Organic Lawn Fertilizer

Organic lawn fertilizer aids in the growth of a lush lawn and healthy soil without harsh chemicals. It's also suitable for children and dogs as it has no harmful ingredients. Typically, when homeowners learn about the environmental impact of these choices, many opt for chemical-free lawn care. So they can maintain their grass without introducing potentially dangerous substances into the soil and water. While each alternative has its advantages and disadvantages, deciding which to use on your lawn takes some understanding of how fertilizers operate and all plants' nutrients. Organic fertilizers are extremely popular amongst homeowners because of the numerous potential benefits to the soil. Here's what you should know if you're thinking of using organic fertilizers this season.

Organic lawn fertilizers are natural products that help maintain a healthy lawn.

In addition to providing nutrients, the organic matter remains in the soil and decomposes to enhance soil structure.
