Local sustainable lawn care startup sees record growth

My Organic Turf



A local sustainable lawn care company is thriving as consumer demand for safer, more natural lawn products grows across the Tampa Bay area. Nicholas Bissett, the founder of My Organic Turf, Tampa’s go-to expert for sustainable lawn and pest control that’s better for your family, pets, and the environment, says he gets calls from as far as Miami from concerned homeowners looking for natural alternatives to keep their lawns green. “Over the last two years, we have seen immense growth and have added multiple trucks and routes in order to accommodate the surge of interest in green lawn care.”

Bissett contributes the success to a more educated consumer. “During the pandemic, more people were obviously at home with their families, and playing in their yards. We started to really see this overnight interest in our services and products.”

The cost of having a green lawn has always been associated with a negative environmental impact, with most companies blasting pesticides, herbicides and fungicides while not being concerned with their long-term effects. In fact, every year the American homeowner uses approximately 70 million pounds of pesticides to maintain their lawns. These pesticides are linked to everything from cancer to Parkinson’s disease to ADHD.

Nothing brought the potential danger of their own lawns to the top of consumers’ minds than the highly publicized lawsuit settlements that Bayer, Monsanto’s parent company, has paid out to long-time Roundup customers that developed cancer in 2019.  It was then that Bissett saw a need to provide an alternative. As a father of two girls Bissett simply didn’t believe in exposing his kids and pets to harmful chemicals in the name of having a great-looking lawn.

Bissett founded My Organic Turf to change the industry’s approach to standardized lawn care and pest control. “What people want now,” Bissett says, “is a lawn that is healthy for their children, pets, and the environment.” My Organic Turf is leading the way in providing safer lawns for homeowners. The earth-friendly company researched, vetted, and uses 100% certified organic fertilizers and pesticides, along with the minimum effective dosage of high-quality herbicides to deliver the greenest, most effective lawn care possible.

My Organic Turf is proving you can have a beautiful lawn without compromising your health and the environment.

My Organic Turf offers several services to meet the needs of an eco-conscious homeowner. They are more than lawn care experts. They are fellow parents, pet lovers and environmental enthusiasts. The company has invested heavily in training, certification and research to make sure they are always adhering to the latest standards in green-thinking lawn care. Whether you need lawn and shrub maintenance or pest control, you will have peace of mind knowing that your kids and pets can frolic freely and safely in a yard that won’t be killing you or your family.

The recent growth of Bissett’s My Organic Turf is not surprising, as it comes at a time when Americans are more health-conscious than ever. Isn’t it encouraging to see more people investing in their environment, and not just the short-term effects of a green lawn?
