A guide to spring lawn care on Martha's Vineyard
Whether it is keeping your existing lawn healthy or restoring a lawn in poor health, we can help with solutions to ensure the health and appearance of your lawn for the long term. A healthy lawn starts with providing the environment for grasses to thrive and remain healthy. This starts with providing the proper foundation for a healthy lawn and it all starts with the soil.
MAG-I-CAL® for Lawns in Acidic Soil
Soils here on Martha’s Vineyard tend to be sandy or sandy clay and generally acidic. Most soils are deficient in organic matter necessary for heathy growth conditions for your lawn. Soil acidity or pH is important for a healthy lawn, when the pH of your soil is balanced (around 6.2 to 7.0 for most grasses) this allows the grass plants to naturally absorb the nutrients which are locked up in the soil with lower pH or more acidic soil.
Mag-I-Cal from Jonathan Green is recommended to help balance the pH of the soil. It contains 35% highly soluble calcium and humates which helps the grass plants absorb minerals and nutrients previously locked up in the soil and not available to the grass plants making it more effective than most traditional lime products. Mag-I-Cal is available in 5,000 and 15,000 square foot coverage bags. An application of Mag-I-Cal once in the spring and again in the fall is recommended for most lawns.
LOVE YOUR SOIL Natural Soil Food
Healthy organic matter or humus in the soil and naturally occurring microbes is what ultimately feeds your lawn. Helping to achieve the soil biology necessary for a healthy lawn means providing the naturally occurring microbes in the soil the conditions and nutrients required for this ecosystem to work. This means correcting compacted soil conditions for aeration and providing the microbes with a food source to convert nutrients to make them available to the grass plants
Love-Your-Soil helps to improve soil conditions by loosening up hard pack sandy clay soils to improve aeration and provides nutrients to help stimulate the microbes in the soil. Love-Your-Soil contains humic acids, fluvic acids, calcium, sulfur, iron, and molasses along with essential L-Amino Acids which all help to enhance the natural soil biology to helping natural microbes thrive releasing nutrients and providing the conditions for a healthy disease resistant, drought resistant lawn. Love-Your-Soil is available in 1,000, 5,000 and 15,000 square foot bags.
BLACK BEAUTY Organic Lawn Fertilizer
