Organic Solutions for Home and Business Gardens

Manuel Valdez, owner and operator of MPV Organic Lawn Care, in Naples, offers organic solutions for planting, caring for and maintaining gardens for area homes and businesses. His mission of nurturing the planet one lawn at a time is deeply personal. “I became organic on January 15, 2017 with the passing of my father. He had dementia, the second stage of alzheimer’s,” he says. “I looked up the most likely source, and it was the food toxins.”

“Many people realize that we have a lot of environmental problems, but [may believe] there’s no real starting point. By starting a garden in your own yard, I can help with this with a foundation being the highest quality of soil, including the presence of earthworms and the most natural mulch as possible, and I lead by example,” explains Valdez, who restarted his mother’s organic garden after it was destroyed by Hurricane Irma and has maintained it ever since.
