Organic Fertilizer

Now is the time to wake up the SOIL!

As we watch our lawns begin to green up and grow enough to mow them, they will benefit from an application of an organic fertilizer to aid in their carbohydrate production.

Since organic Nitrogen requires microorganisms to break it down before it is released to the soil, it will not burn root systems. Application rates are based on how many pounds of Nitrogen per 1000 sq.ft. is desired. The application rates given on the bags of organic fertilizer can be widely interpreted. We recommend ½ pound of Nitrogen per 1000 sq.ft. for a spring application, which may differ from the rates given on the bags. Please consult our staff for recommended rates. If you have a well-drained gravel soil, it would be best to make a few lighter monthly applications than one normal application in the spring.

MicroLife fertilizer contains beneficial microorganisms and mycorrhizae fungi, which aid the plant in water and nutrient uptake. And it is not just for lawns! Fertilize your trees and shrubs and lawns now with MicroLife 6-2-4 or MicroLife Ultimate 8-4-6.
