Organic Fertilizer Application
Keep plants healthy with nitrogen-free fertilizing methods tailored for Big Sky’s soil profile.
Organic fertilizers are chemical free fertilizers that enhance your landscapes' health using natural compounds such as humic acid, fulvic acid, amino acids, and biological microaggregates. Organic fertilizers help develop balanced soil food webs over time which in turn increases the water holding capacity of soil. Higher holding capacities buffer against droughts and improve water uptake by plants.
Why Use Organic Fertilizers?
Organic fertilizers are more suitable for the Big Sky watershed, as they prevent eutrophication of our subsurface water networks, rivers, and lakes. Heavy application of fertilizers high in nitrogen and phosphorus during wet periods can lead to watershed damage as these substances promote algae blooms and dead zones. Nitrogen loading of the Gallatin River has been identified as a local water quality concern, so at Big Sky Landscaping we aim to reduce the use of non-essential nitrogen-based fertilizers. Plus, chemical-free fertilizers are just as effective here in Big Sky!
Organic fertilizers improve the health of both lawns and trees. Our team will assess your landscape and apply the correct type and quantity of fertilizer to keep your property nourished. Our products aim to enhance the soil profile of your property by introducing microbes and enzymes that improve soil fertility, reduce compaction, and allow for better root zone development.
