All of us would like to have our lawn healthy and attractive, but are not aware that there are some additional aspects which need to be taken into consideration. By understanding more about organic lawn care you can take necessary measures in order to maintain the health of your lawn.
Many people are now aware of the benefits of fresh purely organic lawn food, which is available from food suppliers in their local area. But what many people fail to realize is that a good part of this food does not go down well with the local birds or insects.
So, what are the best ways to ensure that your lawn gets all the nutrients that it needs from organic lawn food? A great idea is to plant and maintain an area of lawn where insects and birds can feed on them.
Another thing that helps in getting the best nutrients out of organic lawn food is to put away the whole container before you eat it. This will prevent the bugs from being contaminated by the food.
There are many other methods you can use to ensure that your organic lawn food does not get contaminated and go down badly with insects and birds. These include:
To avoid using compost, the containers need to be kept in a warm, dry place and the bugs must not get to the compost before they get to the grass. The grass must also not get fertilized while in this place.
Feeding by hand is a much more secure method of feeding than feeding by spoon. If the bugs get to the food first, they can infect the grass, which can get into the bug and end up killing the insect as well.
It is important to have old rusty spoons lying around as they are useful forgetting back into the soil after feeding. Remember to take out any twigs or clippings and get rid of them too as these can be harmful.
Get hold of an array of traps which are made for getting the bugs back out of the grass. If you feel you need to use these on your lawn, make sure that you know how to use them and to replace them if needed.
There are some insects that like to eat very small pieces of grass. If you notice that there are lots of these small grass pieces, chances are you have been feeding the bugs instead of the grass.
Getting rid of bugs from your organic lawn food does not always mean using chemicals and pesticides. However, if you have very small pests in your lawn, it might be a good idea to use pest control sprays.
But don’t be too alarmed if you see these sprays being used. It is more common to see natural methods being used to get rid of these pests rather than chemicals.
