Organically maintained lawns:
- Are safe for children and pets
- Use less water
- Need fewer mowings
- Crowd out weeds
- Resist pests
- And Look Great!
Which adds up to savings for you!
Your lawn will stay greener with less water, less frequent mowing, and it will develop a long term natural defense so you won't need to rely on chemicals to fight insects and diseases that would destroy your lawn. Our soil conditioner is made from North Atlantic Kelp, is completely organic, sustainable, and non-toxic. No more concern for your children and pets!
Working with nature, not against it...
Carolina Organic Lawn Care concentrates on developing healthy soil. Our organic method stimulates growth of beneficial microbes and earthworms, creating a rich, healthy soil. Healthy soil grows healthy lawns!
Properly aerated and conditioned, your lawn will develop a stronger, deeper root system. As a result, your turf will be more drought and heat resistant, and better able to pull nutrients and oxygen from the soil. This stimulates lateral growth, creating a thicker lawn, better able to crowd out weeds, and needs less frequent mowing. Chemical fertilizers promote vertical blade growth and need to be mowed more often.
Soil is a living organism, containing micro-flora -- microscopic bacteria, nematodes, and fungi -- that are dependent on available carbon for food, growth, and replication.

Synthetic High Nitrogen Fertilizers boost the risk of insect and disease infestations, weed problems and cause immense stress on your plants or seedlings. It's clear, synthetic fertilizers induce a quick growing rush by making excess nutrients available for a short time. The plant absorbs the chemicals quickly and uses the excess energy for very rapid growth above the soil in lieu of of storing carbohydrates. The excessive nitrogen also leaches through the soil or easily washes away (polluting ground and surface water) leaving the salt to toxify the soil which reduces the microbe and earthworm populations. This consequently reduces nutrient cycling, noticeably reduces organic matter (inhibits thatch composting), and the resulting soil compaction promotes weeds and further soil damage.
Our Natural Fertilizer, Soil Conditioner, and Compost Tea solution immediately reverses this process. Many of it's nutrients are in chelated form which holds them in reserve until they are needed.
Our Solution is a total supply of nutrients as organic compounds such as carbohydrates and proteins which are held in the soil until the microbes and other organisms in our Compost Tea digest them. This starts and fuels the "self sustaining" process leading to increased nutrient cycles and naturally aerated soil structures.
You cannot find a more potent combination of hydrolyzed fish extracts, kelp, sulfate of potash, microbiology and other proprietary ingredients than we have in our lawn solution.
