Why Clay Soil Fertilization?

When new homes are built in Hamilton County and nearby areas, much of the beneficial topsoil is stripped off the land, leaving properties to be built completely on clay soil. A little clay in the soil is good, but around Hamilton County, we get too much of a good thing. A few problems of clay soil are:

Clay is heavy to move. If it’s difficult for humans to lift, it’s also difficult for roots to grow in the soil and become established.

Clay malnourishes your grass. It doesn’t have enough iron and other nutrients available that your grass needs.

When clay dries out, it gets hard, and the root system can’t access water and nutrients.

Clay gets compacted easily, shutting out the water and air that the roots need.

Key nutrients need to be added back into this soil before you can begin to grow a thriving, healthy lawn. Our clay soil fertilization program was developed to specifically target this growing issue.

How Does It Work?

Our clay soil fertilization services begin with our own customized proprietary blend of clay soil fertilizer that includes chemicals, nutrients, and locally produced/sourced organic biochar. The main component of our clay soil application, BioChar, helps to break down the clay in the soil, allowing the roots of the grass to absorb nutrients better. Our clay soil application process:

  • Begin with a two-step yearly application, once in the spring and once in the fall when the plants are absorbing and storing the most nutrients for winter dormancy.
  • We highly recommend it to be done in combination with a lawn fertilization and seeding program to help establish a solid lawn.
  • Can be a multi-year process, as the soil may not be amended after the first season. Our clay soil fertilizer will need to be applied consistently each year until the desired results are achieved.

After we’ve treated a lawn with our clay soil program, the grass starts developing healthy roots, getting the nutrients it needs. A deep green color and dense spread of grass will make your lawn the most beautiful on the block. Healthy soil means that your lawn will not puddle after it has been watered. And, as a bonus, it will also be easier to maintain.

Three Keys To A Beautiful Lawn

In the fall, our double pass core aeration relieves compaction and promotes deeper rooting. Deep roots allow grass to maintain its health longer in stressful times of the season, such as summer heat and drought. This should be done yearly in the fall.

Our fertilization is key to keeping the lawn well fed and promotes strength against stresses and diseases. Our weed control reduces weeds from taking up space and creating bare areas in the lawn. These bare areas would be prime real estate for grassy weeds the following summer. This should be done each season.

A thick lawn naturally repels weeds by filling in and reducing the area that weeds find desirable, lessening the amount of chemical weed control needed throughout the season. The new seed germinates and replaces grass plants that may have expired due to stress and disease the year before, keeping the lawn young and healthy. This should be done yearly at the same time as the aeration.

The Homeowner Holds The Key To A Healthy Lawn

During the season, your mowing height should be adjusted. Mowing at 3 to 3½ inches in spring and fall, and mowing at 4 inches or more in the summer helps relieve stress, conserve moisture and keeps the lawn cooler. This all promotes deeper rooting and an overall healthier lawn. Remember to cut often enough that you are only removing the top ⅓ of the blade each time you cut.

Watering is the most important thing a homeowner can do to unlock the true potential of their lawn. Watering early in the day 2 to 3 times a week, with 1 to 2 inches of total watering per week allows the lawn to access nutrients, create food through photosynthesis, and keep itself cooler through evaporation.

By implementing these key steps and sticking to the plan, you can expect to have a beautiful, healthy lawn in 2 to 3 seasons. Creating and maintaining an outdoor area that your family will love to spend time in, creating lasting memories for years to come.
