dry you should try to water you lawn a few times a week. Infrequently and deeply is ALWAYS better than everyday for ten minutes per zone. If your lawn begins to go dormant from lack of water, it’s okay! It’s a natural defense mechanism to stay alive and it will come back as healthy as ever when sufficient water is available. You will find that by using organic products you will see a HUGE reduction in the amount of water needed to keep your lawn green.

Q. Do your products smell bad?
Some of products have a slight earthy odor, but it is not noticeable after the treatment has been applied.

Q. Do I need to do a soil test every year?
We will perform a soil pH test on your lawn every single spring. More extensive soil testing may be necessary occasionally but is not a requirement.
