Lawn & Turf Fertilization Services in Michigan – Feed the Soil

Healthy Soil is the Key to Great Lawn!

Our fertilization programs vary from conventional programs in one major way. Harmony concentrates on improving the turf and the soil. Our soil based programs were designed to accomplish two significant goals.

  • To maintain quality turf from season to season and year to year.
  • To decrease the amount of fertilizer and pesticide required.

As the recommended programs demonstrate, reaching these goals is a process that requires time, yet doesn’t sacrifice results. At first the change may be subtle, but as the soil and turf are bridged from conventional to high organic maintenance, the change becomes more profound.

Healthy soil is the key to good turf with fewer chemical inputs. Harmony works by feeding the millions of micro and macro organisms that are essential to well functioning soil. Good soil promotes healthy turf by providing air, moisture and nutrients to the plant roots, even when weather conditions are not favorable. Fewer problems develop and there is less need for pesticides that can harm soil life.

Harmony and Earthgro Professional Turf Foods

While there are times when pesticides are needed to obtain acceptable turf (especially when soil conditions are extremely poor), the goal should always be to reduce these inputs over time by improving soil conditions. The complete line of Harmony and Earthgro Professional Turf Foods is designed with this goal in mind.
