"We're Reducing San Diego's Carbon Footprint...One Property at a Time"
Providing San Diego with Weekly 'Holistic' Yard & Lawn Care Services
Mission Hills Nursery, Your EcoGardeners of San Diego uses no gasoline-powered polluting equipment and in most cases uses a hand push lawn mower and edger for your lawn. We use brooms to sweep, not loud dusty, noise polluting leaf blowers. We use organic based fertilizers to fertilize your garden, not commercial based high nitrates fertilizers which pollute our beaches. We do not use harmful pesticides and herbicides and we promote Integrated Pest Management (I.P.M.) principles to control unwanted pest and weed growth. We are strong believers in the benefits of compost in your garden to control weeds and reduce pests. We provide expertise in water management for your irrigation system to provide adequate water to your garden and to avoid runoff.
WE DO NOT USE LEAF BLOWERS, GAS POWERED EQUIPMENT NOR CHEMICALS
WE USE ONLY ORGANICALLY BASED PRODUCTS ON YOUR PROPERTY
WE PROVIDE LANDSCAPE DETAILING & PLANTING / IRRIGATION RENOVATIONS
The art of gardening and gardeners have been replaced with landscape maintenance contractors. To make a profit, most companies use cheap labor and chemical dependent methods of every means to get the job done quickly and as cheaply as possible with no regards to the environment or your health. EcoGardeners are concerned about the health and beauty of your garden. We know our methods take more physical effort and can be more time consuming, but you can take pride in the result, knowing your garden benefits you, the environment and shows the way to your community. Let us help you lower your carbon footprint by converting your garden into an EcoGarden.
Our gardens are a part of nature, but the way we have been maintaining them, “Mow Blow & Go”, is harmful to our environment and hazardous to your health. Gasoline-powered lawn mowers represent 5% of the U.S. air pollution and landscape maintenance contractors have spilled more gas than the Exxon Valdez. A gasoline-powered lawn mower generates as much tailpipe emissions in one hour as an automobile does over 350 miles, but just in your garden. Leaf blowers are hazardous to your health and spread dust, dirt, herbicides and pesticides into air, over your cars and into the windows of your home. Leaf blowers whine at 90-100 dB creating noise and dust pollution. Nitrates from fertilizers and pesticides eventually find there way by means of runoff that seriously damage our waterways, beaches and marine life.
