Organic Lawn Fertilizer: So Safe, You Could Eat It

In direct response to the rise in instances of harmful effects of pesticides to dogs, High Profile Green
Solutions began using completely edible and organic lawn fertilizers.

Minneapolis – February 2017: Many people don’t realize the potential harm in exposing their four-legged family members to environmental toxins such as the chemicals contained in herbicides.

When a dog is exposed to a pesticide, the chemical residue collects on their feet and coat. It is then
tracked indoors, deposited on multiple surfaces throughout the home and can contaminate the
entire family.

Dog eat grass

A recent study conducted by the Quebec Institute of Public Health found that 98.7 percent of dogs exposed to pesticides had residual chemicals in their urine. These chemicals are known to increase the risk of cancer and other fatal diseases by as much as 70 percent. Unfortunately, it can be quite difficult for people to avoid applying pesticides to their lawn with such a lack of organic options on the market.

“This study brings up the obvious question – what is the acceptable level of pesticides in your pet’s body?” explained Kim Kalan, the Director of Sales at High Profile Grounds Maintenance. “We believe the answer is none. We are proud to provide a wide range of organic lawn care services and products that are able to create lush, green grass without resorting to traditional EPA-registered chemicals.”In 2016, Minneapolis-based High Profile Grounds Maintenance, Inc. decided to go green and began offering 100 percent organic lawn fertilizer programs.

The new High Profile Green Solutions division is dedicated to selling and applying lawn fertilizer products that will not harm the environment or non-intended targets. Their organic lawn fertilizer formula is made from completely edible ingredients and has proven safe for animal consumption.

Before – Yard had weeds and creeping Charlie

AFTER – Weed buster & 1 application AG Lime. Time period is after approximately 2 weeks. A standard program consist of 3 applications of weed buster spaced approximately 2 weeks apart.

In hopes of further encouraging people to begin using organic lawn fertilizer, High Profile Green Solutions has partnered with local dog rescues to raise money and incite awareness surrounding the harm of pesticides on pets. The company is asking members of the community to donate $5 towards a non-profit dog rescue in exchange for a $40 gift card towards organic lawn fertilizer services from High Profile Green Solutions.

High Profile Green Solutions Tells Mosquitoes to “BUZZ” Off With 100% Edible Organic Spray

Organic Lawn Care Company Offers Non-Chemical Mosquito Control Along with Education for Cultural Control and Prevention of Mosquito Infestation

Minneapolis, MN – June 6, 2016 – There is nothing worse than planning an outdoor event and unwanted guests arrive; especially when all they do is suck you dry. Mosquitoes have nasty habits of buzzing around; causing itchy bites and transmitting disease such as the Zika virus.

John Kalan, the founder of High Profile Green Solutions states that “To ensure the safety of family, friends and pets, it’s extremely important to make sure you are taking the proper steps in control.”   HPGS works hard to educate its customers on the proper steps to reduce mosquito breeding through water management and source reduction and also spraying to repel adult populations.

Enjoy the outdoors this summer and help stop the spread of mosquito/tick-borneillnesses by following these tips from High Profile Green Solutions (HPGS) to prevent mosquito infestation and to gaincontrol of an existing problem:

  • Since many mosquitoes breed in standing water, source reduction can be as simple as emptying water from containers around the home. This is something that homeowners can accomplish. For example, homeowners can eliminate mosquito breeding grounds by removing unused plastic pools, old tires, or buckets by clearing clogged gutters and repairing leaks around faucets; by regularly (at least every 4 days) changing water in bird baths and by filling or draining puddles, swampy areas and tree stumps. Eliminating such mosquito breeding areas can be an extremely effective and permanent way to reduce mosquito populations without resorting to insecticides. [Wikipedia 2016] Remember to irrigate lawns and gardens carefully to prevent water from standing for several days.
  • Subscribe to monthly treatments of “Skeeter Beater” by HPGS to discourage mosquitos from invading your backyard and establishing a breeding ground.
