I am often asked what do we do during the winter months at GrowinGreen. The first thing that I must make clear is that the environment and educating our employees is our top priority! I am asked about this often and especially when there is snow on the ground.
One thing that makes us unique is that we do not mow, landscape or remove snow like most traditional companies in our industry. Year round, we remain focused on the services we do offer. Not only are we extremely busy with our current services, but we believe that this narrow focus allows us to be the best in our industry. Instead of having to constantly shift gears, we are able to stay focused on the little things that make us stand out above our competitors.
We invest a lot of resources into the tools that are required to provide the best lawn care. We want to ensure that our employees are the most qualified professionals as well as have access to the best equipment in the industry. While we constantly train throughout the year, the winter provides the best time to truly engage in training so that we can produce the best product for our customers.
We recently attended a training seminar to learn about pesticide safety. This included the safety of our bee population. The concern about the declining honey bee population, also known as pollinators, has been a recent topic in the news. GrowinGreen is committed to protecting our environment and the beneficial creatures that make nature work in harmony. A healthy lawn and landscape can not only be achieved while protecting the environment but it can also improve upon it. We have used the data from these trainings to adjust our programs. We want to reduce the risk to our pollinators by adapting newer, safer technology. This includes focus on the timing of application for harmful insects so that the hard working pollinators are not affected.
Ask your lawn care company what they are doing to protect our environment. GrowinGreen’s mission is to inspire you to love your lawn again and protecting our environment is where it all begins!
