Organic Soil Treatment
Humate is a great organic way to treat soil and get more microorganisms to live in it. One application of humate soil conditioner is about the same as spreading a half-inch layer of high-quality organic compost over the lawn. Humate is one of the best lawn and tree care products from Organo-Lawn because it builds the soil and is easier and less expensive to use than an organic compost top dressing.
For lawns with a lot of clay in the soil, you have to use Humate Soil Conditioner once or twice a year. Many of our lawn care customers in the Boulder and Fort Collins areas have found that putting this organic soil conditioner on their lawns once a year has made a big difference in how healthy the soil is.
What is Humate for Lawns?
Humate Soil Conditioner is made from organic matter that has been in the ground for a million years. It has a good effect on the physical, chemical, and biological processes of the soil, which makes the soil more fertile and increases the activity of microorganisms. Humate is made up of Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid, which have been shown to build up organic matter in soils and increase the activity of good microorganisms. Humate is a key part of building a living soil. Basically, humate is organic matter that is a million years old and looks a lot like coal. It is also full of organic compounds that will build up organic matter in soils.
If the lawn is watered deeply and infrequently and is taken care of by Organo-full-season Lawn’s lawn care program, an application of humate soil conditioner will make the lawn look deep green and lush. Humate, unlike lawn fertilizers, won’t make the grass grow faster. Humate will make the grass dark green without making it grow. This is because humate helps release good nutrients from the soil that the grass would not be able to get otherwise. Humate is a chelating agent that does a great job of getting nutrients like nitrogen, iron, potassium, etc. out of the soil that would otherwise be stuck there. The soil often has a lot of these nutrients, but plants can’t use them until a product like humate is added.
