Healthy Soil = Beautiful Lawn 

Soil is more important to the overall health of your lawn than any other variable. It has been proven time and again that organics suppress fungus and stimulate healthy micro-organisms. By accelerating and stimulating microbial life (the life blood of rich soil), you can reduce thatch maintenance, increase drought tolerance, and insure better long-term health. Getting your soil closer to the optimum organic state will make a lasting difference.
