It’s time to get proactive and stop mosquitoes from stealing your blood and your freedom — Keep reading to learn how!
With so many fertilizer options available on the market, trying to find the best food for your lawn can be overwhelming at times. That’s why it’s so important to familiarize yourself with the various types of fertilizers and learn how to use them correctly. As a leading lawn fertilization service that serves Bucks County, PA, Go Green Lawn Services knows a thing or two about growing healthy grass. In this article, we break down some of the differences between organic and chemical fertilizers, and provide an insight into what elements comprise each type of fertilizer.
As spring and summer bloom, insects flock to your yard, putting your family and pets at risk.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, illnesses caused by flea, tick, and mosquito bites have tripled between 2004 and 2016. Pennsylvania, in particular, has been hard hit by bug-borne disease, with the most confirmed cases of Lyme disease every year from 2011 to 2016.
Go Green Lawn Services offers a solution. As part of our neighborhood lawn services in the Willow Grove, PA, area, we offer insect control applications that are 100 percent organic and an effective repellent for the pests threatening to make you sick.

Spring is here, and your lawn needs your help so that it can shake off the effects of winter and return to optimal health. How you care for your lawn now will ensure a thick, beautiful yard that you and your family can enjoy for the rest of the year.
One of the largest direct impacts on a healthy lawn is good cultural practices. What does that mean? It’s really just a fancy way of talking about lawn care. Cultural practices include everything from proper mowing, watering, and landscaping.
Here are our recommendations for good spring cultural practices:
In the spring, our experts recommend that you mow your lawn weekly or biweekly (every two weeks). Ideally, we want the grass to be between 3-4 inches long. The longer the blades of grass, the deeper the roots, and deeper roots can absorb nutrients from deeper in the soil. If you have really short grass that’s constantly getting stressed with frequent mowing, on top of heat and droughts, the grass will not be able to stay green and healthy.
We can’t stress this enough: We do NOT want to be watering in the spring. Too much of anything for your lawn can do more damage than good. Usually, we recommend watering in the summer months (June, July, and August) one to three times a week depending on rainfall with deep infrequent watering, just like nature provides.
Weeds in flower or mulch beds should be removed, so their seeds don’t spread into the grass area. Sticks and leaves should also be cleaned up so the grass can get the sunlight and water it needs.

Our slogan “making the grass greener and the environment cleaner” is not just a catchy phrase to market our services, it’s our company’s primary objective. It is who we are and what we do to make our business as environmentally conscious as possible. This Earth Day, we want to highlight the operations we have improved upon and shed light on some areas where we are striving to do better.
Go Green Lawn Services, your go-to company for the best organic lawn care in Montgomery County, PA, started over seven years ago with the idea that we could provide better service with safer, more efficient products. Our supplies are free from unnecessary chemicals that have a negative impact on the health of your soil. We use only the best products, free from traditional chemicals like nitrates and phosphates, for our own families, children and pets, and we extend the same environmentally conscious service to every single customer as well. Often companies use harmful products for a quick fix that is temporary rather than finding long term solutions for healthy soil and a gorgeous, green lawn.
How We Can Help
Not only do we use organic-based fertilizer, grub control, and pH balance, but we also explore ways on the operation side of how we can improve our customer service with the least amount of negative repercussions to the environment. We are able to visit our customers less often than competitive lawn service companies and save fuel, due to our use of products that are effective for longer stretches of time than traditional chemicals.
Looking to the Future
We are switching to paperless invoices with most of our communication through phone or email. We want to get to a point where we don’t use any harmful chemicals in our weed control. In the future, scientific advances will lead to safer organic products for effective crabgrass and nutsedge removal and Go Green Lawn Care, who also specializes in flea treatment for your yard in Newtown, PA, will be at the forefront of the movement. For now, we will continue to use fewer harmful products in safer quantities, as well as practice positive cultural methods, including proper mowing heights and timing, spring and fall cleanups, and fall lawn aerating and seeding.
