Biological Activity, Soil Structure and Soil Nutrients
Nature's Select cares for your lawn (and landscape plants) on three fronts, not just one. All lawn care companies care for your lawn through application of soil nutrients, but most stop there. In addition to using a carefully developed core regimen of macro- and micro-nutrients, the Select Biological Program also improves the biological activity in the soil (for sustainability and to improve nutrient availability) and the physical soil structure (for improved root growth and water retention). Together they create a more sustainable, healthier environment for grass growth.
What Does The Select Program Do?
Works with Nature, not against it
“Traditional” lawn programs are built around chemical dependency and are primarily built around high-nitrogen fertilizer applications. The Select Program is built around creating a healthy, sustainable soil for your grass and landscape plants to thrive in, with less dependence on high-dose fertilizers. As soil health improves, the soil helps to feed your grass, trees & shrubs.
Supports a healthy soil microbiome
You have a microbiome, and so does your soil. The Select program recognized that the microorganisms in the soil are essential for plant health even before recent research showed how critically important microbiomes are to almost all living systems. For both people and soil, the system is only as healthy as it's supporting microorganisms.
Minimizes nutrient runoff
The Select Program applies biological components at the right times of the year for grass and landscape plants to take advantage of them based on the season and natural soil activity. We “spoon feed” nutrients and biological components to maximize uptake and minimize runoff. The biological additives also increase the organic content of soil. High organic content helps keep excess nitrogen and phosphorous out of the environment by binding to nutrients and keeping those nutrients available to your plants.
Increases drought tolerance
An additional benefit of our biological additives is that as they improve the soil structure, they allow the soil to hold oxygen and water better. More oxygen results in improved root development, and better water holding means more water available to those roots. Together, more roots and more available water means better performance in drought situations.
Produces visible results
Building a great, healthy soil takes time, and long-term Select customers have built deep dark soil that is healthy and sustainable. While we build sustainable soil for long-term health, we are also applying nutrients for immediate results. Nature's Select regularly includes nutrients that other companies don’t to get better results (improved color, healthy root growth, enhanced nutrient uptake) with less excessive growth.
Can reduce the need for supplemental pest controls
Healthy and vigorous grass and landscape plants are less susceptible to weeds, insects and diseases than unhealthy, stressed plants. As soil and plant health improve, weeds, insects, and diseases are reduced. With continued use of the Select Program, the need for supplemental controls may be reduced as your lawn and landscape become healthier and more resistant.
Creates a beautiful, healthy and vibrant landscape!
When we feed the soil sustainably, the soil gives back as Nature intended, resulting in a beautiful lawn and landscape that your family will enjoy!
