Why hire a professional lawn care company in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho.

A great looking yard doesn’t happen by accident it takes consistency, knowledge, and hard work to achieve that perfect green lawn that is the envy of the neighborhood.  Not only does a healthy lawn require a consistent mowing schedule it also requires fertilization.  But fertilization and lawn treatment requirements are time sensitive and unique to each lawns needs.  The knowledge of seasonal care requirements as well as how to treat the various problems that may arise can be daunting. 
Here are some of the main reasons you might consider hiring a professional lawn care company:
Consistent Attention.  Timing is extremely important in the care and treatment of your yard.  There are certain seasons in which some treatments are more successful than others.  For example if you want a Pre-Emergent that keeps weeds from germinating, you have a very small window in the spring and the fall in which to get optimum results.  And for a healthy lawn, regular fertilization spread throughout the growing season is recommended.
Proper Methods.  An experienced lawn tech will know what treatments work for your particular grass and the issues that may be stressing it.  They can adjust the amounts of fertilizer and the type of nutrients they use each time they come based on the needs at the time.  They will also know when and how to apply the treatments for the best result.
Healthy Outcomes.  At Organic Solutions, Inc., we endeavor to use organic products that not only increase the health of your lawn but are also safe for you, your family, and your pets.  We are continually striving for excellence in the lawn care industry and seeking to use the very best and safest products available.

The Benefits of a well-manicured lawn in Boise, Nampa, Meridian, and Eagle Idaho.

Lately there has been a lot of backlash against the concept of having a nice green lawn around your home.  This has come from environmental concerns with the amount of water that is needed as well as from the use of toxic pesticides and herbicides that are commonly used to keep the grass green and weed free. 
Luckily there are more and more organic methods that are being developed and used to fertilize the lawn and help it to fight off weeds naturally without having to resort to treatments that can be harmful to the environment.  So before you decide to remove all the grass and let your yard go “au natural”, consider the positive effects that a beautiful lawn can provide.
Benefits of a healthy lawn:
Air Quality.  Because grass is a living organism capable of photosynthesis, it is able to take the carbon dioxide in the air and convert it into oxygen. The average lawn creates enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe.  Some have said that grass is one of the most sensible ways of countering the greenhouse effect in urban areas.  In addition to removing carbon dioxide from the air it also reduces the amount of dust and dirt that is released into the air as well.
Cooling of Air.  On a summer day an area of asphalt or bare soil can be between 7 and 30 degrees warmer than the average lawn.  And a healthy lawn can actually be more productive in cooling the air than the average air conditioner.  This cooling effect is caused by the release of water into the air through a process called transpiration, much like the process of human perspiration.  The more grass that is planted in the cities the more we can counteract the heat-island effect of the urban landscape. 
Improves natural water sources.  A dense lawn reduces pollution and run off.  Because the lawn absorbs most of the water rather than letting it run off into gutters and drains it helps keep our rivers and streams clean by reducing the amount of unfiltered water that flows into them.  A healthy lawn is actually 4-6 times more effective in absorbing water than the average field of wheat or hay.  A lawn will also filter the water as it absorbs it and thus cleaner water is entering the aquifers that we so heavily rely upon.
Health and Wellness.  Green spaces help improve people’s mood and contribute to their mental as well as physical wellbeing.  Not only does one’s blood pressure and muscle tension reduce when exposed to outdoor spaces but even hospital patients have been seen to improve quicker when their room overlooks a lawn or park like landscape rather than viewing other buildings.  Employees were also shown to be less stressed and more productive if they had the benefit of an outdoor space or the view of a landscaped lawn from their window.  Green spaces are also shown to help children think and process better. 
Community Connections.  Not only does a well landscaped yard improve one’s property value substantially but manicured lawns and open spaces in neighborhood also help to create a sense of community.  When there are places to gather and for kids to play people will naturally connect more.  It’s been shown that landscaped neighborhoods not only have more socializing among neighbors but that they are safer with decreased police calls for crimes, domestic issues and child abuse. 

These are just some of the advantages that come from having a healthy lawn, which is one of nature’s best ground covers.  
If you would like to have a beautiful lawn or landscape we can help you in each step of the process from design and implementation to mowing and maintenance.

Patience and Persistence result in a naturally healthy and beautiful yard in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho.

Hal Borland wrote, "Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience.  Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence."

Patience and persistence are qualities that many of us struggle with in our culture today.   We have become unaccustomed to waiting in a world of fast food, express lanes, and high speed internet.  Many frustrated homeowners don’t realize that attaining that perfect emerald green lawn takes a lot more than regular mowing but a lot of patience and persistence as well.

Having a beautiful lawn requires persistent dedication as well as a whole lot of effort.  Not only is consistent mowing and trimming a must, it also take regular fertilization and the ability to troubleshoot and treat each problem as it arises.

Often time homeowners in an effort to beautify their lawns will resort to quick release fertilizers that may contain harmful chemicals as well as can contribute to even more problems for your grass if over watered.  They may not realize that there are organic options available that are safer for the environment as well as for their family and pets. 

For homeowners who are looking for a “green” alternative, organic fertilizers, with a little patience, can actually outperform the more toxic options over the long run.  Organic fertilizer is made up of living organisms that over time will naturally aerate your lawn and prevent having to manually aerate. It also releases nutrients at a slower pace and over a longer period of time than synthetic fertilizers which improves the health and quality of the grass.

A lawn care system that incorporates organic fertilizer may take longer to see results because they work by actually building up the health of the soil.  Having healthy soil full of good nutrients will help your lawn grow stronger and denser so that it can naturally fight off weeds and diseases.  But this natural approach may take time and patience to achieve, depending on how unhealthy your lawn was to begin with.

If you would like to have a beautiful lawn that is also safe for you and those you love, consider the long term benefits of an organic lawn care system. 

At Organic Solutions! Inc., we pride ourselves on eco-friendly products, friendly and consistent service, and the patience and persistence to help you achieve the lawn of your dreams.

Spring lawn Care steps for a healthy and beautiful yard in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho.

Today is the first day of spring on the calendar and many homeowners are wondering if there are steps they can take now to ensure a beautiful lawn this summer.  

Here are some suggestions to help prevent or minimize common problems as well as increase the health or your yard in the spring:

  • Take a survey or your trees and hedges.  Do they need pruning or shaping?  Now is the time to decide whether you want to take this on yourself or hire someone to do them for you.
  • Are there depressions in your grass where puddles are forming after a rain?  Low spots will cause poor drainage which can lead to lawn weeds, lawn pests and lawn diseases.  This is another good time to practice organic lawn care. To level out the area, take compost and mix it with top soil.  Put the mixture on any areas with low spots.  Take a rake and level out the area.
  • Clean up any leaves or branches, dog waste, or other items that may have accumulated on your lawn or in garden beds through the winter.  (Remember that yard waste makes great compost).
  • Apply Pre-Emergent to you lawn in early spring to prevent crab grass and other problem weeds from germinating.
  • Apply fertilizer to your lawn in mid-spring to give it the nutrients it needs to be healthy.  Healthy grass Is able to resist diseases and weeds better as well as just plain looks better.
  • Mow and Trim your lawn.  It is recommended that the first mowing of the season be short (2 to 2 ¾ inches) which will help eliminate dead grass.

A lush green lawn in summer begins with planning and implementation in the spring.  At Organic Solutions! Inc., we can design a plan that will keep your grasses and landscape healthy through each season of the year.  Contact us today for a free estimate.

Consistent lawn mowing for lawn health and your peace of mind in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho.

As Americans we love a well-kept lawn, for us it is more than a status symbol, but often represents our dreams and desires.  We love the idea of gathering friends and family together for a summer BBQ, having the neighbor kids over for a game of touch football, or even holding an important event such as a family reunion or a wedding. 

A nice yard can be a refuge from the strains of work or the constrains of small indoor spaces.  And researchers are even finding that there are certain chemicals released by a freshly mowed lawn that not only makes people feel happy and relaxed but also may even help prevent or at least postpone the mental decline that comes with age.

But the busy lifestyle that many Americans live often makes it difficult to find the time that goes into mowing, trimming and edging their grass on a consistent basis.  And because a nice lawn can add value to a home or a neighborhood, neglecting your lawn can get you in trouble with your neighbors or HOA's. 

Some people with limited time are tempted to skip mowing their lawn on a weekly basis, or cutting their lawns super short to give them more time in-between mowing.  This may seem harmless, but cutting the grass too low can damage the grass as well as allow weeds to take root.  On the other hand, skipping a mowing and allowing your grass to grow tall also causes damage and you can end up with a stressed and shaggy looking lawn rather than that nice dense emerald green grass we desire.

If keeping your grass consistently mowed is an issue, you might consider having a professional lawn care company take care of the weekly mowing for you.  Some of the advantages of hiring a lawn care company include:
  • Time Savings– It can take up to 3 hours or more a week to care for the average lawn.  That is time you could spend doing something else.

  • Cost Efficient – Your time is valuable and you also don’t have to spend your time and money on all the equipment and materials needed to care for your yard.

  • Exceptional Equipment – Having the best equipment for mowing, edging, and trimming can be expensive to buy let alone maintain.  Lawn care professionals have the ability to invest in the equipment needed to do the job right.

  • Minimizing exposure to allergens – for those who struggle with allergies, mowing and caring for their grass can be difficult or even dangerous.  Having a lawn care company take care of your grass means you won’t have to deal with the itchy eyes, runny nose, or other issues caused by grass pollens.

As Little Richard once said, “The grass may look greener on the other side, but believe me, it’s just as hard to cut”.   

At Organic Solutions! Inc., we have over 15 years’ experience and the knowledge to handle all the needs of your lawn, whether your property is commercial or residential, large or small. Let us take the stress and hassle out of keeping up a well maintained healthy lawn, give us a call, 208-884-8986, for a free estimate.

Spiders and Webs Oh My! Spider Barrier keeps spiders away from your Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho home.

Someone said the definition of a spider web is a thing you walk into which suddenly turns you into a karate expert!

Whether they are harmless or not so harmless, most people would rather not have spiders taking up residence in their homes.  Spiders typically enter homes through small gaps and cracks around doors and window frames, poorly screened windows, and other vulnerable areas around the foundation and roof.  Sometimes spiders hitch a ride into your home from items that were kept outside. 

Spiders like to hide in dark areas in order to trap their prey such as other spiders, insects, or flies.  Some spiders like dark moist areas such as basements and crawl spaces.  Other spiders hide in attics, air vents and other warm dry areas. 

There are some protective measures that you can take to minimize spiders in and around your home.  Practically speaking, regular cleaning is one of the best ways to keep spiders at bay.  Regularly taking a long-handled duster to the interior and exterior of your home and any outside buildings will help keep spiders from multiplying.  Making sure that your doors and windows have tight fitting screens will also help minimize spiders and their prey from entering your home. 

You can also protect your home and loved ones by having a professional apply a spider barrier.  A spider barrier is capable of treating those problem areas such as foundations, cracks, windows, doors, and under the eaves of your roof.  A spider barrier works by adhering to the spiders legs as they cross the barrier and then when the spider cleans itself it ingests the product and will no longer be a threat.

If you find spiders in and around your home, give us a call, 208-884-8986, our expert team at Organic Solutions! Inc., will come up with a customized plan to fit your particular needs.

Sprinkler installation for ease and efficiency in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho.

Spring is fast approaching and as the weather warms up homeowners begin to think about their yards and how they can improve their landscape.  One of the most popular improvements that people desire for ease as well as efficiency is the addition of a sprinkler system. 
Your yard and gardens have varying needs on the amount of water they need.  Over-watering can lead to all kinds of problems such as turf diseases, soil compaction, increased weeds, nutrient loss, and more.  On the other hand under-watering not only makes your lawn more unattractive it can lead to cell deterioration which makes it more susceptible to damage from disease, insects, and weeds. 
Today’s sprinkler systems have many options that give you the ability to control what part of your landscape gets water and when.  New technologies are emerging that can even help your sprinkler system adjust to weather conditions automatically or that allow you to access your system remotely.  At Organic Solutions, Inc., we can help you navigate the many choices and options available.
A properly designed and professionally installed sprinkler system not only increases the value of your property but gives you as the homeowner more time to do the things you really want to do without having to spend the time and energy required to keep your lawns and gardens on a consistent and measured watering schedule.
At Organic Solutions! Inc., we can help you carefully design a sprinkler system that will provide maximum coverage to your lawn and gardens as well as benefit the environment.  Every property is unique and we will work with you to create a system that fits into your budget as well as your long term goals for your property.

After a heavy winter, Snow Mold abounds in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho.

So you survived “Snowpocalypse 2017” but it doesn’t look like your lawn did.  If your once beautiful grass contains white and yellowish spots it may indicate the presence of a lawn fungus that likes to breed under heavy snow commonly known as Snow Mold.  

Before you panic, take a deep breath, for the most part Snow Mold should go away on its own.  You can expedite your lawn’s recovery from Snow Mold by gently raking the affected areas.  Removing the loose discolored grass will allow the air to circulate and aid your grass in the healing process. Remember to always tread sparingly on damp grass to prevent further damage.  

In most cases, your lawn has the ability to heal and recover from snow mold on its own but it will take several weeks of warm spring weather for the damaged areas to appear healthy again.  If the infected areas are severe there may be a need for reseeding or for a professional application of fungicide.  At Organic Solutions! Inc., we have experts who can appraise the condition of your lawn and recommend the measures needed to restore your lawn to full health.
