Hello April! In addition to rain, spring blooms and warmer temps, this month is great for growing healthier lawns with Espoma’s 30 days of tips!
Starting today, we’re sharing daily lawn care tips to kick off National Lawn Care month and help people make the switch to organic lawns and create “Safe Paws” environments. Follow along on Facebook or Twitter to learn how to create a lush, green and organic lawn in 30 days.
To show our commitment to chemical free lawns that are safe for pets, we are also hosting a #SafePawsChallenge and donating $500 to the National Canine Cancer Foundation for every 5,000 new likes during the month of April. The foundation funds research and raises awareness to fight cancers that affect dogs.
Creating an organic lawn keeps your family and pets safe. But did you know an organic lawn can save you money and time, too?
According to Environmental Grassroots Education, you’ll save money making the switch to organic lawns in the long-term. Specifically, you can save more than 25% by using organic lawn products. How’s that possible?
With conventional, chemical lawn programs, you spend money every year on products engineered to be short-term solutions. And you leave your lawn craving more.
Organic lawn care is different.
From all-natural soil amendments to organic lawn fertilizer, they all improve your soil’s health and structure over time. As natural lawn foods break down, your soil becomes stronger on its own and needs less help.
As an added bonus, organic lawns need less watering, fertilizing and mowing all summer long. Yes — that means you get to spend more time enjoying your beautiful lawn and less time caring for it!
Saving money and time are big advantages of organic lawn care. But we haven’t even got to the most important one yet!
Every time you opt for organic lawn care products, you’re creating a safer environment for your pets and family. Plus, you’re taking care of the planet.
Listen to this: Americans spread 90 million pounds of pesticides on their lawns every year according to the EPA.
All those chemicals and pesticides are potentially harmful to kiddos playing barefoot and pets running in the grass.
With organic lawn care products, there’s no need to worry about harmful effects on your family or the planet.
So, spend this spring and summer fully enjoying your outdoor sanctuary.
