All About Organic Lawn Fertilizer
Fertilizers are used to provide essential nutrients to plants. It feeds your plants while building soil. All fertilizers, whether organic or chemical, contain three essential nutrients to plant growth:
- Nitrogen: Helps keep crops green and assists in plant productivity
- Phosphorus: Helps plants convert sunlight and other nutrients into food
- Potassium: One of the most abundant elements available, potassium is imperative to healthy plant growth
Benefits of Organic Fertilizer
Organic materials stimulate beneficial soil microorganisms and improve the structure of the soil, giving it a loose, airy consistency and allowing it to hold more moisture and nutrients. Soil fed only with chemicals can experience structure deterioration over time, which causes it to lose its organic matter and microbiotic activity. It’s less capable to hold water and nutrients, resulting in the need to be fed more frequently.
Organic matter nurtures a plant’s growth by promoting healthy root development. Soil microbes help convert organic fertilizers into soluble nutrients that the plant absorbs as food. It provides secondary and micro-nutrients your plants need. While it typically contains less nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium than chemical-based fertilizer, it can feed plants for a longer period of time. It tends to takes longer to work, but the long-term rewards are worth it. You can feel confident in the environment you are creating for your kids and pets.
