If you are concerned about protecting the environment, but you still want to enjoy a lush, green lawn and beautiful plantings, it is important that you understand your options when it comes to fertilizer. At Juniper Landscape Company, we pride ourselves on using the best high-quality organic fertilizers that protect the earth while still delivering healthy results for our customers.
Start with the basics—what is fertilizer? Fertilizer is any substance that encourages plant growth. The fertilizers we add to our lawns and gardens are chemical in nature. By adding certain chemicals and enzymes, we encourage plant growth. Some fertilizers encourage root growth, while others help the plant produce beautiful flowers or fruits.
Plants need certain nutrients to thrive. The primary three are nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), and potassium (K). How much of each nutrient the fertilizer provides depends on the type and the mix. How much of each nutrient your plant or grass needs is dependent upon the type of plant and the level of growth you want.
While all fertilizers serve the same purpose, they do not accomplish this goal in the same way. Some fertilizers employ harsh chemicals that can damage the soil and water in your yard, while others are gentler, working with the plant’s natural properties to produce good growth and bloom.
Organic fertilizers give you the best of both worlds. They offer the results that you want in terms of plant growth and health while avoiding the harsh chemicals that can damage our water supply, soil makeup, or nutrient profiles. In many cases, they avoid the issue of over-fertilizing the soil by providing just the right amount of nutrients to promote growth without burning the plants or causing too-rapid blooming that can lead to early drop and other problems.
