About the Event
Anthony Nied, owner of Safe & Simple Organic Lawns will teach this crash course on what organic lawn care is and why it’s important along with sample programs and DIY tips and practices. Alternatives to conventional lawns including pollinator “bee lawns” as well as xeriscaping, urban meadows and native prairies will also be discussed.
Anthony Nied founded Safe & Simple Organic Lawns in 2018 in pursuit of his mission to improve the quality of life and the planet through organic lawn care. By keeping it simple and focusing on soil health, he developed an annual lawn care program that eliminates all need for pesticides! Healthy soil equals a healthy lawn.
In 2011, Anthony Nied took over the management of the lawn care division for a local garden center which had hundreds of conventional lawn care customers. Anthony graduated from CVTC with an associate degree in Horticulture, Landscape, Plant & Turf Management. With a newborn child at home and the knowledge about the hazards of chemical fertilizers and pesticides fresh in his mind, he knew he had to do something.
Anthony relentlessly researched each organic lawn care product on the market, rigorously testing organic fertilizers and bio-based organic pesticides for effective weed and pest control. He then realized he was making things too complicated. Through his own trials and by researching numerous university studies, Anthony determined that cultural practices like aeration, mowing, and watering play a far bigger role in improving soil health than fertilizer alone. It was time to get back to basics.
