Go green with fer­til­izer

Ques­tion: I want healthy land­scap­ing, but I don’t want to use typ­i­cal fer­til­iz­ers. I have heard about al­ter­na­tive fer­til­iz­ers, which have less or no phos­pho­rous. How do these fer­til­iz­ers work?

An­swer: Phos­pho­rous is in com­mon fer­til­iz­ers, but due to en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns, some com­mu­ni­ties limit its use. New fer­til­iz­ers, such as those from Green­View, in­clude an ad­di­tional in­gre­di­ent in­stead of phos­pho­rous.

This for­mu­la­tion im­proves the ef­fec­tive­ness of the plant’s root sys­tem. The plant is able to ab­sorb more ex­ist­ing phos­pho­rous from the soil and so is more drought-re­sis­tant.
