When your lawn isn’t growing properly, it’s very important to treat it with the right kinds of lawn care products. While making sure that your dog doesn’t urinate on it and that the soil pH is balanced, you won’t get too far with all that if you don’t provide your lawn with healthy, organic products that can improve the quality of the soil over time, while also ensuring that your lawn is properly fed.
Compost piles and aged animal manure can help with all that, creating a rich and diverse source of nutrients that have varying ability to release essential nitrogen and other compounds, as they decompose. Make sure to avoid manure coming from animals that consume meat, and add compost piles that are known as a rich source of potassium and phosphorus. It’s a good idea to mix your compost with the topsoil to prevent it from drying out too quickly. Also, for best results, make sure that you get about a quarter to half an inch of compost when seeding or reseeding your lawn.
Avoid anything that’s chemical-based or that releases a large amount of nutrients very quickly. In a lot of cases, when the soil is a little challenging and causes your lawn to grow poorly, it’s essential to avoid liquid fertilizer and instead treat your lawn with slow-release organic fertilizer. That way you can ensure that the grass gets a steady amount of healthy nutrients over the next few weeks after seeding it, so it will grow robust and proper.
