Spring Secret # 1
How can you reduce chemical fertilizers, prevent weeds, and cut down excessive watering this Spring?
SPRING TOP DRESSING
What will top dressing do for your lawn?
- IMPROVE SOIL HEALTH : Organic compost contains a variety of nutrients, microorganisms, and beneficial bacteria that can improve soil health. Good compost will introduce these elements to your soil, creating a healthier growing environment for your lawn.
- SKIP THE SPRING FERTILIZER : Compost is a natural source of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which are essential for healthy plant growth. By top dressing with compost, you can provide your grass with a natural source of these nutrients without using synthetic fertilizers. (If you seed before hand, it will also greatly reduce the amount weeds you will get this year!)
- INCREASE WATER RETENTION : Compost has the ability to absorb and retain water, making it particularly helpful during all this dry weather we have been having. Reducing water is a huge component of sustainability, and just one compost top dressing reduces the need for frequent watering.
- ENHANCED ROOT GROWTH : Good compost promotes root growth in the grass, and stimulates the growth of microorganisms, which can aid in the uptake of nutrients by the grass roots.
Small yards. Small changes. Big impacts.
