Good healthy plants can fend off disease and destructive insects. The absence of these microorganisms and larger organisms such as earthworms, result in compacted, lifeless soil. Lifeless soil, of course, cannot sustain life.

Your Lawn Loves Low Nitrogen Fertilizer

Your lawn loves low nitrogen (N), low phosphorus (P), and low potassium (K) fertilizer. It also likes organic fertilizer or urea-based fertilizers, not nitrate-based fertilizers. Why? Well, let’s look at the nature of lawns, especially warm-season grasses like St. Augustine, Bermuda, and Zoysia.

Do you know where your garden seeds come from?

Bayer now controls the seed for 55 percent of the lettuce, 75% of the tomatoes, and 85 percent of the peppers in U.S. groceries. The company also holds a significant portion of the markets on beans, cucumbers, squash, melons, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, and peas. Interesting food for thought, not so interesting for our bodies and health.
