The Northeast Organic Farming Association has a list of accredited landscapers and yard management companies in our area. We would love you to check them out, and tell us what you think in the comments below. We haven’t used these so we can’t recommend but if you’re looking to build your yard rather than poison and drug it to death this is the place to start!
Also there are lots of companies that do not go through the certification process but also use organic integrated pest management. If you find one let us know. Do beware of firms that say “we do it all – organic inorganic and we will do organic if you like” they tend to revert to their inorganic ways quite quickly because they don’t know what they are doing. After a few months they will find a problem they don’t know how to fix and tell you that inorganic is the only option. Then you’re back in the kill-and-drug cycle again, which makes them large profits.
So – check these out and let us know what you find!
