Lawn care fertilization using only clean, non-toxic food grade materials that provide life to the lawn, do not kill the soil while they do kill the weeds. We give life to the soil and say good-bye to the weeds.

What is your definition of Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

In some cases. For example, I would schedule parasitic nematodes and milky spore to be used in early summer.
