LAWN FOOD About: Natural Fertilizers

Our fertilizers work with Nature by combining natural organic matter and rich natural nutrition that is converted by beneficial soil microorganisms to elemental plant food. The result is better soil that becomes richer with every application.

About: Natural vs Chemical Nature’s Guide Lawn and Turf foods work on the same principle to renew and reinvigorate soils and lawns. By reducing the use of man-made chemicals, Nature’s Guide makes the landscape safer and healthier for our kids, our pets, and our planet.

About: Grass Clippings NEVER REMOVE GRASS CLIPPINGS! Grass clippings should always be allowed to remain on the lawn. They can be unsightly immediately after mowing if the grass is overgrown but soon dry up and disappear. Soil microorganisms stimulated by Nature’s Guide lawn foods quickly break clippings down into a useful compost that provides nutrition and improves soil structure with beneficial organic matter. Use the same approach with fallen leaves in the fall. Mow them don’t rake! Never waste these valuable resources.

Soil Amendments Basic soils are classified by the size of individual mineral particles. Clay is the finest, 1/12, 500th of an inch or smaller than silt, fine sand, and medium sand which is 1/100 to 1/150th of an inch. Nature’s Guide Soil Amendments combine with the existing foundation soil to make it more hospitable to beneficial microorganisms. The porous nature of our soil amendments helps soils retain moisture when it is dry and promote drainage when it is wet. By separating clay particles they facilitate the exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen and decrease resistance to tender growing roots. Biologically active Nature’s Guide Composts add vital organic matter and improve drainage, moisture retention, and aeration. As these products continue to break down they release their supply of sugars, starches, proteins, carbohydrates, and organic acids used by living plants and microorganisms for nutrition. When they are fully decomposed the result is humus. A stable organic ash that increases soil microporosity. It is this dark colored humus that is responsible for the color of rich soils. 7

Composts Compost is the stuff of life for the garden. It is made up of decomposed organic matter that has been broken down by worms and fungi and finally by aerobic bacteria.

Mulches Use mulch to suppress weeds, resist washing, hold moisture in the soil and insulate plant roots from temperature extremes. In arid climates and where water restrictions are enforced “mulch” has to be in your vocabulary.
