Organic Lawn Care » Submit Content Online | Free Article Directory | Add Articles Tweet Organic lawn care is becoming increasingly popular in the Raleigh , Apex, and Cary area of North Carolina, as well as all around the country. Why are people using natural fertilizers and soil conditioners instead of chemicals on their lawns?

Organic lawn care is concerned with creating healthy soil. Anything will grow well in healthy soil. Today’s advanced turf species are very aggressive, and will outperform weeds and resist disease and pests if given good, healthy soil. Adding organic fertilizers and soil conditioners is the best way to create healthy soil, whereas adding chemical fertilizers creates unhealthy conditions in soil. Let’s see why.

The addition of natural ingredients increases microbial activity. Microbes in the soil fix the nutrients that plants need for growth and are released slowly and as needed by the plants. Petrochemical fertilizers, however, are often high in soluble salts, which are detrimental to plants and soil microbes , thus decreasing microbial activity and plant nutrient uptake. Even high-analysis N-P-K chemical fertilizers have very low plant-use efficiency. Organic fertilizer nutrients such as fish emulsion and kelp release slowly, which minimizes the environmental impact on local streams and wells.

Natural soil fertilizers and conditioners like Fish and Kelp help lawns develop deep root systems with proportional top growth by supplying nitrogen as part of a balance of nutrients. Due to its balanced growth, the natural lawn resists disease, insects and drought much more successfully than high-input lawns do. Naturally-managed lawns cycle nutrients efficiently, preventing thatch buildup. In fact, recycling thatch actually gives the lawn an extra two pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet over the growing season – a nice little boost. Finally, natural lawns require less mowing than high-nitrogen lawns.

Chemical lawn care practices cause inefficient nitrogen usage because of micronutrient deficiencies. Turf takes up micronutrients and nitrogen in fixed proportions, so when nitrogen is abundant , micronutrients need to be, also. Chemical lawn care practices cause inefficient nitrogen usage because of micronutrient deficiencies. Turf takes up micronutrients and nitrogen in fixed proportions, so when nitrogen is abundant, micronutrients need to be, also. Most commercial fertilizers don’t supply micronutrients, so lawns will not use all the supplied nitrogen because of the lack of the proper proportion of micronutrients to nitrogen.

The fixation and release of nutrients and thus soil fertility in naturally managed lawns is regulated by microbes in the soil. Nutrients not taken up immediately by the lawn are stored and slow released in proportions that promote healthy growth.[]

The natural soil conditioner that we at Carolina Organic Lawns use, contains kelp and fish, potent macro and micronutrient sources. Many of the nutrients are in chelated form which holds them in reserve until needed. Plants get the nutrients they need when they need them.

Nitrogen in chemical fertilizers is supplied as a salt. Salts are dissolved quickly in the soil, causing a weed-encouraging nitrogen spike that specifically favors crabgrass.

Nitrogen spikes cause excessive top growth in lawn grasses instead of the storing of carbohydrates. Low carbohydrate reserves in lawns damage lawns during drought and stress.

Fertilizer that is released rapidly allows nitrogen to leach through the soil , which pollutes wells, surface and ground water. Nutrients supplied by natural fertilizer, soil conditioners and compost tea are organic compounds such as proteins and carbohydrates. These are water insoluble compounds which are held in the soil until they are digested by microbes and other organisms, “time-releasing” plant nutrients with no leaching and no pollution.

Salt-based fertilizers reduce soil microbe and earthworm populations, reducing nutrient cycling, decreasing soil organic matter content, increasing soil compaction and damaging soil structure. Compost tea and natural fertilizers and soil conditioners restores soils to their natural nutrient balance, encouraging earthworms and beneficial soil microbes to repopulate the soil, loosening soil structure and increasing nutrient cycling.

Organic Lawn Care concentrates on developing healthy soil. Our organic method stimulates growth of beneficial bacteria , fungi, nematodes, microbes and earthworms, creating a rich, healthy soil. Healthy soil grows healthy lawns!

Your lawn will develop a stronger, deeper root system when properly aerated and conditioned. Your turf will be more heat and drought resistant and better able to take up nutrients and oxygen from the soil. This stimulates lateral growth, creating a thicker lawn, better able to crowd out weeds and needing less frequent mowing. Chemical fertilizers promote vertical blade growth, so that more frequent mowing is needed.

Harvard University has been testing Organic Lawn Care on Harvard Yard. Check out the results! Chemically maintained turf on left: shallow root system. Organically maintained turf on right: deep root system.

What’s Wrong with Commercial Fertilizers?

High nitrogen , synthetic fertilizers increase disease, pest infestations, weed problems, and cause stress on plants and seedlings. Excess nutrients, available for a short time, induce quick top growth. Your lawn absorbs the chemicals quickly and uses the excess energy for rapid growth above the soil instead of storing carbohydrates. The excess nitrogen leaches away through the soil, polluting wells, surface water and ground water, and leaves behind salts that toxify the soil , reducing microbe and earthworm populations.
