Boulder Embraces Organics


Considered to be one of the “greenest places to live in America” by numerous publications, the city of Boulder appears poised to live up to its reputation with garden to lawn care.

“It’s exciting out there, it really is,” said nationally recognized organic turf expert Chip Osborne of Osborne Organics of Marblehead, Mass., after his recent visit as a consultant to the city of about 90,000.

In September, I’ll be heading out as a guest of EcoLogical Lawn Care, the newest SafeLawns Approved organic lawn care company — the first from Colorado. The date is Sept. 23 at 6 p.m., although venue details are still being finalized.

“The desire is out here, but we customers still need to understand the process,” said John DiFilippi, who launched into organic lawn care after concerns about safety issues associated with traditional chemical treatments.
