Organic Lawn Care Made Easy

Lawn Care Made Easy...Naturally

Our guide to organic lawn care is a collection of thoughtfully put together information that we have gleaned over our ten plus years in the lawncare industry.

It's designed to bring you what we consider to be the most helpful strategies in organic lawn maintenance for the "do it yourselfer".

We've even included tips and advice in what to look for when hiring a lawncare company, should the need arise.


Hi there! We're Jim and Jill Carty, and we're excited to be able to share our hands on experience and hard won knowledge with you.

Jim and I have worked together in our family owned and operated lawn care company for over 10 years in Peterborough and the Kawarthas of Ontario, Canada.

We've treated thousands of lawns over the years and stood the test of many changes in our industry as it has evolved to the now totally pesticide free status as a result of recent legislation.

Our company has always been a leader in the organic lawn care industry, so adapting to these changes has been an easier transition for us than for some.

What's In The Guide?

You'll find our guide separates fact from fiction, and is written in an understandable format complete with photos and videos that will equip you with all you'll need to know about safe, natural, organic lawn care applications.

Don't Panic!

For those of you used to traditional methods of lawn maintenance, we'll introduce you to a new way to think about your lawn as you learn how to eliminate weeds and lawn pests organically.

As a homeowner used to having access to traditional pesticides to treat lawn weeds, crabgrass, white grubs and chinch bugs, you might be asking yourself....what now?!

Really...don't panic!

We're here to help. With a little common sense and some hard work on your part, our organic lawncare guide filled with tips and techniques on our part, we can partner along the way to a beautiful, lush, organic lawn for you to enjoy with family and friends.
