What is INCLUDED in Kirby’s 7 Step Nutrition + Aerating & Seeding Program:
“At Kirby’s Landscaping we use an Organic Compost Tea called Holganix as our base for Nutrition Applications. This compost tea is a liquid fertilizer that adds much needed microbes and nutrients into the soil that chemical fertilizers just can’t compete with. Applying Holganix enhances the health of the soil naturally, which in turn improves the quality of the grass, reflecting its nutrient rich environment. The industry’s alternative to compost tea and what is most commonly found in nutrition programs, are chemical treatments. Chemical treatments heavily layer on Nitrogen and Phosphorus that make the grass temporarily happy but acts only as a band-aid, masking nutrient deficiencies in the environment, while also negatively impacting the ecosystems of our waterways.
The long term benefits of adding nutrients to the soil with our compost tea means that were creating a stronger ecosystem starting in the soil, therefore requiring fewer chemicals each year to control weeds and unwanted species in the lawn. This happens because as we improve the soil, the root system of the Fescue Grass get stronger, healthier and can beat out nearby competition with very little to almost no help from toxic chemicals.
