Compost Top-Dressing is the most effective and economical way to improve your soil! Rebuild depleted soil with all-natural nutrient rich concentrated compost. Getting on a two- or three-year top-dressing plan can drastically improve your lawn and reduce the amount of watering and fertilizing you need to do in the future to maintain a healthy lawn.
Organic Weed Prevention is here! This year we will offer organic weed prevention in the form of corn gluten meal as an add on product applied in spring between the core aeration and late spring organic feeding. Corn Gluten Meal (CGM) is a natural broad-leaf pre-emergent that helps prevent weeds from establishing in the spring. CGM is rich in Slow Release Nitrogen which helps promote thicker lawns and lasting turf color. Great for boulevards!
Anthony Nied founded Safe & Simple Organic Lawns in 2018 in pursuit of his mission to improve quality of life and happiness through organic lawn care. By keeping it simple and focusing on soil health, he developed an annual lawn care program that eliminates all need for pesticides! Healthy soil equals a healthy lawn. Safe & Simple Organic Lawns provides the best lawn care available in the Eau Claire area. It's safe, it's simple, and it works!
In 2011, Anthony Nied took over the management of the lawn care division for a local garden center which had hundreds of conventional lawn care customers. Anthony graduated from CVTC with an associate degree in Horticulture, Landscape, Plant & Turf Management. With a newborn child at home and the knowledge about the hazards of chemical fertilizers and pesticides fresh in his mind, he knew he had to do something.
Anthony relentlessly researched each organic lawn care product on the market, rigorously testing organic fertilizers and bio-based organic pesticides for effective weed and pest control. He then realized he was making things too complicated. Through his own trials and by researching numerous university studies, Anthony determined that cultural practices like aeration, mowing, and watering play a far bigger role in improving soil health than fertilizer alone. It was time to get back to basics.Take the Pledge to Go Truly Organic
