The Grass is Greener Lawn Service utilizes Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in caring for your lawn and ornamental trees and shrubs. IPM is a method of combining proper cultural and environmental practices to create and maintain healthy plants and turf. We use pesticides only when necessary, using the smallest possible amount to effectively treat the pest. We make two trips across your lawn when treating. First, we apply a dry product of fertilizer, soil conditioner, and crabgrass preventer, followed by a liquid weed control, treating only the weeds that are present in the lawn. Why cover 100% of the lawn if you have weeds in only 25% or 50% of the lawn? There are many advantages to this two-step process. A dry application can be a controlled-release product, allowing the product to feed the lawn slowly over a period of weeks or months. With a liquid product, the fertilizer is quickly used up by the lawn and has no lasting effect. This is a more time-consuming process, but we know our environment is worth the extra effort.

“Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.” Source: Integrated Pest Management Principles; www.epa.gov
What IPM means to us is using the environmentally safe products possible, taking every precaution to handle products according to established standards, treating only when a pest is present, and treating only the pest.
