Treat your soil well and you will be rewarded. Studies have found that inhaling soil bacteria (mycobacterium vaccae) may increase learning ability. Eating soil, done by babies and in other cultures for eons, has received a lot of positive press lately for improving the immune system. Scientists are wondering how the Organic Soil Solutions Microscopic

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be teaching the upcoming “Organic Lawns for Homeowners” workshop at the Stoneham Public Library, 431 Main Street, on Saturday, April 9 from 11 am to 2 pm.

Under the snow sits a beautiful lawn waiting to stretch out and capture some rays. In an effort to help the grass enjoy the summer and grow happy and healthy, we are offering two separate programs this year: Traditional lawn care proposal is essentially the same program we’ve used the last few years. It provides

After witnessing the great New England leaf removal of the past few weeks, I’m struck by what a valuable resource we are taking away from a soil that sorely needs organic matter.

It’s been one of the toughest years ever for lawns. I’m told we had 23 days over 90 degrees, as opposed to 3 last year. Of course, it was the hottest July ever and the rain didn’t fall that much. Today, its 80 degrees, the leaves are falling and it’s still September. I think the

I recently spent a couple of days at a soil health workshop at Cornell attended by farmers and soil scientists. I asked a farmer how the crops were doing in western New York this summer. I knew they had a tough time last year due to very cool, wet weather. “No one’s complaining this year,”

There’s not a lot of glory caring for lawns in this hot summer. A lot of the cool season grass is brown, looking sullen and dejected. The too light green crab grass is wearing a smirk that says, “I can grow on cement if I want.” The crabgrass won’t look so hot once the first
