A Recipe for the Perfect Landscape

Brad Young had recently moved from the jungles outside of Guyana, South America, to Dallas, Texas, when he purchased Soils Alive, a leading organic lawn care company in the area. It was 2013 and his background up until that point was in healthcare.

Young had a bit of a learning curve when it came to organics. But Michael Bosco, founder of Soils Alive, had created a strong company run by smart, loyal employees, none of whom left when Young took over and all of whom Young gives full credit for Soils Alive’s continued success.

The Katy Trail benefits from a custom soil mixture created by Soils Alive, a sponsor of the trail.  

One expects a bakery to create its tasty treats day-of but not a lawn care company. Yet the team at Soils Alive recognizes that soil needs exactly that—fertilizer so fresh that all living elements in it are still actually alive. Justin Cernoch, Chief Operating Officer of Soils Alive, is the creator behind the company’s ever-changing, never-repeating fertilizer recipes made new every morning.

“We like to keep our landscapes guessing, otherwise it will get acclimated to the fertilizer,” Young says. “Plus, we tailor our recipes to meet seasonal conditions.”

Cernoch creates unique formulas that both cultivate healthy lawns and take into account seasonal conditions. Typically, lawns receive dry fertilizer throughout April and May and again in June and July for seasonal feeding. But with all the rain Dallas has received this past May, Cernoch has had to adjust his recipe as dry fertilizer can be washed away in heavy rains.

Lawn care is a tricky business, with ever changing conditions and many deep-rooted problems. From caring for individual customers to the George W. Bush Library to the Katy Trail, Young, his team, and their innovative organic fertilizer are working to keep Dallas beautiful. For more information: soilsalive.com
