We care for the world around us. Green Turf strives to minimize any negative impact on the environment through all of the work that we do. We take the time and care to plan wisely so that we don’t create environmental issues as a byproduct of our work. We recommend options for our clients that lower their energy usage and in turn, their energy bills. That reduced energy consumption has positive effects for not only our clients, but mother nature too. That’s called paying it forward.
Environmentally friendly solutions to common lawn care issues are available and actually quite affordable. Let the team of experts at Green Turf show you how you can address your lawn’s irrigation, drainage or lighting issues with an environmentally friendly approach.
Adjust your irrigation system as the seasons and weather change, or better yet, install a sensor that automatically detects rain or moisture. These devices are inexpensive and enable you to take advantage of the water without having to pay for it.
Ensure that the right amount of water is applied by using ET-based controls. ET-based controls automatically adjust watering schedules, based on evapotranspiration (ET), which can reduce water use by 20-40%.
New high efficiency nozzles provide more uniform distribution of water, eliminate overspray, use less water and reduce run off. A simple and effective way to be more environmentally friendly.
Rain gardens address the issue of heavy surface runoff in both a practical and aesthetically pleasing way by utilizing the excess rainwater to directly nourish selected plants.
Bioswales offer a way of dealing with heavy rainwater that has a low impact on the surrounding environment. They filter the water naturally through their use of native plants, improving water quality in the area for the long-term.
Rainwater Harvesting Systems
Rainwater harvesting provides the benefit of removing excess rainwater before it does damage, while collecting it for future use, saving you money on your future landscape watering. It’s a win/win.
Utilize rain barrels to prevent damage from excess water and provide extra water to use later. A little gift from mother nature to your garden.
Drip irrigation supplies water directly to plants’ root systems through watering either near to or within the ground, limiting water waste.
Reviews & Testimonials
They were knowledgeable, courteous and kept us updated throughout the entire process. It's so relaxing just stepping out into our back yard, listening to the sound of cascading water, feeding the fish with our daughter or just enjoying the beauty of nature the water feature provides. It's like a mini vacation every time we step outside!
“Just wanted to make sure you all know what a great job Heather did for me yesterday. I needed help understanding your Service Agreement. Heather did a GREAT JOB in helping me understand it and getting everything all set up for the season”
"You have great office people!”
As I'm sitting here on my deck watching my sprinklers and seeing my neighbors stretching hoses with small sprinklers for hours at a time, I know that putting in the sprinkler system is one of the best decisions I made concerning my new house.
And the service? I've never had such professional and personal service in my life. The attention you have given my yard is beyond the call of duty. Answering my texts and questions so promptly is another admiral trait!
This experience has been so positive from our first phone call, the work of your foreman Doug, and of course your continuing checking, even on the weekends!
Thanks for taking good care of my lawn and for reassuring my concerns.
It's so nice to know that there are people like you in the world that take such pride in their work.
I am highly recommending Green Turf to everyone I can.
"Hey maybe you tell me differently but Don (your Foreman) has to be the best person in the irrigation business in St. Louis"
"I called in today and wanted to talk to Rich, to give him more information about my drainage problems in my yard.
Rich is WONDERFUL and come out so quickly and my yard was so wet, he was basically walking on water. I can’t say how thankful I am.”
