Chemical Fertilizers VS. Compost

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

It’s not quite as old as the dispute over the chicken or the egg, but the argument over chemical fertilizers vs. compost does rage on, between those eco-minded members of the community like ourselves and those that go the more conventional, and harmful route. (Hope we don’t seem to biased)

To be frank, there are four very real facts that should drive anyone away from the harmful-if-colorful chemical fertilizers when the time comes to feed their lawn.

  • Compost is organic so it won’t burn your grass if you accidentally apply too much at one time.
  • Compost is organic so it won’t stain your driveway or brick work that borders your lawn.
  • Compost is organic so it won’t give off a chemical smell.
  • Compost is organic so it is easily, and naturally, absorbed into the soil to feed your lawn quickly.

Now back away from the pink or blue bags and get to composting.
