Providing Customized, Environmentally Conscious Grounds Management
Interested in learning more about us?
Sound Grounds manages your entire grounds by viewing your property as a whole ecosystem. The trees, shrubs and lawn have to be able to coexist and thrive, not have one plant dominate at the expense of the others. This is where our practice of bringing golf course management methods to your property comes in. We have a comprehensive process of assessing & analyzing your site to gather pertinent information that we use to formulate a management plan. The end result is usually healthier soils, reduced & properly calibrated pesticide & fertilizer inputs, proper irrigation management and overall less potential runoff into Long Island Sound. This is how Sound Grounds accomplishes its mission to provide our clients with distinct, safe and healthy lawns & landscapes for their family, friends and pets to enjoy while being environmental stewards
Sound Grounds was founded in 2010 & reorganized in 2012 based on the premise that lawn & landscape management can be accomplished effectively and efficiently all while being environmental stewards. The name itself is derived from our love and protection of Long Island Sound & our attention to your entire grounds.
Long Island Sound itself encompasses the area between the East River in New York to the Atlantic Ocean, bordering Long Island, Connecticut, and Westchester County, NY. It has much to offer, including its many beaches, natural wildlife habitats, scenery & water activities. A much larger region influences the health of Long Island Sound as seen by its drainage basins below. Unfortunately, due to the large amount of drainage basins that filter into Long Island Sound, it has suffered the effects of pollution that threatens many of its wonderful offerings. Much of the pollution results from excessive Nitrogen entering the waters from sewage, industry & residential runoff. Though much has been done to remediate and reduce overall Nitrogen pollution, it is still estimated that roughly 20% of the pollution, including excess fertilizer & pesticide, comes from residential runoff.
