Why Natural Fertilizers

Natural versus synthetic chemicals. Ever wonder what’s the difference?

Organic or natural practices emulate nature by building healthy nutrient-rich soils. Nature has powerful checks and balances that work to give you long-term bountiful results with minimal disease, insect and weed problems. It takes patience to go organic as nature does work slowly, but the results are always great.

Synthetic chemicals give you temporary control over your lawn and plants. Fertility is temporarily spiked up for a few weeks with synthetics but overall soil health and fertility declines year after year. Your lawn and turfgrass become chemically dependant, more susceptible to disease, insects and weeds, and soil compaction is inevitable. Of course you can still buy more synthetics to deal with these problems.

Building soil fertility can now be a lot easier. Nurseries & garden centers are now carrying organic fertilizers made from Alfalfa and other natural ingredients that are extremely effective. Natural Fertilizers use the microbes in the soil to break these ingredients down and make them accessible to the plants. Natural Fertilizers do not burn and most lawn fertilizers can also be used on plants.

Natural Amendments are also readily available and are used after a soil test is taken to show deficiencies in the soil.
