Fall is in the air


By Medicine Hat News on September 9, 2017.

My favourite time of the year. We are all preparing for the fresh fall colours for porch pots and working in the yard amending soils, cleaning up flower beds and making more beds for next year. We are so happy to have an organic product that will help fertilize and prevent the doggie pee stains, and if you do an application of Dog Prevent in fall, spring, and summer you will be happy with the results.

Organic Dog Prevent is derived from feather meal, bone meal, calcium sulphate, kelp and potash. Your lawn prefers a ph range of 6.8 to 7.8 depending where you are and soil typically has a ph of 7.3 to 7.8. Your lawn cannot tolerate the dramatic increase in ph in a concentrated area from dog urine, which typically has a ph of 8 or higher. Dog Prevent works for your lawn in two ways. It reduces the overall ph of your soil to approximately 7 so that the impact of the higher ph urine has much less of an impact to your lawn andit absorbs urine on impact and will then slowly introduce it to your soil, further reducing its ability to increase the ph of your soil.

While we are on the subject of organic solutions to your growing needs we have a natural organic growing soil that you can use to amend your garden, containers, flower beds and anywhere you would like to grow trees and shrubs.

Sea Soil is created by composting a mixture of fish by-products and forest fines. Sea Soil contains abundant amounts of micronutrients to produce healthy plants with good growth, strong roots and bright-coloured blossoms. There is no need for additional commercial fertilizers when applying Sea Soil.

Sea Soil has a weed free status meaning it will not bring weeds in your garden unlike many other soils. I have used it in many applications and love it.
