Successful organic lawns start from the soil up, Selena's Landscape, Design & Tree Service includes a Comprehensive Soil Analysis with our 100% Organic Lawn Treatment Program to ensure the best possible, chemical-free lawn.

Optional 100% Organic Lawn Services:
Optional lawn repair and restoration measures may be recommended in addition to your 100% Organic Annual Lawn Program to keep your lawn in the best condition that organic treatments can provide. These services include:
Crabgrass Suppression: Treat crabgrass before it emerges with Selena's Landscape, Design & Tree Service corn gluten.
Organic Grub Control: Apply Beneficial Nematodes or Milky Spore Bacteria
Weed Control: Special application of organic weed and grass control in garden beds.
Tick Control: Selena's Landscape, Design & Tree Service uses a combination of 100% organic insecticide plus perimeter clean up of overgrown areas and pruning to let in more sunlight on shady tick habitats.
Please note: The effectiveness of the above organic controls is more limited than chemical-based treatments.
Core Aeration: Aeration helps relieve soil compaction, allowing more air, water and nutrients to reach the root zone. It also promotes thatch decomposition and stimulates root development for a healthier, thicker lawn.
Organic Top Dressing: To improve soil structure and quality, organic material should be applied to your lawn. This service is best done in conjunction with Core Aeration.
Seeding: As part of organic lawn management, we can introduce new, more disease and insect resistant varieties of grass into your lawn.
Lime: When lawn acidity is too high, lime may be recommended at rates specified in the CSA.
De-Thatching: If we determine that you have a thatch problem, we will recommend removing excess thatch with a special machine to allow more air, water and nutrients to reach the root zone.
Rototilling: Healthy plants start with healthy soil! Rototilling relieves compaction, improves moisture holding capacity, prepares gardens for planting and creates new seed beds for lawn renovations.
Lawn Renovation: For new construction or lawns in extremely poor condition, a more intensive approach is required. Our free initial lawn evaluation and ongoing monitoring will determine the combination of our optional services to build a healthy lawn.
