We have talked about this topic much in the past. Regionally it is interesting to see which areas are finding success switching to a more organic business. Here is one in the Chicago area that has done just that and found success.

Having a green lawn is about more than its color - Replacing toxic pesticides with organic fertilizers made from feed-grade nutrients, such as alfalfa, has become an increasing trend among Illinois suburban households, according to Bill Scheffler, horticulturalist and owner of Pure Prairie Organics, an organic lawn care service based in Wheaton.

“There is more interest in green initiatives and global warming. My clientele has increased from about 300 to 400 in the past three to four years.”

Marny Turvill, a business-owner and pediatrician in Evanston is switching to a new organic lawn care service next week. She said several health concerns turned her against chemical fertilizers.
