Benefits of Organic Liquid Fertilizer
Whether you are starting a new lawn or trying to breathe new life into an older lawn, organic liquid fertilizer can help. Organic liquid fertilizer is easier for your soil to absorb because it sinks into the soil and reaches the grass roots where it is needed. Dry fertilizers can be washed off your lawn if you happen to get a heavy rain after applying them. Liquid fertilizers immediately absorb into the soil making it less likely that they will be washed away.
An organic liquid fertilizer like High-Traffic Blend can be especially beneficial if you are trying to restore a damaged lawn. It can help you reduce the brown spots in your lawn associated with heavy traffic, such as a path that your children take repeatedly or even an area close to a sidewalk that pedestrians cross instead of staying on the walk way. Too many people walking over the same area can damage the grass and make it die off without proper care.
A blend like Winter Fertilizer is an excellent choice in the fall. Fall fertilizing helps to ensure that your lawn has all the nutrients it needs to withstand cold weather. Applying organic liquid fertilizer in the fall can help reduce the work you will need to do in the spring to ensure that your lawn starts out healthy and strong. An added benefit of fall fertilization is that it can reduce the number of weeds that plague your lawn.
Grass generally begins to sprout and grow faster than weeds do in the spring. Fertilizing in the fall gives your lawn the needed food to grow faster and thicker in the spring. Thicker grass prevents the weed seeds from receiving the sun they need to sprout and reduces the number of weeds in your lawn. The best reason of all to use an organic liquid fertilizer is that it is safe for your children, pets, and the environment.
Organic liquid fertilizers contain natural ingredients that are combined to improve your soil. They replace necessary nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus in your soil. As grass grows, it pulls these nutrients from the soil. This means that in order to maintain a healthy lawn you need to keep replenishing the nutrients; the good news is that these liquid fertilizers are very easy to apply to your lawn. Whether you are using a fall fertilizer or adding a summer application to spruce up your lawn, all you need is a spray attachment for your garden hose.
If your lawn has gone for several years without being fertilized then you may want to consider a combination of fall and summer fertilization. It is likely that many of the nutrients that your lawn needs have been depleted in your soil. You may want to do a fall application of Mineral Blend if you have been using a chemical fertilizer. This can replace the natural minerals that your soil should have. Often chemical fertilizers do not include these essential minerals.
