Lawn and Garden Terms for New Home Owners

Owning your own home comes with a fair amount of responsibilities. One of the biggest is the care and treatment of the home's landscaping and lawn. While many people take right to the rigors of spreading fertilizer and watering the grass, it's not everyone's cup of tea. And, unless you grew up on a farm, there's a good chance you have no idea how to keep your new backyard looking green and healthy. On top of that, navigating big box retailers to find home and garden products can be maddening. If you're a new home/lawn owner here are some terms you should be familiar with.

  • Chlorophyll - This is the chemical that gives leaves and plants their green color. If the plants in the garden aren't green, they're probably dying.
  • Compost - This term refers to decomposing organic matter that's used to fertilize lawns and gardens. It usually consists of old vegetable matter and kitchen scraps. As the material decomposes, it releases valuable chemical compounds into the soil it's been spread on.
  • Container Garden - This term refers to gardens that are kept in boxes or pots above ground. Most big box retailers carry a large selection of containers that are suitable for growing vegetables and herbs.
  • Fertilizer - This is any substance that is added to soil to promote plant growth. It can, but does not have to be, made from animal dung. Normally, a fertilizer treatment is applied in the spring before planting.
  • Manure - Animal dung that is used as a fertilizer to promote plant growth. Most small farmers will harvest manure for their livestock to fertilize their crops.
  • Organic - A method of farming that relies on all natural fertilizers and pesticides for plant growth and weed and pest control.

    Retail fertilizers are commonly sold in garden centers and home improvement stores all over the US. Many of these natural and organic products are used to fertilize gardens, lawns, and soil around trees. This in turn makes the soil or dirt more productive for growth and plant or flower development. In this day and age, it is common for residential homeowners to fertilize their grass, trees, flower beds, and vegetable gardens. Some of the materials used to do this are compost, animal manure, and liquid fertilizers that offer components like nitrogen and phosphorus. There are all kinds of plant, lawn, and tree fertilizer products sold in retail nurseries and local gardening stores. However, it is important that the application of these products is timed correctly for optimal growth. While some organic plant fertilizers are used in the spring, others can be applied in the before winter to protect grass. There are several company locations and brand names in this industry. As you may know, the type of agriculture, seeding, farming, or perennial flowers plays a major role in the type of plant fertilizer needed for the job. Also, while the prices of some organic fertilizers for gardening or tree planting are cheap, others are quite pricey. Visit a local nursery or garden shop in order to lean more about plant and flower fertilizers, ammonia products, yard care, and natural compost made from yard debris. This way, you can get specific answers to any questions you may have regarding fertilizer products available at retail stores.
