These toxins cause numerous health problems and pollute the land. The importance and value of organic fertilizers cannot be understated. Garden, lawn care and lawn maintenance are best served by using natural organic products and fertilizers.

What makes organic fertilizers different from chemical fertilizers is that the materials are a by-product of vegetables, animals or minerals. The decomposing matter from these sources, break down naturally and will provide nutrients and minerals to the soil. When considering lawn maintenance it is necessary to make sure that the lawn or garden gets the all of the nutrients that it needs for healthy growth. Although nutrients are available in regular soil, fertilizers can provide and ensure that plants have a balanced and sustainable access to the nutrients. Proper lawn care includes providing for the health of the lawn and garden.

One of the benefits of organic fertilizer is that the nutrients are released more slowly than in chemical fertilizers. This slower process allows the plants to process the fertilizer in a more natural way and will not result in over fertilizing which could damage the plants. Another benefit of organic fertilizer in your landscaping and lawn care is that it will actually help to improve the soil itself. It will help the soil to retain moisture. The organic substances can break up clay in the soil. The soil drainage and air circulation of the soil can also be improved. When the soil has the structure and nutrients that it needs, lawn care will be easier.
