Is your lawn perfect?

Bio diversity is perfection.

Several kinds of grass and plant life along with so called weeds

and wild flowers should occupy a perfect plot. Do you have such?

Do you spay weed killers homemade or otherwise thinking you

A spring surprise appears some purple wild flowers!

know better than nature?

Do you get a service that sprays to make your

lawn green and ruins the bio diverse perfection to

replace it with your version of perfection?

So you know perfection huh?

Work with nature not against it then…

you will know perfection.

I mow my lawn, I trim and primp here and there but I try my best and

succeed in working with nature making for quite an array of varied plant

life. Numerous species of ground cover full the land and that is a show nature

chose to do. It is perfection and full of surprises from year to year new wild flowers

show up, new types of grass and plant life all working together symbiotically

creating this wonderful perfection! This bio diversity attracts all sorts of

animals and insects that are visible to the senses and what is not seen in the way

of smaller living organisms are also at work in this perfection that is life! Get out of

the way and let nature create that perfect lawn! Tending to the land in ways of

preserving its unique bio diversity should be a priority in lawn care a service

where less is more, this will serve you and Mother Earth for the highest good!

The soil had to be turned over and over again.

The weeds removed by their roots like bad habits,

yanked and pulled from my very soul.

Just below the surface roots were easily chopped

and cut away with the spade.

This was only a temporary fix at best.

The tap roots run deep, they the source that branch out

to assure their survival. I worked hard in the light of day

 

digging deep into the earth. I followed the rootlets

from their up rooted surfaces to their taproots deep within.

One by one these clusters of tuberous roots were being removed.

The soul turned over and over again cleansed of waste and debris

rooted bad habits removed at the surface and then deeper at their source.

The turning of the soil creates space for air to travel through the earth.

The earth breathes in the same purifying air that we do the toxins released

and dissipated as we exhale them into the flowing wind.

After much aeration, uprooting and cleansing of debris the soils wondrous

matrix is taking foot.

Now we feed the soil.

 

Now we feed the soul.

 

Now we have,

 

some space.

 

for the garden to grow…
