The Grassroots Organic Lawn & Landscapes program encompasses a broad range of resources for professional landscapers and turf managers as well as do-it-yourself homeowners and consumers who want to manage their lawns and fields without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.

Our program is based on soil science, and how healthy soil biology can make lawns and playing fields naturally resistant to both weeds and pests.

Grassroots has been a leader in the field of natural lawn care since our founding in 2000. Since that time we have conducted scores of two-day training programs throughout the Northeast, where hundreds of private landscapers and institutional turf managers have learned the science and practice of natural lawn care.
