Science is great. Improvements over the past few years have lead to a boom in organic lawn care advancements. Areas like Denver and Boulder have been readily accepting of being eco-friendly, going green, and using organic fertilizers. We love our state, our mountains, our homes, and the land enough to take the time and effort to care of it right. At My Landscaper LLC, we know the benefits being environmentally conscious about the lawn fertilization products we use, and the services we provide. We take the same care and effort in our work as you do in your home.
Here are just a few of the benefits to using organic lawn fertilizer:
- Completely Safe for People, Pets, and the Environment – Because organic treatments contain no chemicals, they have no adverse effects on earthworms or the good bacterium that helps your grass grow naturally healthy and green. There are zero adverse effects from any living creature coming into contact with organic fertilizer. Even with soil and water runoff, the organic matter is not harmful to fish or other wildlife because there are no bio-hazardous materials like nitrogen involved.
- Improved Lawn Health – Organic fertilizer stays in your lawn longer than chemical brands. While these chemicals get washed away with watering and rain, organic lawn treatments continue to enrich the soil and encourage growth, releasing carbon dioxide and greatly aiding in the process of photosynthesis. This also strengthens your lawns natural defense against harmful pests and diseases. By doing things the organic way, your lawn will flourish in a vibrant green and lush bed of grass your family can enjoy throughout the Colorado summers.
- Soil Health and Root Growth – Using organic lawn treatments on your yard slowly releases naturally occurring nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus into the root system. Absorbing these in small quantities results in better, stronger roots growing thicker and greener. Your soil quality will also increase in texture because your lawn will retain moisture longer.
- Ingredients – Just looking at ingredients in Organic vs. Inorganic fertilizers is enough to let you know which products are best to use. Inorganic lawn treatments contain things like ammonium sulfate, potassium nitrate, superphosphate, potassium chloride, and potassium sulfate. All of these manufactured chemicals are harmful to people, the environment, pets, and other wildlife. Organic systems contain ingredients like seaweed meal, cottonseed meal, humus, fish emulsion, compost, alfalfa meal, bone meal, and other naturally occurring components that are decomposed by microorganisms in the soil.
Natural, safe, and eco-friendly are the future of lawn care, design, and development. We are lucky to be in the Denver area, where the residents hold these attributes in high regard. Having a beautifully crafted and cared for lawn doesn’t have to mean being environmentally insensitive as well. You can check out our gallery
