FAQ and a few things to keep in mind about Organic Lawncare:

Organic lawn care is mostly about feeding the soil and improving the soil food web.

Organic lawn care is mostly about feeding the soil and improving the soil food web.  There is plenty of information on the soil food web, and the NRCS is one of the best starting places.  Over time as your soil base improves your lawn will thrive, grass will grow much thicker and become more resistant to weather, weeds or other pests.

Application rates for Organic fertilizers are higher than traditional fertilizers.

Application rates for Organic fertilizers are higher than traditional fertilizers, and the number of applications needed per year is greater.  This is because we are “feeding the soil” as much or more than feeding the grass.

Organic fertilizers are very safe and won’t burn your grass.

Organic fertilizers are very safe and won’t burn your grass, however, frequently it will take days or weeks to notice a “visual response” from the application.  Discipline is the key to making an organic lawn program effective.

It is best to incorporate some other non-fertilizer “cultural practices”.

It is best to incorporate some other non-fertilizer “cultural practices” to optimize your organic lawn program, be sure to consider:

  • Grass mowing height – generally the higher the better, and don’t ever remove more than 25-30% of the grass leaf at any one time. Also be sure to leave grass clippings as they serve as fertilizer and a food source for your lawn.
  • Watering frequency – generally, infrequent-deep watering is best to encourage deep root growth.

You may need to have more tolerance or be willing to pull existing weeds by hand.

From a weed perspective, you may need to have more tolerance, or be willing to pull existing weeds by hand.  Healthy turf will thrive and make it challenging for new weeds to get established, however, some weeds can break through.

Simplicity and discipline are the keys to success.

A complex program is challenging to manage.

Organic lawn care does require more time and can be more costly to achieve desired results.

Naturally, this depends of the current state of your lawn, soil structure and other agronomic variables, but in most cases a beautiful lawn is possible with organic products.
