We. Pull. Weeds.

Yes, we do pull weeds. From the lawn. With our hands. All sorts of weeds: bittercrest, chickweed, creeping charlie, dandelion, henbit, plantain, thistle . . .


Weeds pulled from lawns in Raleigh and Wake Forest
Pulling weeds seems to be an unfamiliar practice these days, and especially for a lawn care company. The gold standard in professional lawn care is to identify the most effective mixture of chemicals to quickly kill everything in the lawn except the grass. We reject this standard because spraying a cocktail of chemicals on lawns where children and pets play is, well, unwise. 

So, at Crownover Green, we are revolutionizing professional lawn care by actually pulling weeds by hand. We do it because it is not only the organic way, which is what we are all about, but it’s also the best way to eliminate weeds from a lawn. There is no chemical that will make a weed disappear quicker than by a pluck with a thumb and forefinger.

There are some herbicides that are much safer than the typical chemical cocktails (a certified organic herbicide, another natural herbicide, and a couple of synthetic herbicides that the EPA classifies as Reduced Risk) and we use them, but judiciously, and with the ultimate goal of developing a thick carpet of grass with so few weeds that they can be easily managed by ongoing hand-pulling.

Pulling weeds . . .
. . . is safe. No harmful chemicals are involved.
. . . is free.
. . . is gratifying. The results are instantaneous.
. . . is really not that hard. Squat, grab, and pull. You should try it sometime.
