Don’t go there just yet!

Don’t go there just yet!

In 1983 the band Def Leppard released their album Pyromania. The First track on the LP (you know vinyl) was Rock Rock (Till you drop). This music typified what I was listening to in the 80’s. This has absolutely nothing to do with a landscape but I can segway...

Soil Hydration

Soil Hydration

Observe the Masses and do the Opposite

Observe the Masses and do the Opposite

J. Paul Getty, America’s first billionaire was quoted as saying, “Observe the masses and do the opposite”. He was referring to conventional wisdom and how it can be a distraction from the truth. What makes its deceiving is that the masses are all...

Dead Grass and Trees

Dead Grass and Trees

Progress Bars

Progress Bars

We all like to know where we stand in life. We believe in this too. In the past when we were operating in the synthetic system we would judge success by how green the lawn was, regardless of the issues we were having. We never looked at the soil and ran tests to see...
But my neighbor’s lawn…

What Does It Take?

What Does It Take?

There is a lot of confusion, bad habit, poor science (bro science), myth, tradition and perhaps even a little superstition. While there is a lot of information to be aware of I want to break it down for you just to simplify so you can understand the basics and make a...
Fire your Lawn Care Provider

Fire your Lawn Care Provider

Your lawn care provider may be costing you money and a LOT of it! If your lawn care provider is engaged in a synthetic program to provide their service you may be wasting more in water if you were engaged in a Biological system. If your service provider has never used...
Overcoming a Mindset

Overcoming a Mindset

Unless you are over the age of 125 you would not think that the use of synthetic fertilizers is abnormal as you have been using them your entire life. In our awakening a few years ago after speaking with a farmer that led us to the concept of regenerative agriculture...
“I think we’re good with no more water”

“I think we’re good with no more water”

I want you to read this statement about five times and decide whether this is a good mentality after the last 18 months of less than ideal weather, specifically precipitation. There is a certain class of person that views their landscape as a chore, really do not...
