any suggestions on making a natural lawn fertilizer?
Epsom salts are one of the best natural lawn fertilizers around? They’re composed of magnesium and sulfur, both of which are highly beneficial to grass. Magnesium kick-starts seed germination and is also a player in manufacturing chlorophyll, the substance that plants create from sunlight in order to feed themselves. Sulfur, meanwhile, also helps with chlorophyll, while simultaneously enhancing the effects of other fertilizer ingredients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. It also deters certain pests such as ground worms. With all these benefits, it’s no wonder that savvy lawn care specialists have been using Epsom salts for years. You can either sprinkle them on your lawn using a spreader or make a liquid solution out of them by adding some water and putting the mixture in a spray bottle.
OR 1 bottle of beer (it can be anything you have!)
1 cup mild baby shampoo( DO NOT use anti-bacterial)
1 cup club soda (any type you have or find for cheap)
¼ cup – 1/2 cup Epsom (NOT scented)
1 cup household ammonia (same as ammonium hydroxide)
