At Lush Lawn, we definitely receive our fair share of questions regarding organic lawn care. Here are some of the most frequent.
Is it okay for my pets and children to be on the lawn after an application?
Absolutely! Our organic granular fertilizer is perfectly safe for all living creatures. As soon as it is applied to the lawn, it is safe to walk on.
What’s the difference between organic and synthetic?
Organic fertilizers are 100% made up of matter from animals and plants. Synthetic fertilizers are scientifically designed to release a particular nutrient quickly (nitrogen, for example), while organic will release nutrients at a slower, steadier pace.
Is organic more expensive?
Yes, an organic solution is typically more expensive than synthetic. Many times, you find that the cost per pound of organic fertilizer is less than a synthetic blend, but more product is needed to be applied to the lawn to get the same amount of nutrients found in a synthetic fertilizer. In the long run, organic is definitely more expensive.
Is there an organic weed killer or weed control?
Unfortunately, no. There currently is no organic product on the market that does a great job at killing or controlling weeds. Many Lush Lawn organic customers do utilize a synthetic crabgrass pre-emergent or weed control spray a few times a year.
How long will it take to get great results with organic?
A thick, lush organic lawn can take a number of years to create. Many customers will use a mix of both organic and synthetic to get their lawns green and healthy. Once your lawn is thick and weed-free, going organic from that point forward is definitely ideal. Your lawn will naturally repel weeds when thick and healthy.
