Umweltpionier Lawn Guideline

Application
Due to the powder form of the Umweltpionier lawn fertilizer a suitable spreading carriage should definitely be used to achieve a uniform distribution. In general, a spreading carriage is suitable already if the trickling through the spreading material is prevented during standstill. Not all spreading carriages have this function, but is strongly recommended . Fertilize crisscross at smaller level (1 to 2) until the total amount of fertilizer is applied.

Irrigation
Useful during heat waves. Then, however, only once a week intensively, at least 10 liters per m² ( up to 30 liters per square meter ) . This way the water penetrates deeply into the ground and is there longer available because it does not evaporate. The grass roots deep down and is more robust.

Fertilisation
Grass is a high quality plant that needs a lot of nutrients. Synthetic fertilizers bring this indeed in the ground, but the salt linkage destroys the crumb structure of the soil resistant. This leads to soil compaction, waterlogging, weed growth and destruction of the microbial soil life. Umweltpionier natural fertilizers on the other hand ensure a balanced diet of soil life on a 100% natural base.

Dosage
At the first use: Apply 100 grams per m². This corresponds to an area of ​​250 m² a fertilizer rate of 25 kg. Thereafter, the dosage of up to 50 g per m² can be reduced. The application is carried out 2 to 3 times a year.

Loamey Soil
Loamy , heavy soil can be loosened in the medium term through annual application of silica sand with a grain size 0-1 mm or 0-2 mm . Renouncement of chemical – synthetic substances and the same regular fertilization using a full organic natural fertilizer supports the development of an intact and active soil life. Plow Humus is increasingly formed . Soil fertility and nutrient availability increases. The base serves as food for plants.

Mowing
Leave grasses at least 4 cm high and don’t mow more than one third of the height: Better 2 times per week high than 1 time every 2 weeks low, more is more ! 90 % of the weed grows in the light, therefore the grass needs to shade the ground.

Moss
If too few nutrients are in the soil, the grass can not grow , because it is not strengthened. Compacted soil produces waterlogging. The water cannot penetrate into deeper layers and remains on the surface – a paradise for moss. Strong shading promotes moss growth.
Measures:
fertilize higher doses, so that the grass is able to better handle with the circumstances, can grow densely, thus minimizing the moss . Do not use synthetic fertilizers as these cause compaction of soils (among other things ) !

Weed
90 % of the weed grows in the light. When sunlight shines directly on the ground, they germinate quickly and grow faster than grass. In dry periods weed can spread within a few hours, so watering and mowing not too low is very important!

The lawn must be adequately fertilized, so it can be as tight as possible and leaves less room for the weeds to grow and flourish . A well-fed lawn has the upper hand against weeds! Often, and not less than 4 cm mowing in height. Irrigate Intensive. Fertilize abundant.

A healthy lawn that grows on fertile, well feeded soil and optimally maintained, is a natural playground for humans and animals.

An “English lawn ” is impossible without the use of chemical, highly toxic “weed killers” . The use of such products causes not only the desired effect but additional negative side effects : soil compaction , leaching toxins into groundwater, damage to flora and fauna. In addition, the dose must be constantly increased in order to achieve a consistent effect.

Scarifying
Only necessary if the soil heavily matted with dead grass and only if the ground is actually “touch-dry”. Then scarify when the grass growth is intense. Normally this is the case in the period April/May. If the lawn gets optimal care (watering, mowing, fertilising), scarifying is not necessary. WARNING: scarifying promotes weed growth – light!

Point in Time
During the year, a first use is recommended by March/April. In any case, only when the frozen ground may again completely thawed and active. Constant warmer temperatures and recognizable growth of the grasses indicate a ready state.

Experience has shown that an additional fertilization in summer is recommended at constantly high temperatures. This fits in the months of August/September.

A final fertilization in late autumn ensures that the nutrients feed the soil over the winter. This ensures that the grass is growing strongly in the following spring.
