My mother, Pearl, sparked my life-long commitment to protect our Planet Earth. Among all of Earth’s natural beauties, water has always enchanted me the most. Betsy and I live with our daughter, Pearl, on a beautiful pond. Looking out our living room window, I witnessed the environmental damage up close. As I investigated the problem on our little pond, it became clear that lawns (and lawn care) were a primary culprit. The deeper I dug, the more compelling case for change became. So, I set out on an eight year journey to save our pond and in the process found a solution to save our waters and save you money, too!
We Americans love our lawns but we are addicted to high maintenance lawn care. Protecting our waters depends critically on changing how we care for our lawns. With input from independent grass seed scientists, I tested thousands of seed mixes to create a truly low maintenance, patent-pending solution. Once established, Pearl’s Premium rarely, or never, needs watering; grows very slowly and thrives without chemicals. The secret: roots that grow very deep, tapping into naturally-occurring moisture and nutrients to produce a healthy, barefoot soft lawn.
I pledge that Pearl’s Premium will transform your lawn – as it has thousands of lawns. I encourage you to take the Pearl’s Premium pledge to save time, money, water and our Earth!
Our Mission and Vision Statement
Pearl’s Premium grass is dedicated to empowering people around the globe to save water, lower their carbon footprint, eliminate the use of toxic lawn chemicals and live sustainably for the good of people, pets and the planet.
We are deeply committed to the work of reversing climate change, saving water, restoring eco-systems, and re-establishing health to the land, to biodiversity, to ourselves and to the world. We will honor and cherish the earth’s finite resources by educating the public about soil carbon sequestration, water savings, and to one of the most important ways they can help – by the simple act of planting an extraordinary grass that will pull carbon out of the atmosphere and store it in the soil like no other lawn grass. Pearl’s Premium is deeply rooted in the idea and proven science that we can move carbon from the air back into the soil for the health of the planet and every creature on it.
We will continue to educate the public to the dangers of toxic lawn chemicals by way of educational workshops, and by offering alternative solutions. We will advise and partner with individuals, municipalities, universities, cemeteries, golf courses and others around the world to establish safe, sustainable lawns. For inner cities, we will recommend green roofs to help lessen urban heat island effect, improve storm water management, to absorb carbon and release oxygen, and to increase energy efficiency in buildings.
Pearl’s Premium is the most earth-friendly lawn. To date, no other lawn performs like Pearl’s Premium, sequestering huge amounts of carbon, using 75% less water, 75% less mowing and no chemicals to stay green year round. We are the only lawn to receive LEED credits from the US Green Building Council.
We will continue to look for eco-friendly ways to make improvements to our seed mixes for an even better, sustainable lawn that will produce substantial benefits for all living things. As we face unprecedented environmental challenges in the 21st Century, it is crucial that our lawns become a part of the solution for a better climate and a better future.
Pearl’s Premium is dedicated to finding solutions that will address climate change, extreme weather, health, and water issues around the world.
The Secret is in The Roots
The secret is in the roots! Pearl's Premium patent-pending seed mixtures grow very deep roots after one year. As a result, a properly installed and maintained Pearl’s Premium lawn:
- taps into naturally-occurring moisture to minimize watering and better resist drought
- taps into naturally-occurring nutrients to minimize need for chemical treatments
- grows very slowly above ground to minimize mowing
- grows very slowly above ground to minimize nutrient requirements
Jackson Madnick, founder and seed developer, researched grass seed and lawn care for over 10 years to find the best seed varieties and the ideal percentage blends of these varieties to achieve break-through, low maintenance lawn care.
The result is Pearl’s Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed, which is available in three blends:
- Sunny Mixture – for areas in Full Sun to 50% Sun
- Shady Mixture – for areas in Full Shade to 50% Sun
- Sun/Shade Mixture
