At Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman, we have an answer for our customers that need a totally non-toxic lawn and landscape service. We use fertilizers that are non-toxic and for our customers that are sensitive to the toxicities of pest control products we are happy to provide our service with non-toxic pest control as well. Unfortunately, non-toxic pest control products are considerably more expensive than their chemical equivalents. Depending on the issue being addressed, some non-toxic products also require multiple applications. It is for these reasons that the cost of the Non-Toxic service offering is higher. It is our hope that as more non-toxic pest control products are developed, the cost of these products will be reduced and non-toxic service will be affordable for more people.
Customers who have made a significant investment in their lawn and landscape typically choose our Platinum service program. In this program you will receive Aeration/Overseeding, Grub Prevention, Lawn Disease Prevention, and Lawn Insecticide along with 7 Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman lawn fertilizer and weed control treatments. The 7 lawn treatments are 4 to 6 weeks apart during the growing season. The Platinum program also includes tree and shrub fertilizer with insect and disease control.

Lawn and Landscape Evaluation
Your Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® Licensed Service Provider will begin the service call by walking your property and examining the condition of your lawn, landscape plants, shrubs, and trees. They will note any problems that have arisen since your last service call that need to be addressed.
Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman Soil Amending Fertilizer Application
Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® soil amending fertilizer is applied to your lawn. This application is customized to your lawn dependent upon turf type and time of year. When the soil is cool and less active, we apply more plant nutrients. When the soil is warm and active, we apply more soil amendments, which build topsoil and soil fertility so your lawn and landscape will stay healthy and happy until your next service call.
Turf Pre-Emergent Weed Control Applications
All Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® service plan options include pre-emergent herbicide applications. These herbicides prevent crabgrass and the germination of broadleaf weeds. We use pre-emergent herbicides that provide the maximum control with minimal environmental impact.
Turf Post-Emergent Weed Control Application
Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® Licensed Service Providers observe “Least Toxic” Best Management Practices (BMP’s). This means we use environmentally sensitive post-emergent herbicides on a where, when, and only as needed basis. Unless absolutely necessary, we avoid the broadcast application of these chemicals which minimizes the environmental impact of these products.
Turf Insect Control Application
While insecticides are a necessary component to proper turf management, many contain chemicals that can damage beneficial soil organisms and reduce soil fertility. As with herbicides, Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® Service Providers observe “Least Toxic” BMP’s for the application of insecticides. By following these “Least Toxic” BMP’s we minimize the environmental impact of these products and the potential health hazards to people and pets.
Turf Disease Control Application
There are a number of diseases that can affect different varieties of turf grasses. As with herbicides and insecticides, Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® Service Providers always seek to avoid a broadcast application of fungicide products. The regular Lawn Evaluation at your service call increases the chance that we will catch a lawn fungus in its early stages and be able to “spot treat” the problem rather than having to broadcast apply a treatment. This significantly reduces the amount of damage that your lawn will sustain from turf diseases.
Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® Shrub & Landscape Bed Fertilizer Application
The plant nutrition needs for shrubs and Landscape bedding plants are different from those of turf grasses. For this reason, Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® Service Providers have a specially formulated fertilizer that will produce healthy plants and beautiful flora and fauna.
Shrub & Landscape Bed Pest Control Application
Shrubs and Landscape Bedding plants all can suffer from insects and diseases. Just like with turf, our goal is to identify insect or disease pressure and take care of it in its early stages to reduce the amount of potential damage and the amount of chemicals required to solve the problem. This is the fundamental reason for the Complimentary Emergency Service on our Non-Toxic, Platinum, and Gold service plans.
Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® Tree Fertilizer Application
Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman feeds trees all of the nutrients they need through trunk and foliar feeding. Through this type of application, the special blend of nutrients and supplements are absorbed into the circulatory system of the tree where they do the most good for the health of the tree.
Your Bio Green of Charlotte/Lake Norman® Service Provider is always happy to take the time to speak with you about the health of your lawn and landscape and about the products used or the services provided.
Complimentary Emergency Service
We can’t always be there when an insect infestation occurs. It is for that reason that we provide complimentary emergency service for our Non-Toxic, Platinum, Gold Service, and Nutrition Plan customers.
48 Hour Service Guarantee
If you call us for service, we promise to be there within 48 hours. This promise applies to all service calls including complimentary emergency service.
We also promote cultural practices to control weeds, pests and disease and follow least toxic pest control best management practices; we also offer non-toxic pest control.
