Sustainable care

Sustainability

Often the most cultivable land is found in gardens. In south LA, front yards are already being used to grow vegetables.

Now, a startup from Colorado is focusing on backyards. Together with a turf expert, it has developed 45 ecological products for lawn care, all based on natural ingredients such as algae, molasses and iron.

The company is also offering clients the chance to have their garden soil analyzed using aerial pictures or soil samples.

Following analysis, a plan is drawn up, with clients able to purchase various products individually or by paying monthly.

By providing a tailored package, the scheme has helped lawn-owners reduce pesticide use by 16,000 kilograms in a single year.

Healthy growth.
