All things considered, we had a pretty awesome summer in terms of weather. Your children probably had a great time running through the sprinklers, rolling around in the grass and doing cartwheels, and playing fetch with the dog. While this is great for your children (and your pets!), your lawn needs some love so that it can spread its roots and gain its strength for the winter months. That “love” it needs includes aeration, overseeding, and topdressing. read more →

(or, why knowing the pH balance in your Omaha lawn is important)
Ever wondered why your lawn doesn’t look amazing, even though you pay good money for lawn care services? The pH level could be the culprit (or at least one of them)! If the pH level in your lawn is not at the optimum level, fertilizers will not break down to be utilized by the grass. What this means is that if your pH level is off, you are literally losing money because the fertilizer you are putting down (and paying for!) is not being utilized efficiently and going to waste. read more →

As we are moving through lawn care season, people have been asking us, “What does organic lawn care mean, exactly?” We thought it was a good time to fully explain what organic lawn care is and why we heavily promote it here at Paradise Lawns!

Why is my lawn turning white?
I could try making some witty joke about how after a while, your lawn starts to age just like we do (get it? gray hair?), but that wouldn’t be funny OR the truth. Having a white lawn isn’t something to be concerned about–it actually means the product we just put down is doing its job! read more →
They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, right? We know that you take special precautions with your pets to keep them healthy and happy. Did you know that you can use your yard to help prevent an ant, flea, and tick outbreak as well?
Using your yard for ant, flea, and tick prevention
Just as you replace your pet’s flea and tick prevention collars, you can also use your yard as a prevention method, too! We use a safe ant, flea, and tick prevention product called Cedar Oil to treat our clients’ yards for these pest-y insects. While ants are mostly just a bother, fleas and ticks are expert carriers of diseases. The more prevention early on, the less hassle later.
Use of Cedar Oil for ant, flea, and tick prevention
Paradise Lawns is proud to carry an OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute)-approved Cedar Oil to use in our organic lawn care services in the Omaha metro. Each Cedar Oil treatment lasts about 4-6 weeks, so we will bid your yard with this in mind. It’s especially beneficial for your family if you choose not to use flea and tick collars for your pets. Having a safe, chemical-free way to guard your home against ants, fleas, and ticks is possible–and you can use your own lawn as your first line of defense!
