Organic Lawn Problems

Fix Lawn Problems As Quickly As Possible

Reducing the use of chemical treatments and reducing environmental damage from these treatments is crucial in organic lawn care practices. So whenever lawn problems do occur, it's essential we get onto them and defeat them as quickly as possible before they get out of control and require serious chemical treatments to cure.

Whenever lawn problems do occur such as weeds, pests and lawn disease, they are most easily treated organically at their earliest stages when they are still rather weak.

And it's at this same early stage that if organic treatments do not work and we are forced to use chemical treatments, that we only need to use the chemical treatments in very small quantities in order to defeat whatever infestation we have in our lawns.

So time is of the essence whenever such problems occur, and it's only by having a good understanding of our lawns that we are able to follow these environmentally friendly lawn care practices.

This may sound complicated, but it really isn't, if you follow our 10 Minute Lawn Care routine which involves taking a few minutes every so often to walk across the lawn to look out for any issues, most lawn problems can be easily detected in their earliest stages, and prevented or cured with only the tiniest amount of effort.

Treat Lawn Problems Early

If left untreated, lawn diseases and infestations such as cutworm or ants, and all weed types will only ever continue to increase in severity, and once any of these problems reach this stage, none will be curable through organic means alone.

A lawn which is heavily infested with weeds, pests or diseases will always require intensive chemical treatments to cure, so for those of us who are organically minded, or even those who want to save themselves a lot of time, money and hassle, it's always best to get onto all of these problems as early as possible to gain the greatest results from the least amount of effort.
