Green Lawn Mowing Services… Anyone?

Did you know that you can have a healthy and beautifully maintained lawn and help save Mother Earth at the same time? Let’s face it. A well maintained lawn beautifies the environment. However, the emissions of the garden machines as well as the chemicals used for lawn maintenance have harmful effects on the environment too. Nowadays, people are aware of the urgent need to save the environment. You can support “save the environment” programs by opting to hire green lawn mowing services.

A lot of lawn care companies are providing organic lawn care services to meet the demands of environmentally conscious clients. Instead of gasoline powered garden machines, an eco-friendly lawn mowing service company uses manually powered, solar powered or electric equipment. The mowers, blowers and trimmers would be pollution free. Instead of harmful chemicals, green lawn mowing service companies would use organic fertilizers and natural weed and insect control methods.

These lawn mowing services usually leave the grass clippings to serve as mulch that allows the lawn to retain moisture. Grass clippings will act as fertilizers that will activate useful microorganisms thereby invigorating the soil and improving its structure. Not all property owners though would want to have the grass clipping left on the lawn as too much grass clipping can cause the lawn to develop thatch. The lawn care service can collect the clippings for their compost.

Green lawn mowing service companies typically have a different mowing method. Unlike traditional mowing that cuts the grass 1 or 1 ½ inches, these eco-friendly lawn service people cut the grass a little higher. Don’t be surprised if you see that the grass on the newly mown lawn is still 3 to 4 inches high. This method is actually beneficial. The long grass shades the soil thus the lawn will require less water. Long grass crowd out and smothers the weeds thereby naturally eliminating weed growth.

Home and business owners have proven that organic lawn care is the best option. This better way of mowing and maintaining your lawn allows you to have the peace of mind that you are not harming the environment, that you are providing your children and pets a safer area to play. Eco-friendly lawn mowing service providers allow you to enhance your property’s curb appeal without harming the environment. Lawn care companies of this type are already found in many areas. All you need to do to find one is search the phone book or search online.
