St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 19, 2009
Pro-Lawns, Inc. an established leader for commercial land maintenance and lawn care in the St. Louis and surrounding areas, is happy to announce that as a result of growing environmental concerns, Pro-Lawns, Inc. has gone green.
Pro-Lawns, Inc. Going Green--What It Means
For Pro-Lawns, Inc., going green means using landscaping, land maintenance and lawn care techniques that keep the protection of the environment in mind. When it comes to landscaping, that means using native plants that work well with the area's natural soil. An added bonus of this is that these plants often use less water, and minimizing water waste is another way that Pro-Lawns, Inc. protects the environment. High-quality water conservation techniques are one big way that Pro-Lawns, Inc. attracts and keeps customers. Their irrigation services use up to 30% less water, which adds up to big savings for Pro-Lawns customers. Pro-Lawns, Inc. also prides itself on using environmentally-friendly fertilizer and pest treatment options.
Pro-Lawns, Inc. Going Green with Green Machines
Another aspect of lawn care and landscape maintenance that can threaten the environment is the use of lawn and landscape machinery. These machines burn fossil fuels, which contributes to air and noise pollution. Pro-Lawns, Inc. frequently takes advantage of opportunities to avoid using heavy carbon-emitting machines. They hand weed when appropriate and use push mowers in narrow areas. Any remaining trimmings or other debris is immediately collected and disposed of in an environmentally-friendly fashion.
Pro-Lawns, Inc. and Irrigation
Poor irrigation can be wasteful, expensive, and result in damage to lawns or landscaped areas. Pro -Lawns, Inc. are irrigation experts, using systems that irrigate in the right areas, not the wrong ones, that don't waste water, and that adequately handle backflow.
Pro-Lawns, Inc. and Snow Removal
People don't generally associate snow removal with green techniques but Pro-Lawns, Inc. does. A major threat to the environment comes from the excess salt that some snow removers saturate the ground with in order to eliminate ice. Pro-Lawns, Inc. adds the patented Ice Ban formula to their salt mixture, an environmentally safe and approved additive that not only melts the snow faster, but dilutes the salt soaked up by the plants in the melted snow so that it is less harmful to that plant life. Pro-Lawns, Inc. also removes the snow piles that result from snow removal techniques which can melt and damage a landscape or lawn.
With a history of over twenty years of service and satisfied customers, Pro-Lawns Inc. offers standard lawn care, as well as irrigation maintenance, landscaping, aquatic control, snow removal and several other services that will ensure a commercial area looks its very best.
