Feeding your lawn may seem to be a novel idea, but lawn food is a real gardening resource. Those that have green fingers will understand that regardless of what you’re trying to grow, nurture is the key. There are however some of us that feel that we can kill a plant by simply looking at it. It is this group of people that often feel they need help. Even when it comes to growing grass. The average person may wonder whats involved in growing grass and how difficult can it possibly be? Ask those that envy the skills of the green fingered brigade and soon you’ll discover that there is in fact a science to cultivating a well trimmed even green lawn.
Lawn food – where the grass is greener
Providing nutrients for plants is not a new concept. Well rotted compost has been a cultivation tool for thousands of years. The use of manure has been a well known elixir for agricultural produce that has been difficult to grow. The spread of manure to enhance the quality of field grazing remains a popular practice even today. Mankind however has advanced and we are now able to develop plant specific nutrition, down to the grass that we grow in our gardens.
