Eco Management Consultants - chemical free environmental management consultants
At Eco Management Consultants we strive to find environmentally sensitive and sustainable solutions to damaged landscape and land
Specializing in natural landscape solutions which restore our client's Florida environments to a naturally self-managed chemical-free state. Our client's understand that the landscape maintenance industry uses chemicals to increase their consumables and profits at the detriment to the health of the users, environment, flora and fauna. Properties, parcels and landscapes that are eco-managed are self-sustaining restoring environments to what they once were while removing the dangers of contacting and consuming chemicals.
It is a fact, lawn chemicals are unnecessary and only serve to increase profits of maintenance companies and chemical producing corporations. Historically, organic lawn care has been practiced for much longer than chemical lawn care and it can easily be implemented on any property with a thoughtful and educated action plan. Safe and effective alternatives exist for most chemical pesticides and fertilizers. There is no need to expose our families, communities and local wildlife to chemicals that are known or potential hazards. In fact, the chemicals that are being used to treat landscapes are the root of the problem in most cases.
Chemical pesticides and fertilizers contaminate groundwater and sub-surface resources. Caution, the chemicals that you spray today will be in the water that you consume tomorrow. Lawn pesticides and fertilizers can contaminate groundwater and sub surface resources forever. Everyone in Florida knows the story of Lake Apopka and its chemical contamination issues resulting from agricultural uses. This contamination diminishes the quality of our drinking water and daily use water resources. The quality of aquatic habitats and health of aquatic life forms re diminished or eradicated by chemical applicaitons causing sterile "scorched earth" environments. Most fish and aquatic insect species are highly sensitive to fertilizers and pesticides. Protecting our water resources is not an option, its a necessity.
Chemical pesticides threaten the health of children who frequently play in lawns and areas that have been treated or suffered from overspray of chemicals. Children are the most vulnerable segment of our population due to their small size and their underdeveloped physiology. Children are also often the most exposed to pesticides due to their behavior (plaing on contaminated grass, putting grass, soil and toys into their mouths, and simply breathing in the noxious gas that chemically treated landscapes produce. Increased exposure puts children at an unacceptably high risk from lawn herbicides and pesticides.
Chemical pesticides threaten the health of outdoor pets. Outdoor pets are highly exposed to lawn chemicals due to their behaviour (licking contaminated paws and coat, breathing close to the ground, eating contaminated grass, soil and toys) and are highly vulnerable due to their small size. Pets can transmit chemical residues to rugs, carpets, upholstered furniture and textiles as well as non pourous surfaces. Simply touching a pet that has played on a treated lawn exposes a person to these chemical contaminants. The transfer of chemical resudues to the hand of a person who pets an animal is the beginning of chemical exposure including ingestion.
Chemical pesticides threaten the health of local wildlife. Turf-dwelling and feeding species such as the American robin, Canada goose, American widgeon, European starling, common raccoon and eastern gray squirrel are highly exposed to lawn chemicals. Granular formulations pesticides can severely impact birds that mistake the granules for seed or other food items.
Chemical pesticides and fertilizers reduce the activity of beneficial organisms. Healthy soil is alive with a variety of beneficial organisms that actually kill pest insects, decrease the spread of disease and help plants gather nutrients and water. For example, earthworms improve air and water circulation, decompose thatch, deposit nutrient-rich castings and help to neutralize soil (plants prefer this pH). Many of these beneficial organisms are highly exposed and highly sensitive to lawn chemicals. Pesticides and fertilizers reduce their activity levels, thereby reducing a lawn's natural ability to control pests and diseases, gather nutrients and water and maintain overall health.
Local wildlife need safe places to live. As more and more suburbs encroach upon natural habitats, wildlife are forced to flee or adapt to less ideal, often crowded habitats ripe with potential dangers. Exposure to lawn chemicals is one such danger. Direct exposure to these pesticides and fertilizers is dangerous, as are the effects of chemical use including decreased shelter and food opportunities. We can make our cities and towns more habitable for local wildlife by avoiding lawn and garden chemicals. You may even consider naturalizing a section of your yard to provide a greater diversity of shelter and food types.
Chemical fertilizers are a waste of money. Chemical fertilizers usually contain three macronutrients - phosphorus, potassium and nitrogen. They lack other macro as well as micronutrients and include no organic matter or microbes. In contrast, finished compost from your backyard bin is an organic and natural soil amendment that provides a more complete package of nutrients, organic matter and microbes. Finished compost is a free resource that also constitutes sustainable waste management, extending the lifespan of local dumps and landfills.
Chemical pesticides have the potential to cause damage throughout their lifecycles. All stages of a pesticide's lifecycle - production, transport, storage, use and disposal - have the potential to degrade environmental and human health. Explosions, spills and volatilization may occur in manufacturing plants, storage facilities and en route, exposing potentially huge numbers of non-target organisms to pesticides. Disposal is an expensive and controversial proposition as people campaign to keep stockpiles out of their communities.
Chemicals actually degrade the over-all long-term health of your lawn and garden. Chemical lawn care is the wrong approach as chemicals weaken the un desirable invasive weeds as well as the desirable native and ornamental plantings. By frequently applying pesticides to your lawn, you may create a chemical-dependent landscape. As pest species become resistant to the chemicals designed to kill them, more concentrated doses and frequent applications are required and a never-ending cycle of increasing pest resistance and pesticide use is established. When this happens, your lawn's health is spiraling downhill. Eventually one, then several and ultimately all of your landscape plantings will suffer death from the effects of chemical exposure.
