How to Grow a Beautiful Yard Naturally

New Go Green Yard Care program coming this Spring 2023!

Contact Kelsey,, if you have any questions.

Natural yard care makes your yard safer for you, your family, and your pets. It also keeps harmful chemicals from ending up in rainwater runoff which ultimately filters into our groundwater. And that's important because most drinking water in Thurston County (Lacey, Olympia, Tumwater, and unincorporated areas) comes from groundwater.

Success Story: Rapid transformation after 21 years of struggle

"The look and feel of both the dirt surface and the grass itself are so much healthier and prettier than what we had dealt with for the past 21 years. We are grateful for the impetus that the Go Green program gave us to undertake the makeover and for the experience of all the people involved."
