Our Green Lawn Care Program
Since the environment is central to all that we do, Lawn Doctor offers customers natural lawn services. Lawn Doctor knows that we have some customers who prefer to use only lawn fertilizers and lawn maintenance products that are natural. This option is typically referred to as all-natural or “green” lawn care. Lawn Doctor’s natural yard care options will help produce a lawn that is both green and healthy.
Our natural care programs have a commitment to Environmental Stewardship. We were careful to take the health of the environment into consideration while designing each of our natural lawn services. Customers who choose one of our natural maintenance programs may also elect to supplement them with Lawn Doctor’s Custom Lawn Care.
Natural Care and Maintenance Services
The fertilizers used in Lawn Doctor’s Natural Lawn services are 100% all-natural. Our services have absolutely no lab-synthesized chemical lawn nutrients, but they still provide the basic nutrients that a lawn needs (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) from totally all-natural organic sources to assure your lawn will be healthy.

Natural Lawn Maintenance Can Lead to a Lawn That is Healthy and Green
Our natural lawn services aim to give you a healthy lawn without using chemicals or synthetic materials. A natural lawn will not have the same appearance as a lawn that receives our traditional Lawn Maintainer Care, in that our Natural Lawn Program does not apply pesticides or weed control. Customers choosing a natural lawn treatment program are going to need to use recommended practices when performing lawn maintenance between visits from Lawn Doctor in order to keep your lawn as healthy as possible.
How do our Lawn Maintainer Care and the Natural Lawn Maintenance Program differ?
Our Lawn Maintainer Care Program uses man-made fertilizers that contain as much as ten times the nutrient value as natural fertilizers. It is necessary to apply natural lawn fertilizers in higher volumes to deliver nutrient levels that are equal. Man-made lawn fertilizers get converted more quickly in the soil to a form that grass plants can absorb so they can nourish the plants more quickly, delivering fast green-up and plant growth. The conversion of natural lawn fertilizers is more gradual, which releases nutrients more slowly to the plant.
Environmentally Friendly Green Lawn Care
Grass plants do not discriminate between naturally occurring and manufactured nutrients, so one program is not safer than the other for the environment. But plants do not react as fast or intensely to fertilizer applications that are all-natural since a larger amount of core nutrients are generally needed.
Our proprietary Turf Tamer® equipment applies our Green Lawn Services just as it does our heralded Lawn Maintainer Care Program. Our ground-metered equipment makes sure your lawn receives the correct nutrient amount it requires to enjoy healthy growth.
Our Lawn Maintainer and Natural Yard Care Services are each great for lawns. When your trained and licensed Lawn Doctor specialist applies them, both are environmentally friendly. Each of these programs will benefit not only your lawn but the environment.
Lawn Doctor’s Natural Lawn Care Guarantee
If a Lawn Doctor Natural Lawn Application fails to achieve satisfactory results, just let us know. As your locally operated Lawn Doctor franchise, we will either come back and reapply the application at no additional cost or we will refund the entire cost of your previous application.
Green Lawn Care Tips
Our natural lawn services offer safe and chemical-free lawn maintenance and care. Natural lawn maintenance often includes the use of compost that contains fungi and bacteria that produces numerous microbial benefits. We take lots of care in preparing soil before natural lawn treatments. Correct lawn preparation and maintenance is necessary to make sure that new grass seed will germinate. The best way to achieve a green lawn care is by properly applying fertilizer and weeding in conjunction with the kind of grass the lawn uses.
Green yard care depends on the correct timing and care of natural services in relation to the specific kind of climate, geography and grass of every area.
