Offering you a 5-8 step program especially designed in producing a healthy, greener lawn.
Fertilization is the most important aspect of a turf management program, creating a healthy and attractive turf that is able to withstand invasive weeds and other nuisances. Without proper turf fertilization, your lawn simply cannot achieve all the attributes of a healthy and beautiful lawn including steady growth, rich color, thickness and consistency throughout. By fertilizing grass, damaged lawns (which are caused by weeds and other environmental issues) can begin to be restored promoting improved overall health of the grass and soil.
Important factors of proper fertilization include
- Selecting the right fertilizer.
- Fertility of the soil.
- Specific minerals for growth.
- Specific grass types, both quality and purpose.
- Maintenance and environmental conditions
- Maintenance and application schedules.
We use organic-based fertilizer products which helps keep your lawn safe, greener and healthier.
Proper fertilization specifically blended for your grass is beneficial for your lawn because it promotes deep root growth, conditions the turf to withstand the climate, improves the appearance of the lawn and keeps weeds to a minimum.
We recommend fertilizing your lawn 6 times per year, once every 4-6 weeks, to keep your lawn looking its best year-round. If done properly by our lawn fertilization professional it can have a profound impact on the way your lawn looks all year long, but if done improperly or without the proper products it can lead to lawn problems such as burning or drying out your lawn.
There are three important components to fertilizing your lawn: selecting the right products, applying the right amount of product to your lawn and picking the proper time of year to apply it.
Organic fertilizers are carbon based compounds that increase the productivity of plants.
Organic fertilizers are fertilizers derived from animal matter, human excreta or vegetable matter. (e.g. compost, manure). Naturally occurring organic fertilizers include animal wastes from meat processing, peat, manure, slurry, and guano.
Benefits of Organic Fertilizers
There are many benefits to using organic fertilizer including, but not limited to the following:
- Organic fertilizer is bio-degradable and does not cause environmental pollution.
- Food grown using organic fertilizer is free from potentially harmful chemicals.
- People who consume organic products are less prone to cancer, heart stroke and other diseases.
- Organic fertilizer is produced on locally owned farms in rural areas where employment opportunities are low.
- Organic soil is more sustainable and if used over time the soil will become nutrient rich and will require less fertilizer to maintain itself.
Organic vs. Non-Organic Fertilizers
Going green is more than just a trend, it is a movement all over the world to preserve our natural resources and protect the environment around us. You cannot open a newspaper or turn on the television without hearing about the negative impact of global warming, environmental risks and climate change. Fertilizer is just one of hundreds of products that have been developed to enrich our green life without the potentially harmful chemicals of traditional fertilizer.
Chemical fertilizer also known as non organic fertilizer contains chemical elements that improve growth and productivity of lawns and plants. Natural fertilizers typically contain manure and composts. Modern chemical fertilizers include one or more of the following: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium which are critical to the survival of plants. Secondary ingredients typically contain sulfur, magnesium and calcium.
