Benefits of raw & organic fertiliser for lawn care
More and more Kiwis are discovering the benefits and importance of choosing eco-friendly products. Going organic ahead of chemical simply makes sense if you want your lawn to be climate aware.
“Organic” is a common term used by many companies to describe their products, often without clarification as to what that really means. When we say “organic fertiliser”, we mean our fertiliser is made of naturally decaying materials, such as animal waste, leaves, wood, and more. These materials break down naturally, providing nutrients for your grass to digest. Check out our seaweed fertiliser for a perfect example!
In contrast, synthetic fertilisers are usually comprised of non renewable sources and energy. In some instances they can require more frequent application and lack the diverse microbiological nutrients that plants need, and may contribute towards polluting eco-systems and waterways.
At MOTO Turf, we prioritise transparency and honesty with our customers. That’s why we like to share everything we know about how to look after a lawn properly. Our expert team has compiled a list of some of the key benefits of choosing organic fertilisers, so read on to learn more!
A diverse set of nutrients
Having a diversified nutrient profile for your grass is better for the health of the soil, the plant itself and our atmosphere. The natural components in an organic fertiliser such as wood, manure, and compost contain microbes and organisms that break down into micronutrients for the grass and soil to utilise.
These micronutrients increase the health of the roots and soil and provide you with a great looking lawn. Further, they help to strengthen your grass’s immune system, protecting it against pests and diseases.
Going natural means a slow release of the nutrients that your soil needs. Yes, it requires some patience, but it is definitely worth it in the long run. A slower release of nutrients means your grass will be able to grow steadily on its own and evenly distribute its energy into the roots. Healthy roots mean a better-looking turf!
That means your grass will enjoy longer, more sustainable growth. The soil will gradually build up a store of any extra nourishment your lawn can tap into at any time.
Less maintenance for you
Another benefit of the slow release that comes with organic fertiliser is the fact that the plant will do a lot of the work for you! Our lawn fertiliser NZ at MOTO Turf facilitates a mineral-rich soil structure. The plant can feed itself and grow steadily.
In contrast, synthetic fertilisers feed the plants themselves but in some instances not the soil, therefore they need to be applied more frequently. They also encourage an unnaturally rapid growth of the grass, which will mean you need to mow the lawn more often.
Safe and eco-friendly
One of the best parts about organic fertilisers is that they contain no artificial chemicals and therefore is safer to use. Chemical fertilisers present a severe danger to the health of humans, dogs, and other animals if accidentally ingested. Further, in the likely event that the chemicals run into nearby waterways, they can cause serious pollution and endanger native fish and birds.
Easy to use
It’s hard to overdo the natural fertiliser because it takes far longer to break down than chemicals do. Too much chemical fertiliser can kill your plants, so organic is a safe bet!
Increased water retention
While it is true that you may need to water your grass more when using natural fertiliser, you can simultaneously improve your plant’s water retention. natural manure can prevent the leaching of minerals from run-off water, making this another part of why it is better for the environment.
