How Soil Microbes Build a Healthier Lawn

Care for your lawn with Proganix fertilizer.

There’s nothing quite like a lush, green, full lawn. It looks amazing, complementing your house and the rest of the yard perfectly. You can also use it for play space or somewhere to sit and relax on a summer evening. Unfortunately, the harsh weather in Colorado can make achieving such a dream frustrating. That doesn’t mean you need to give up, because the Lawn Doctor team has the ideal solution. Our Proganix fertilizer isn’t like other options out there. It uses soil microbes to help your lawn achieve a level of health your neighbors will surely envy.

A lush, green lawn comes from healthy soil.Why Microbes Matter

Most people associate microbes with the stuff in yeast or yogurt, but they have no idea that microbes exist in soil. Without them, no plants can grow in the ground, so you can say microbes are essential to life. Like any living thing, microbes need a food source, or they will die. They feed on organic matter in the soil. As they do this, these tiny organisms leave helpful nutrients for your grass:

  • Nitrogen
  • Hydrogen
  • Oxygen
  • Carbon 
  • Phosphorus 
  • Potassium 

Basically, the healthier the microbes in the soil are, and the more that are present, the better the health of your lawn. 

Happy grass comes from happy soil!Feeding the Microbes

When formulating our lawn fertilizer, we concentrate on what the soil microbes need. That would sound strange to someone who doesn’t understand the importance of those microscopic creatures, but now that you do, it’s easy to see why. There are other benefits to feeding soil microbes. This approach involves putting organic matter in the ground, instead of harsh chemicals. That’s a safer way for you, your family, and even your pets. You can relax and play on the grass without worries that you’re being exposed to something dangerous. It’s really the best way to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Other Benefits

Our Proganix fertilizer comes with additional benefits for you and your lawn. We include insect control and weed control, guarding against those two threats to the health of the grass. That means you’re adding the right nutrition, plus defensive barriers against aggressive invasions. This mix has been formulated specially for the climate in Colorado. That makes it superior to other fertilizers that have been designed for other parts of the country. You don’t need to do anything special with this approach to boosting soil microbes. Just maintain your lawn properly by trimming and watering it, and watch it grow healthy and strong.
