Questions About The Organic Fertilization & Weed Control Program

Here is a list of questions you may be wondering when looking to go with the Organic fertilization & weed control program.

Can you control weeds?

Yes, in an organic program we apply pre and post-emergent organic weed control. We want you to understand that depending on your existing soil conditions your lawn may take longer to be corrected. 

Why do I need a soil Test?

We soil test to make sure we are accurately treating your soil and provide you with a customized organic program. Unlike conventional programs that apply the same program to each lawn we know not every lawn should be treated the same way!

As a granular with a broadcast spreader.

How does your organic fertilizer compare to chemical fertilizer?

Most companies use fertilizers that are composed of water-soluble nitrogen. This is quickly available to the plant and released into the lawn. These fertilizers will quickly green up the lawn, but they will not help it stay green without frequent applications. It is almost like giving the lawn a shot of steroids. Our nitrogen is water insoluble. This means it is slow release and only releases nitrogen as beneficial microbes in the soil break it down; the lawn stays green for a longer period of time, which is better for the lawn. Organic fertilizers also stimulate microbial activity which is beneficial in preventing fungus invasions and decomposing thatch.

Scott’s fertilizer is derived from urea, ammonium nitrate, and sodium nitrate, which are all synthetically derived nitrogen sources.

Can you fertilize in the summer I have heard you can’t?

This is true if you are using water-soluble nitrogen products like Scott’s, but our products are insoluble nitrogen sources which will not burn a lawn. In fact, we find that lawns do need fertilizer in the summer because of the increased stress involved with the excessive heat. We also apply fertilizers with more humate and yucca extract in the mix during the summer. Yucca and Humate aid in the lawn’s ability to fight heat and drought stress.

Is Organic spot spraying safe? 

Organic spot spraying is derived from citrus oil. We recommend keeping off the area until the product has dried.
