Organic Lawn Care
Thinking about going organic this spring. I have been a heavy user of chemicals for about 7-8 years now. My lawn is "nice" but hasn't quite looked as good for the past 2-3 years. I'm hoping that going organic will get my soil health back and enable me to have the lush lawn I once had. My local garden center has suggested the following program:
1. (Optional) Apply Natural Guard Soil Activator
2. CGM in early spring (I'm assuming Espoma Brand)
3. Espoma (Not sure which one)
5. Espoma (Not sure which one)
I do have a good local source of SBM and Alfalfa meal in 50lb bulk bags ($15 each). Would I be better off using the CGM from the garden center (can't find it local) and then using the bulk feeds for the rest of my program and maybe throwing in some Milogranite (available at Walmart)? I do want to watch my costs but in the end it may all cost about the same. I guess the real question comes down to is the bulk feeds better than the Espoma? Any help would be appreciated.
