Lawn protection without toxic chemicals

We often do not realize it until it comes time to buy produce from your local farmers’ market or grocery store, but the chemicals used to repel, deter, or kill pests on your lawn or in your garden are usually not materials that you would want to even come close to ingesting.  Take for example chemical root killer.  Although it may seem harmless, this product usually contains copper sulfate which is dangerous and toxic to you if it gets on the skin or in the eyes.  You can even see the strength of the chemicals for yourself if you take the crystals and light them using rubbing alcohol or cheap vodka, the flame will burn blue like a children’s mad scientist project.

There are plenty of healthier options when it comes to your tree and lawn care, that don’t have to involve using harsh sprays, crystals, or anything else that is toxic.    Lots of folks, especially in suburban neighborhoods, get convinced by their neighbors that hiring a lawn spraying service is the best option just because everyone else is doing it.  There is a reason that those guys put a little plastic warning sign after they leave the job site– it is because the chemicals are dangerous for children, animals, and more to even walk on when they are still wet and haven’t absorbed into the ground.  So, rather than just jumping on the bandwagon, we at Green Tree Service Lodge Diaries recommend exploring more eco-friendly options that will not only help in the fight against climate change, it will keep you and your household far away from toxic chemicals.

Start your tree care service & arborist journey with these steps

If the well groomed and maintained beard on your face is an indicator of the time that you take to manage your appearance , then it is more than likely that your yard or lawn also indicates the work that you put in making your home or business front presentable to the public.  First impressions can be important especially if you are a business owner; however, if you have tree health issues, fallen trees, and more than it may be just more than the look of your lawn can be at risk.

When the arbor around your home is facing condition or health deterioration, you may not even be able to tell aside from them looking a little bit sick.  Chances are, you will neglect the care of arbor around your business or home because there are just so many other things to do during the day with work and family responsibilities.  But when left non maintained for extended periods of time, you could end up with safety hazards for your family.  Even if there is not a thunderstorm around, with rotting and sick trees, a fall without awareness and preparation could mean injury or structure damage to your home.

While there are some steps that you can do on your own to maintain your yard or lawn in between regularly scheduled visits from a pro arborist, remember to keep the big jobs that require heavy (and often hazardous) equipment to those who are trained.
