Today organic lawn care treatment has gained popularity and acceptance because of the ‘eco-friendly green movement’ as well as because of the inherent benefits that stem from organic lawn care. Maybe organic fertilizers are a bit slow-acting, but they have a surer way of acting more beneficently. Today more and more people are switching over to organic lawn care. Following is a list of benefits derived from using organic lawn care treatment.
Prepare the Lawn for Organic Products
There are so many benefits—to the grass, to the soil, to the humans and pets and to environment that organic manure automatically scores over the chemical fertilizers. But before doing the switching, it is best to get rid of all the weeds, pests and other problems in your lawn.
Root Growth Improvement
Organic lawn care treatments release nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium very slowly and the grass roots absorb them slowly and in small doses. This results in the roots growing better and stronger. Also the roots are more fibrous in nature with the result of a better-looking turf.
Improves Soil Health
Organic care will make the soil retain the moisture longer, aerate the soil better, improve the texture of the soil, enrich it and make the soil less tight and packed. The soil gets more porous, crumbly and loose.
Organic fertilizer is made from totally natural products. It is fully biodegradable and no harmful chemical residue is left behind.
Safe for Ecology of the Soil
Organic lawn treatment does not destroy the microbes and other organism that exist in the soil and it does not harm the beneficial earthworm, fungi and other good bacteria which help the plants and grass greatly.
Safe for Humans and Pets
Organic treatment does not produce any harmful side effects on the human beings or pets who use the lawn.
Less Pollution of Soil and Water
The organic manure is not harmful to fish, wildlife or other animals essentially because there are no concentrated excretions of nitrogen, etc, which are bio-hazardous to wildlife, fish etc.
Stays Longer in the Soil
While the chemical fertilizer gets washed away with excess watering or during rains, organic lawn treatment remains in the soil longer enriching the soil.
Improves Grass Quality
Organic treatment not only makes the grass look lush, green and thick, it strengthens its inherent defense function making it less vulnerable to pests and diseases.
No Overfeeding or ‘Burning’
These are hazards that can happen with chemical fertilizers which cannot happen with organic fertilizers. The chemical fertilizers overload the grass with nutrients which is more harmful.
Helps in Photosynthesis Process
Organic lawn manure releases carbon-dioxide which helps in photosynthesis process.
Organic lawn care treatment is a better way of making the grass healthy and increase the vitality of soil and turf—keeping the grass free of disease and pests. It makes for a happy mixture of environmentally healthy and harmonious way to care for the lawn in the most natural way.
