Reduced Need for Herbicides and Pesticides
In addition to reducing water and fertilizer needs, the need for herbicides and pesticides is reduced to the higher health level of the entire landscape. Insects attack weak plants so a weak landscape becomes a magnet to pests, increasing the need for pesticides. Thin turf has bare spots that are the perfect home for weed seeds to settle and to germinate. A thick, properly nourished turf fills in the bare spots and crowds out potential homes for weeds.
