My name is David Gordon, and I started Newton Organic Lawn Inc. out of my desire to have an Organic Lawn. After becoming a bit obsessive about my own lawn, as well as learning all I could about Organic Lawn Care, Newton Organic Lawn was born. It has become a labor of love.
I live in Newton and have quickly gained a reputation for exceptional results. A landscaper said to me recently: " I have been doing this for 25 years and I can't get my grass to grow like yours."
My view is to not take shortcuts and maintain strong attention to detail. I source the best materials that I can find from local suppliers such as Allandale Farms and Needham Garden Center. Newton Organic Lawn is a member of Green Decade. Green Decade is a non profit that promotes sustainable solutions for the 21st century.
I believe in ongoing contact with clients whether it's about watering, the weather, maintenance schedule, recommendations, and what has been done to their lawn.
Organic lawn care is hard work. I feel good knowing that my effort is helping to make the world a better place by saving water, making properties healthier, and contributing to a safer environment. I also love the joy that people get when their lawns become transformed. My clients see noticeable improvements each season. Their lawns are greener and more robust than their neighbors and they feel really happy that they are not exposing their families and pets to unhealthy lawn chemicals.
If you are planning to switch to Organic, please stop all chemical fertilizer, herbicide, and chemical grub control treatments immediately.
I am fortunate to have many references who attest to the quality of my work. I work with all budgets.
I look forward to offering my finest services so that you will have no hesitation referring friends to Newton Organic Lawn.
