Organic Lawn Care for a Healthy Lifestyle

Organic practices are paramount for a healthy lawn and are best for your own health as well. Organic practices put the need of chemical fertilizers down, which are eventually harmful to your own health and the health of the environment in the process. In organic lawn care, you have to feed your lawn soil with the organic fertilizers, which are chemical-free and are made of natural plant, minerals, or animals.

Thicken your yard’s soil by spreading the seeds of grass. Keep in mind, that if you have healthy green grass; it will complement your soil and vice versa. Use compost and add it to the surface of your soil. It is the natural organic matter, which is completely healthy for your soil. You should add at least seven percent compost in the soil.

Watering of soil is the key to having healthy, green environment surrounding you. In the summer, your lawn requires at least 50 to 60 percent of your domestic water utility. However, if you have thickened your soil and added compost in it; this will minimize the need for watering to manifolds. It is because the compost has the ability of water retention. The compost will absorb and conserve water for the times of low-moisture conditions. By composting, you will not have to frequently water your grass. Rather, the grass will become more self-sufficient for its water requirement.

Another good organic practice is the leaving of your leaf litter and clippings there on the soil and grass. This remaining material is known as the mulch. It will provide the sufficient nutrients and moisture to the soil by decomposition. In this way, you will not have to put in the nitrogenous chemical fertilizers, which are not healthy for your own health. This mulch will compensate for the nitrogen deficiency. On the other hand, there is a wrong myth regarding this mulch that it can become thatch i.e., the upper blanket of impermeable material that prevents sunlight, nutrients, and water from reaching out the root systems and eventually to the whole plant body. So mulching is another beneficial organic practice you should carry out in order to meet soil’s nutrients and moisture needs.

Another superseding organic practice is the usage of organic fertilizers, which are essentially made up of natural components derived from plants, minerals, and animals. These organic fertilizers are manufactured by keeping the humans, environment, and the other biota in mind. They provide no harm to any components of the environment including biotic (living) as well as abiotic (non-living) components. Using organic fertilizers is one of the great eco-friendly practices one must carry out to protect the atmosphere and surroundings.

Above are all the organic practices that you should do in order to get a perfect green lawn as well as the healthy lifestyle. Organic methods pose no harmful effects on the living and non-living part of the environment, hence, they should be practiced more often than not. The environment is going to offer prayers for you for your noble and kind concern.
