Business Description Michael started Naturally Green in 1989 as a lawn and landscape company that concentrated on reducing lawn sizes, eliminating the use of synthetic pesticides, and incorporating bio controls such as beneficial nematodes. In 2023 he will be focusing on transitioning lawns to native plantings and edible landscapes on urban, suburban, and commercial properties. For the past ten years he has raised about 150 Monarchs each summer from his small city lot. He has also done extensive scouting for Spotted Lanternfly in the Finger Lakes region.
