A lawn may be just as important to the homeowner as any other part of the home. To many, keeping a lawn that is free of any pests is crucial. Pesticide free means that there are no chemicals or herbicides that can affect humans, children and your yard in general. Many pesticides can lead to a possible cancer and harm children out in the yard. Here are some good ways to maintain your lawn free of pest:
1. Aerate your lawn twice a year:
It is very important to control the weed growing in your lawn. Too much soil compaction is one of the biggest common causes of weeds. by aerating, you are removing small parts of soil that allow for breathing and much more nutrient intake to the grass.
2. Test your pH:
Having the right pH is important in any pesticide free lawn. Test out your pH levels and adjust your soils. Dandelion growth and infestation is one of the key signs of pH imbalance.
3. Water properly:
If you over water or under water, it can cause an outbreak of pesticides. Avoid watering too frequently or shallow, and try to use natural organic fertilizers that increase the length of water held in the soil.
4. Apply bacterium:
To control the amount of bugs and pests on your lawn, try applying Bacillus papillae which will control your lawn and prevent bugs from getting into soil. Applying Bacillus thuringiensis can also kill sod webworms.
5. Have healthy soil:
Making sure you have healthy and great soil is crucial because the soil in your lawn will prevent or cause pesticides. Sample the current soil with a soil probe, and see if the lawn has 5-6 inches of topsoil, as needed. If you find that you need different or more soil, try adding organic matter such as composted manures.
