Ask An Expert Organic Lawn Care Questions


If you are not experienced at all with organic lawn care and the correct use of organic fertilizers, asking an expert for advice is the right choice.

Natural fertilizers (also known as organic fertilizers) include biodegradable compounds such as green manure, animal waste and compost. In other words, the application of any natural organism or element to improve soil fertility is called natural fertilizer. These substances slowly release chemicals into the soil, so they are suitable even for long-term crops such as perennials.

Types of natural fertilizers

  • Organic fertilizers
  • Mineral fertilizers
  • Soil amendments

Natural fertilizers break down according to the rules of nature, and nutrients may not reach the plants as quickly as you would like. Also, you cannot calculate exactly how much nutrients will reach the soil. The results of natural fertilization depend on many factors, such as the weather and the age of the fertilizer.

Organic fertilization can also have implications and effects on the soil: for example, some solutions may attract certain insects, while others can kill them.

Therefore, if you do not have experience, it is quite difficult to find the ideal organic fertilizers for your garden, without the help of an expert.
