If I HAD to use organics because of some ordinance or law then I'd surely look into Nature's Lawn.
Thanks Mark.

I would like to at least try these and I think I've got just the place. My Mom bought an older house last year with a decent little yard (yard, not lawn**maybe 60% grass at best**). Should be an ideal testing ground with a minimal investment. The website had nice testemonials but again I'm hesitant to sell a product that I haven't tried. It would be nice to see other folk's results but it's not really cost prohibitive to try on my own.

There are alot of organic products on the market. The purpose of the products are to increase and support microbial activity. they also help chelate other products, so when you apply anything on the lawn you only need in some cases only 50% of product to get the same as 100%.thus reducing p and k environmental impact.
As for making things green, urea a synthetic organic is always found in products or more expensive ones, amino acids
As in weed killing the only organic product is corn gluten a pre emergent. But the timing has to be perfect. If you need any other info pm me
