    If you want to …
    If you want to leave the clippings on the yard, as he suggests at the end, get a mulching mower, or see if your mower will mulch. If you’re not cutting a ridiculous amount of grass off the top, it will look like it was bagged. A mulching mower traps the grass cut under the mower and chops it up really small, the blade is designed to create lift on the uncut grass, and lets the small pieces fall down to the roots. Looks good and it’s good for your grass, if cut regularly.

    Urea is a chemical. Yes.
    What is an organic compound? A carbon based chemical. The world gets a little bit stupider every year. This type of branding just makes it worse.

    @cheerfulleigh …
    @cheerfulleigh Epsom salts are not actually a salt but contains Phospherous and nitrogen. The sugar acts as a stimulant. Mix 4lbs epsom with 1lb confectioners sugar with your regular fertilizer. Spread as usual. You can Googlesearch that combo to see results. This combo gives a deep green lawn. Also try a bag of organic nitrogen from home depot. Its about $12 and will not burn your lawn. Works great.

    what do you do if you have mesh growing in your yard? i have a big tree in my yard and can never get good grass because of the roots under the tree. Every other area in my yard looks great exeecpt the area where this tree is. What can be done without harming the tree to prevent this?

    Beckman, you are, …
    Beckman, you are, simply, wrong. Synthetic fertilizers do not bind to the soil, and run off or leach through the ground. An organic 3-1-5 will do a better and longer lasting job. The microbes in your soils will utilize it better. What good is 28% N if 95% of it ends up in the local rivers or aquifers.
    And Nacho, the reason he recommends a taller grass is that it shades out/chokes out weeds.
    Go look at videos from OrganicTexas. They explain it all perfectly.

    If you just put astro turf down it solves all your weeding, feeding and cutting problems. It also stays green and it’s pesticide free.

    The 3-1-5 luscious lawn & garden organic fertilizer looks like a joke. The 3 is nitrogen which grass needs the most. Most traditional lawn fertilizers are 28-1-1. The organic fertilizer is taken from the environment which is depriving some other ecosystem. In addition the word chemical is used too loosely, I drink chemicals every day such as water.
