Description
This year we have more and more people interested in gardening and landscapes. From growing your own food to beautifying your landscape, consumers are asking for more organics. Soil is the foundation for any landscape or garden. What is “healthy” soil and how do you know if you have it? Let us explore the basics of how to restore, revive and regenerate the backbone of your landscape’s, lawns, and gardens by growing healthy soil organically. Your customer’s landscape will thrive, will be more disease and pest resistant, will hold water more efficiently in turn minimizing runoff and erosions issues. We will talk about the benefits of organics versus synthetics and the impact on your soil & how they affect overall growth. We will also discuss the benefits from a hybrid approach. Let us go from pandemic to what is possible, it is time to reevaluate how we operate and open our garden gate to something maybe new!
