Organic Lawn Fertilizing
Organic lawn fertilizing uses affordable, yet effective, materials to keep your lawn healthy.
Our products are 100% organic and are approved for use in Connecticut. Our organic lawn fertilizing products have been tested and proven to be effective. Organic methods may result in slower results in some lawns than synthetic methods, but the benefits are worth the wait.
Our organic lawn fertilization service is similar in scope to traditional methods, but we use only organic materials:
- Monitoring lawn PH and nutrient levels.
- Handling crab grass pre-emergence with fertilizer in early Spring
- Fertilizing with probiotics and optional weed control in early Summer
- Optional grub and insect prevention in summer. Post control options also available.
- Fertilizer with Probiotics: Late Summer, Early Fall
- Fertilizing with probiotics and optional weed control in late Fall
- Liming as needed, based on soil test results.
Why use organic fertilizer?
Organic fertilizers are “grown” with most organic fertilizers coming from plant sources or, sometimes, manures and other waste streams. This has a much better environmental impact than synthetic fertilizers which are often mined, which can be very destructive to the environment.
Organic fertilizers have a lot of micronutrients along with macronutrients than synthetic fertilizers do. Seaweed, for example, contains over 60 micronutrients, compared to a synthetic that may only have 3 nutrients. This addresses a lot more potential problems, giving you a better, more rounded fertility program. It also helps stimulate biological growth in the soil.
Organic fertilizers usually contain organic matter, which allows better retention of the nutrients in the soil, better soil health, and can stimulate biological growth. This also gives a slower, steadier release.
Because organic fertilizers are intrinsically slow release and have lower N-P-K rates, it is very difficult to over-fertilize with organic fertilizers.
Slower release and better uptake/retention means less runoff to our water systems and less eutrophication/algae outbreaks in our local bodies of water.
Being lower in salt content, you get much less phytotoxicity long-term from organic fertilizers.
