Stonyfield Organic, the popular organic dairy brand, recently launched a Lawn Care Toolkit initiative designed to help consumers “go organic” in their backyards. The brand is dedicated to helping consumers live an organic lifestyle and this is especially important for your children and pets, as fertilizing and using pesticides has harmful effects on people and animals.
To help people begin in their organic lawn care journey, Stonyfield created a simple guide to help people make the switch. Some simple ways to keep lawns healthy is to mow high as short grass is often stressed, requiring more water; overseed to grow a lush, green lawn; dethatch to keep your lawn strong year-round; and aerate to keep lawns resistant by allowing oxygen, water, and nutrients to penetrate past the topsoil to reach the root zone.
