I don't know how many ways to say the same thing.

Good cultural methods such as the right plant in the right place, aerating compacted soils, adding organic matter, proper nutrient supplementation, irrigation and mowing all are part of a successful lawn care management program and will help build healthy habitat for beneficial microbes.

Applications of beneficial microbes to harsh environments will at best be a short term solution for a specific problem. But they can begin to modify the soil habitat to favor them.

The best way to succeed with this method is to look at the entire system and make adjustments accordingly. One single action will usually not make much of a difference.
