“Organic” is a word on the lips of more and more people every day. And it's a concept being widely embraced, whether it applies to the food we eat or the landscapes around our homes.
Borst Landscape and Design has long been in the forefront as advocates for an organic, sustainable approach to lawn, tree and shrub care, offering the most environmentally sensitive treatment options available.
Organic lawn care programs improve the overall condition of the soil by promoting healthier and stronger root growth through:
o Natural aeration
o Root stimulation
o Natural thatch control
o The use of secondary micronutrients
An organic tree and shrub program employs customized blends of organic nutrients and soil conditioners to:
o Promote optimum plant vigor
o Improve disease resistance
o Increase stress tolerance
o Maintain healthy growing conditions.
While there are some infestations that still require treatment with non-organic materials, Borst believes in applying those treatments only to the affected area and only as needed. This is a departure from the common industry practice of applying a series of as many as five "blanket" chemical treatments.
