Schulz 'Good Stuff' Fertilizer is the very best fertilizer,
 whether synthetic, natural or organic.

Schulz 'Good Stuff' Fertilizer is quite different and superior to other fertilizers. Providing the proper nutrients in the proper amounts and proper proportions  at the proper time in the growth cycle of the plant is just one aspect. More important is the revitalization and colonization of the organisms that live in the soil, that do the work, that cause those nutrients to become solubilized and made available to the desired crop. Nutrients are released at a constant and consistent measured rate over a longer period of time throughout the growing season. The release rate insures proper cellular development and plant health. No forced growth.

Our proprietary formula invigorates and feeds soil organisms and creates a soil environment that causes plant roots to grow as much as 30% larger and longer than can be achieved with other fertilizers. The resulting increase in soil fertility allows healthier more vigorous plants with bigger, longer, deeper roots to out compete weeds without employing dangerous chemicals. Roots are key to plant health.

The resulting density of the turf actually forces out weeds and keeps them out. Realizing that weeds are opportunistic; not invasive, then turf density is an effective preventative against weeds. Chemicals become unnecessary.

Whether starting a new lawn or repairing your existing lawn, all-natural Good Stuff Lawn Food could be the missing ingredient to your lawn care routine.You put a lot of time and energy into making sure your lawn looks great, but do you know what condition your lawn’s soil is in? Your soil's ability to promote turf growth can be impacted by many factors including fertilizers, insecticides, and fungicides. All of these do impact the living microorganisms found in your lawn’s soil. 

Chemicals are overused today. It is time for a correction. A lush green lawn depends on healthy living soil, the kind that is filled with an abundance of living micro-organisms. Fertilizers feed the plant, Good Stuff Lawn Food feeds the soil and grows the root structure of the turf, just like Mother Nature Intended.

There are a lot of ways to take care of your lawn. But having Schulz Organics keep it thick, green and healthy is the wise choice for today’s busy homeowners. In fact, many of your neighbors have relied on our professional results for years. Great lawns made easy…that’s the real Schulz Organics difference.

UNDERSTANDING FERTILIZER & NUTRIENT FUNCTIONS

The ideal fertilizer should be designed to completely fulfill the nutritional requirements of the plant it serves. 

The three major components of a typical fertilizer are Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium; often referred to by their chemical symbols "N", "P", and "K". Thus a fertilizer with a guaranteed analysis of 9-0-5 would consist of 9% Nitrogen (N), 0% Phosphorus (P2O5), and 5% Potassium(K2O). 

Mineral nutrients are classified as major, secondary, and minor elements. No one essential nutrient is of greater importance than any other. All of the essential elements are necessary for proper development of turfgrass, but the major and secondary elements are needed in larger quantities than the minor elements.

Major Elements: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium

Nitrogen is an essential part of all living matter. It is the basis for amino acids, which combine to form proteins. Nitrogen is associated with above ground vegetation growth and density of turf, as well as its deep green color. Deficiency is noticed in turf that has turned light green or yellow. The blades start dying at the tip and progress along the midrib until the entire leaf is dead. 

Phosphorus is the key nutrient in seeding development since it contributes so much to initial root development and seed formation. It is directly related to the vital growth process. Deficiency is most likely to be observed in seedling growth when new seedlings are slow to develop. On established grasses the leaves tend to turn purple.

Potassium otherwise known as potash is found in large quantities in the plant. Potassium is associated with winter hardiness and disease resistance in turf. Deficiency will appear in the blades becoming streaked with yellow, turn brown at the tips and eventually die. Susceptibility to disease and winter injury is also increased. 

Secondary Elements: Sulfur, Calcium, and Magnesium 

A soil may be alkaline, acidic or essentially neutral. The alkalinity or acidity of a soil is measured by its pH. 

All pH values occur somewhere in a scale running from 0 to 14. A pH of 7 is neutral with numbers less than 7 indicating acidity and numbers over 7 being alkaline. It is commonly accepted that a pH range of 6.5 to 7 is good for raising turfgrasses. This is because overall nutrient availability is at its maximum in this range. Any time the pH strays too far from this range the nutrients become less available and more difficult for the plant to utilize. 

It is possible to improve soil pH by adding high-calcium lime to acidic soils or by adding sulfur, in various forms, to alkaline soils. It is wise to have a soil test run to determine if the pH needs to be raised, lowered, or left as is. 

Sulfur is an essential part of certain amino acids and proteins. Together with nitrogen this element makes new protoplasm, which enables plant cell growth. Deficiency is similar to that of nitrogen in that the leaves will turn light green or yellow, and then turn brown and eventually die. 

Minor Elements: Iron, Manganese, Copper, Boron,
                               Chlorine,Molybdenum, and Zinc 

Iron plays an integral part in chlorophyll production and is also a part of many enzymes. It is responsible for giving turf its deep green color. Deficiency symptoms include chlorotic or even white young leaves due to a reduction or loss of chlorophyll.

The Grass is Greener ... and Safer!

Lawns may have been invented in Europe, but they've reached their apotheosis in North America. For those in the U.S. of A, that green, green grass ranks right up there with apple pie, backyard barbecues and softball. For Canadians it's proof of place, both a responsibility and a privilege, like wearing decent clothes when you leave the house. Keep your teeth clean and your grass green. In the lower 48 states and much of southern Canada, grass is practically an obsession.

The problem with the perfect lawn is that it wreaks havoc on both your wallet and the environment. Between 30 and 40 million acres of land in the U.S. are devoted to turfgrass (see Curbing the Lawn), and Americans collectively spend big bucks -- about $40 billion annually -- on seed, sod and chemicals. In Canada, which has around one tenth the population of the U.S., sales from all lawn and garden products have risen steadily over the past five years, to over $2 billion by 2007. Click on "Canadian lawns and gardens: Where are they the 'greenest'?" for more on this.

Much of that money goes to products that "help" grass only in the most superficial ways and that degrade the soil, pollute any water they reach, and pose serious health threats to humans, their pets, and any wildlife in the area, including birds. As people become aware of these facts, attitudes towards conventional fertilizers and pesticides are beginning to change. In Canada, over 130 communities and two entire provinces have passed laws severely restricting pesticide use, so homeowners and city park services are going organic perforce. In the U.S., where municipalities in many states lack the power to pass such comprehensive laws, a number of cities and towns have restricted the use of pesticides on school grounds or in parks. Furthermore, while many pesticides remain legal in the States, more and more people are becoming aware of the strain that they place on the eco-system. All across North America, people are not only considering going green, but whether the perfect lawn is worth the long-term environmental price we're paying for it.

Tip: Considering organic lawn care for a healthy, beautiful yard? If so, I suggest Planet Natural for their large selection and competitive prices.

Many of us have inherited our lawns and our ideas about how to care for them from an earlier era, when pesticides seemed safe and water inexhaustible. Since the mid-1950s, when the ideal of the weed-free carpet-like lawn took shape, pesticides -- meaning insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides -- have often been used routinely and preemptively, with the result that synthetic chemicals are often overused on lawns. In fact, one 1996 survey found that more pesticides are used on turfgrass than on any other ornamental (see Sustainable Turf Care).

We've inherited more than our maintenance standards and procedures; we've inherited the grass itself. Look around almost any town and you'll see Kentucky bluegrass, still one of the most prevalent grasses in North America. It makes for a beautiful lawn but requires enormous amounts of water, which hurts both the environment and your pocketbook. A Sustainable Landscaping presentation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that watering lawns accounts for 30 to 60 percent of water consumption during the summer months.

There are other costs of planting a grass that isn't well suited to the land or its rainfall. We end up using tons of soil amendments, fertilizers and pesticides to keep things looking good. (Tons here is not just an expression. Estimates vary, but Americans dump approximately seventy million tons of fertilizer and seventy to ninety million pounds of pesticides on their lawns each year.)

Yet lawns, combined with gardens and other landscaping, do a lot of good. They muffle traffic and other noise pollution, and like all green plants, lawns help reduce carbon dioxide levels. They act as filters, removing pollutants from the air that we breath. And nothing beats grass as a place for kids to play.

Going organic doesn't mean you have to give up your lawn, and it certainly doesn't mean that you have to give up the rest of your life tending for your lawn. It means planting what will do well in your climate, watering deeply but infrequently, and avoiding the use of dangerous and expensive chemical fertilizers and pesticides. This site should help, whether you're ready to dive in head first, or just want to dip a toe in organic waters.
​"A Chemical Reaction", is a 70 minute feature documentary movie that tells the story of one of the most powerful and effective community initiatives in the history of North America. It started with one lone voice in 1984. Dr. June Irwin, a dermatologist, noticed a connection between her patients’ health conditions and their exposure to chemical pesticides and herbicides. With relentless persistence she brought her concerns to town meetings to warn her fellow citizens that the chemicals they were putting on their lawns posed severe health risks and had unknown side effects on the environment. This movie examines the lawsuit of a small town that passed a local ordinance prohibiting the application of weed and insect killers.

Going organic doesn't mean you have to give up your lawn, and it certainly doesn't mean that you have to give up the rest of your life tending for your lawn. It means planting what will do well in your climate, watering deeply but infrequently, and avoiding the use of dangerous and expensive chemical fertilizers and pesticides. This site should help, whether you're ready to dive in head first, or just want to dip a toe in organic waters.

The Goal Is To Improve the Soil and Thereby the Quality and Vigor of the Crop.

The goal of organic gardeners is to improve the soil and thereby improve the quality and vigor of the crop. To the homeowner this means growing a better lawn and garden. 

For organic gardeners, creating a living soil, rich in humus and nutrients, is the key to growing great fruits and vegetables, abundant flowers, and long-lived ornamental trees and shrubs. The overall fertility and viability of the soil, rather than the application of fertilizers as quick fixes, is at the very heart of organic gardening. 

But, like all gardeners, organic gardeners have to start somewhere. Your soil may be deficient in certain nutrients, it may not have excellent soil structure, or its pH may be too high or too low. Unless you’ve lucked into the perfect soil, you’re going to have to work to make it ideal for gardening. 

Chemical vs. Organic 

Many organic materials serve as both fertilizers and soil conditioners—they feed both soils and plants. This is one of the most important differences between a chemical approach and an organic approach toward soil care and fertilizing. Soluble chemical fertilizers contain mineral salts that plant roots can absorb quickly. However, these salts do not provide a food source for soil microorganisms and earthworms, and will even repel earthworms because they acidify the soil. Over time, soils treated only with synthetic chemical fertilizers lose organic matter and the all-important living organisms that help to build a quality soil. As soil structure declines and water-holding capacity diminishes, more and more of the chemical fertilizer applied will leach through the soil. In turn, it will take ever-increasing amounts of chemicals to stimulate plant growth. When you use organic fertilizers, you avoid throwing your soil into this kind of crisis condition. 

The manufacturing process of most chemical fertilizers depends on nonrenewable resources, such as coal and natural gas. Others are made by treating rock minerals with acids to make them more soluble. Fortunately, there are more and more truly organic fertilizers coming on the market. These products are made from natural plant and animal materials or from mined rock minerals. However, the national standards that define and distinguish organic fertilizers from chemical fertilizers are complicated, so it’s hard to be sure that a commercial fertilizer product labeled “organic” truly contains only safe, natural ingredients. Look for products labeled “natural organic,” “slow release,” and “low analysis.” Be wary of products labeled organic that have an NPK (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) ratio that adds up to more than 15. Ask a reputable garden center owner to recommend fertilizer brands that meet organic standards. 

Using Organic Fertilizers 

If you’re a gardener who’s making the switch from chemical to organic fertilizers, you may be afraid that using organic materials will be more complicated and less convenient than using premixed chemical fertilizers. Not so! Organic fertilizer blends can be just as convenient and effective as blended synthetic fertilizers. You don’t need to custom feed your plants organically unless it’s an activity you enjoy
