What’s Wrong with Chemical Fertilizers?

Synthetic High Nitrogen Fertilizers boost the risk of insect and disease infestations, weed problems and cause immense stress on your plants or seedlings. It’s clear, synthetic fertilizers induce a quick growing rush by making excess nutrients available for a short time. The plant absorbs the chemicals quickly and uses the excess energy for very rapid growth above the soil in lieu of of storing carbohydrates. The excessive nitrogen also leaches through the soil or easily washes away (polluting ground and surface water) leaving the salt to toxify the soil which reduces the microbe and earthworm populations. This consequently reduces nutrient cycling, noticeably reduces organic matter (inhibits thatch composting), and the resulting soil compaction promotes weeds and further soil damage.

The Organic Solution

Our Natural Fertilizer, Soil Conditioner, and Compost Tea solution immediately reverses this process. Many of it’s nutrients are in chelated form which holds them in reserve until they are needed.

Our Solution is a total supply of nutrients as organic compounds such as carbohydrates and proteins which are held in the soil until the microbes and other organisms in our Compost Tea digest them. This starts and fuels the “self sustaining” process leading to increased nutrient cycles and naturally aerated soil structures.

You cannot find a more potent combination of hydrolyzed fish extracts, kelp, sulfate of potash, microbiology and other proprietary ingredients than we have in our lawn solution.
