Scientists are increasingly finding that the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides is having adverse consequences on our environment. “Dead Zones” have appeared in oceans and lakes that cannot sustain marine life and it has been estimated that well over 65 million birds die annually from pesticide poisoning. Studies have also shown agricultural insecticides are responsible for various health problems and neurological problems in adults and that Children are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects from pesticides and other lawn treatments.
Besides being harmful to people and the environment, what you may not know is that in the long run that synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are actually doing more harm to your lawn. These chemicals actually degrade the soil and make the grass weaker and less likely to fight off weeds, insects, and diseases, creating a need for even more chemicals to be applied. According to the EPA, “Compared to chemical treatments, non-chemical methods are generally effective for longer periods of time. They are less likely to create hardy pest populations that develop the ability to resist pesticides. And many non-chemical pest controls can be used with fewer safeguards, because they are generally thought to pose virtually no hazards to human health or the environment.”
Organic fertilizer is not only the healthy alternative for you, your family, and the natural environment. Organic fertilizers provide the soil with the nutrients it needs to naturally support plant growth. The philosophy behind organic lawn care is that the healthier the soil, the healthier the grass will become. This means that in the long run the grass will need fewer treatments and cost less money than a chemically treated lawn.
