Lawn Care programs designed for a healthy beautiful lawn in Boise, Eagle, Nampa, and Meridian, Idaho


Beautiful lawns don’t just happen by accident.  A lush healthy lawn requires planning and patience.  And part of that planning process involves seasonal lawn fertilization.  But because there is a science involved in the type of fertilizer and when it can be applied during the year, your best bet is to find a lawn care company that understands the science and can help develop a lawn care program designed with your yards unique needs in mind.

In Idaho most people have Kentucky Blue grass or another variety of cool season grasses.  Cool season grasses come out of their winter dormancy in early spring and begin to grow rapidly.  This growth slows down in the summer heat and then slowly picks back up in the fall with cooler temperatures.  In the fall most of the growth energy is focused on root growth and carbohydrate storage in preparation for winter.
A good lawn fertilization program will take the growth cycle of grass into consideration, applying just enough to keep the grass functioning properly but not cause any stress.  Organic fertilizer is a great choice because not only is safer, but it is less likely to burn your lawn and it will also promote healthy soil through beneficial soil microorganisms which provides natural aeration of the soil.
Consistent fertilization will help your lawn recover from stresses and diseases as well as improve color, density, and growth.  Fertilization when accompanied by preventive insect control for billbug and other damaging insects as well as weed prevention and control measures is the best way to ensure a healthy beautiful lawn all season long.

Preventing winter damage to your turf in Boise, Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa Idaho.


It’s January in the Treasure Valley and although the weather has been warmer than usual – winter weather is on the way.  The usually vibrant green of the grass has begun turning brown as it goes into a state of dormancy.  Even though it looks like it is dying, the grass is still alive and will green up again when the weather warms up in the spring.  But if we are hit with extreme cold temperatures and moisture isn’t allowed to reach the roots of the grass, your grass could get winter frost burn and be damaged. 
Grass can also be damaged in the winter from too much traffic.  In the cold and freezing months you should avoid walking, playing, parking and driving on the grass.  Grass is pretty resilient but has a harder time recovering from well-worn paths that occur during dormancy.  Try to keep your sidewalks and driveways cleared of snow so that there will be less temptation to walk through the yard.  Leaving cars or other objects on frozen turf will at the least make those areas more susceptible to weeds in the spring and at the worst result in dead spots. 

At Organic Solutions! Inc., we strive to give you the healthiest lawn all year long.  Our organic fertilizer can help your lawn revive quicker and look more vibrant in the spring.  If you would like to receive a free estimate for our fertilization and weed control programs, please contact us!  We can be reached by phone, 208-884-8986, by email, organicsolutionsinc@outlook.com, or through our website, www.idahoorganicsolutions.com.
