A Winter’s Tale, February 2024

We work closely with our clients to make sure they’re happy with our work.

January is a pretty reflective time of year for me. In 2023, I returned to Environmental Enhancements after having been gone a few years. But I’m not the only one who’s back—Jimmy and Erika came back, too. Almost everybody on the leadership team has worked with Fred, our president and coach, for many, many years.

As a team, we share a longterm vision and are inspired by the leadership here at EE. Fred has instilled in all of us a sense of purpose for everything we do. We care a lot about our colleagues, and we feel that way about our clients, too.

If you haven’t gotten to know us yet, let’s set up a conversation. We’d love to demonstrate how hard we’ll work to make sure you’re happy with our service—and that you like working with us!

For this month, I’ve collected a few success stories for you to take a look at. These stories are great examples of some of the issues we were able to help our clients with, and how we partner with them to get things done.

If you’e not yet a client of ours, we’d love to take care of your properties in the same way!

Natural Fertilizers, So Exciting!

Fertilizer may sound like a pretty ho hum topic, but not to us. If everybody really knew the role natural fertilizers play in saving the planet, they’d probably talk about it as much as we do!

Organic fertilizers are derived from natural sources like compost and animal manure, and not only do they nurture your turf, they play an integral role in something called carbon drawdown (more about that in a minute).

Unlike synthetic fertilizers that can harm the environment, organic alternatives promote soil health. They support a thriving ecosystem within the soil, enhancing microbial activity and improving nutrient cycling. This not only boosts plant health but also reduces the dependence on chemical solutions to sustain it.

Now, about the carbon drawdown.

By harnessing the power of organic matter, natural fertilizers act as carbon sinks, pulling carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it in the soil. This dual role of promoting healthy landscapes and actively participating in carbon ‘sequestration’ makes organic fertilizers a powerful ally in the fight against climate change.

Watch ‘Jane’s Story‘ to find out more about how this works.

In essence, choosing organic fertilizers isn’t just about growing healthier lawns; it’s a conscious step towards a greener future. By adopting earth-friendly fertilizers, you’re not only nurturing your own properties, you’re contributing to the collective effort to build a more sustainable world as well.

I’d love to tell you about our organic options. Call me or email me!

Warm Regards,
