Earth Kind Services, in Denton, Texas, is into organic composting in a big way and wants to enable homeowners to apply a topdressing to their lawns that feeds the microbes in soil to release the nutrients to their landscape Owner Beau Propes recently finished the Earth Kind short course at Texas A&M and states, “I wanted to start a local service business that would bring a great organic alternative for landscapes.
I have 25 years in landscape management, and for the last 11 years I owned and operated a lawn fertilizing and shrub/tree care company.”
He uses organic, eco-friendly products and a specialized spreader that allows topdressing lawns much better than just by wheelbarrow and raking. Propes notes, “Many people are looking at organic solutions for their landscape. They want to feel good about what they put on their lawns that their kids and pets play on. Anyone that wants to have a more drought-tolerant, pest and disease resistant lawn would enjoy our service. ”
Earth Kind Services does all the hard work and delivers mulch and Dyno-dirt, too. But their main specialty is topdressing with organic compost and consulting for landscape issues. Propes describes his service as a great value, with cost of about $99 per 1,000 square feet. The larger the area, the more the rate goes down. “It’s a great value since we deliver, spread and clean up, too, ” he says.
The business is new, but as they grow Earth Kind Services wants to offer beneficial insects, nematodes and earthworms for sale that will be shipped directly to the homeowner.
