Why use Organic Fertilizer?
So why would you choose to use an organic fertilizer over a conventional or synthetic fertilizer? Several reasons. Being environmentally conscious is one reason. Organic fertilizers are made of natural plant and animal based ingredients. You don’t have to worry about pumping your garden or landscape full of chemicals. Over time, chemicals deplete the soil of its nutrients, making it barren and unproductive. This creates an endless cycle of needing to put more chemicals into your soils and plants to replace the nutrients the chemicals wiped out in the first place. This abundance of chemicals in our gardens and landscapes eventually builds up and is washed away into our waterways creating unhealthy environmental consequences. By using organic granular fertilizers and organic liquid fertilizers you can rest assured that your lawn and garden is safe for the environment, your family and your pets.
Organic fertilizers feed at a slower, more paced approach than synthetic fertilizers. What does this mean? It means that both the soil and your plant are being supplied the nutrients they thrive on in a much gentler fashion, allowing both to feed and grow at the appropriate speed. Synthetic fertilizers speed up this process and in doing so typically overfeed your plants, and can result in “burning” plants. Whether in a granular or liquid form, organic fertilizers are not often in a form that can be quickly absorbed by your plant. Instead the soil must break it down in order to make it usable by the plant. This is a good thing as it means the fertilizer is not easily washed away in the rain, allowing the plant to feed for a longer period of time.
