Summer Lawn Care Schedule for Grass

图片
It is time to get out the sunscreen and get your summer lawn care maintenance program moving to the sunny beat. Our lawns see a lot of action during these warmer months. As a result, the summer care required is the same everywhere except that some places will need to ensure that some steps take a little extra time.
With summer comes vacations, and the kids are out of school. This means time away from your lawn and heavy foot traffic the rest of the time. There are hotter temperatures and more pests that are looking for a cool spot to get away from the heat. Summer lawn care can be super comfortable with little maintenance done once a week.


In the summer, the grass is still growing. Typically a once a week mowing will be just fine. You don't want to cut it too short otherwise, the grass will burn from the sun. Besides, keeping the grass a little longer will help prevent some of the moisture in the ground that your lawn needs as the hot afternoons heat up.
When mowing, if you can, try …

What is the best soil fertilizer for cannabis?

图片
To get healthy cannabis, your plants need reasonable fertilizers and cannabis nutrients. Just like our daily life needs to be supported by diet, so does cannabis.


Firstly, let us see the essential preparation for cannabis soil.
1. Perlite is a kind of acidic lava that erupts from volcanoes. It is a vitreous rock formed by rapid cooling. It can regulate soil compaction, prevent crops from lodging, and control fertilizer efficiency. It can also be used as a diluent for pesticides and herbicides. The silicon, calcium, magnesium, and other mineral components contained in it will also decompose into the soil.

2. Soil fertilizer for cannabis is aimed to keep the soil soft and fertile, the cannabis needs sandy soil with sufficient water and nutrients, and the pH value should be maintained at 6-6.5, which is slightly acidic. Generally, crop rotation of cannabis with rice, vegetables, and jute can reduce diseases and insect pests and improve nutrient and water storage capacity

Cannabis Growth Hormone - Roots & Flower Growth

图片
During the life cycle of plants, almost all aspects of their activity, growth, and development are controlled by these organic chemicals naturally produced by plants, which we call plant hormones.

These plant hormones not only regulate plant morphology and metabolism but also determine how plants respond to environmental factors such as weather conditions, stress, and physical damage caused by pests or pathogens. In this post, we will talk about the most common plant hormones, their effects on plants, and some of the ways that gardeners can exploit the great potential of natural plant hormones for their own benefit.
Hormones can be known as natural organic chemical signals produced by an organism that controls the way its cells function. These hormones are usually synthesized in minimal amounts by individual cells in one part of the organism and then transported to where they work.


How to use cannabis plant hormonesPlant hormones are used differently from nutrients. Instead, they should …

What’s the Main advantages of using organic fertilizer

图片
The main advantage of using organic fertilizer is that it improves the overall structure of the soil itself (Soil amendments), which leads to healthier plants that grow larger and live longer.
Soil that has organic fertilizer added to it improves the long-term strength and stability of soil and plants. It keeps airy and loose and is capable of retaining moisture and oxygen. These qualities also allow better drainage. The organic matter in the fertilizer attracts a diverse and rich array of beneficial microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi or earthworms which continue to keep the soil aerated. This also continuously adds organic matter back into the soil, which creates a self-sustaining fertilizer as the cycle repeats over and over as there are always nutrients for the plants to absorb. This allows the plants to develop strong and healthy roots, which are the key to growing healthy plants.Organic fertilizer releases nitrogen slowly and continuously so your plants are constantly being fe…

Benefits of Humic Acid As a Soil Conditioner

图片
The usage of humic acid in gardening is a relatively new idea, and it is not much popular yet in the gardening world. Also, only professional people seem to use it so far. Humic acid is also available only through the internet and the direct mail outlets so far.

However, research shows that humic acid has excellent benefits for all types of plants and soil conditions so far. The acid is a combination of humic and folic acids. It is normally found in decomposed plants and animals. So, it provides a great source of nutrition to the soil and the plants. It improves the quality of the soil to a great extent, and even the deficient soils seem to grow plants well. The acid is introduced to clay or soil directly and breaks their composition up. It also allows air, moisture, and water to pass through the soil. So, the root penetration is higher among soil conditions that are rich in the acid.

The acid also plays a critical role when it comes to the plants absorbing the nutrients. It unlocks the…

Soil Amendments and Organic Materials

图片
Soil amendments can improve the overall physical properties of soils. The amendments are mixed in with the soil, and then mulch is usually placed over the surface. The soil can then receive nutrients through the amendments.
When choosing the best choice for soil amendments, they should be ones that can increase water and the capacity to hold nutrients. It will improve the overall aeration and water infiltration through the soil. Having wood products in the soil can tie up any nitrogen that is in the soil. One important tip that many people should know is that when you go to choose and use biosolids, you want to choose Grade 1 for the ultimate performance for your soil.


A soil amendment is any solution or material that is added to soil in order to improve the physical properties of the soil, such as water retention, water infiltration, permeability, drainage, structure, and aeration. The goal of the soil amendment is to provide a better and more nourishing environment for roots.

Organic Fertilizer - Vegetable Based Fertilizers For Your Garden

图片
Organic fertilizers made from vegetation usually have low to moderate nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium value. The nutrients from this type of fertilizer are slow-release but become quickly available in the soil for your plants to use. Some organic fertilizers even provide extra doses of trace minerals and micro-nutrients. This type of fertilizer can be purchased at most local garden centers.



Some of the most common plant-based fertilizers include the following ingredients
Alfalfa meal is made from alfalfa plants and pressed into a pellet. It is a beneficial way to add nitrogen and potassium to the soil, along with trace minerals and growth stimulants. Adding it to your compost will speed up the composting process.
Compost is a great way to add organic matter to your garden soil. It usually doesn't add much in nutrient value as just a plant-based fertilizer, but it does enhance and help to make available nutrients in the soil.
Corn gluten meal is made from corn. It comes in a powder…
