Free Soil Analysis for Healthier Lawns


Pure Lawns, Inc., an organic lawn-management company based in Newton, is offering free soil testing and analysis to those who want a healthy lawn without pesticides this summer. Pure Lawns is run by a dedicated team of professionals who are accredited by the Northeast Organic Farming Association and committed to using completely organic products and techniques. “Most people are still not aware of what’s in the chemicals that are being applied to their lawns,” says Pure Lawns owner Peter DiClemente. “Pesticides don’t solve pest problems; if they did, we wouldn’t need to apply them every year. Our philosophy is to create a dense, healthy turf by feeding the soil to make it naturally resistant to pests and disease.”

DiClemente says that while many people may have a good perspective on their personal health, they should be just as concerned about what is happening in their immediate surroundings. “Lawn chemicals are extremely unhealthy to people, pets and the environment, which is why we offer organic lawn care programs that work,” he says.
