We value the advocacy of protecting our environment and provide eco-friendly services and products to ensure and preserve the natural beauty of the lawns. Soil nourishment as well as pest control are two such services which require the use of chemicals which can be harmful; and our expertise includes providing these services at the highest level with the least chemical effects.
That is why we recommend that for some customers that you go organic. There is no need to use chemicals that can damage the quality of the soil. If you want to hear a better scenario then how about organic materials which are both pest controllers as well as fertilizers? Here are some examples that you can find in your kitchen.
- As a pest controller, it repels crawlers. Aphids are definitely not a fan.
- As a fertilizer, banana peels are rich in potassium and are great if you plan to plant vegetables and flowers. Our experts suggest that they are in fact best with roses. Fertilizing roses with banana peels make the flower stronger, gives it more flowers and seducing fragrance.
- Crushed egg shells are also a huge deterrent for slugs and snails. They can do damage to their bodies thus they will refrain from your veggies and flowers once hurt.
- Crushing the egg shells and spreading them to your tomato garden makes them sweeter. Egg shells are rich in calcium and are definitely a wonderful addition for vegetables and flowers.
3. Coffee Grounds
Ants and garden bugs are definitely not a fan of coffee grounds. Spread them where there are visible presence of these pests. They also contain Potassium, Phosphoric Acid and Nitrogen . Spread coffee grounds to soil layers of flowers, evergreen plants and berries. They can also be mixed with compost or soak the soil to the mixture of coffee grounds and water.
