Fertilizers

  • Know your plants - most native and drought tolerant plants don’t require fertilizer when planted in healthy soil.

  • Fertilize when your plants need it - for natives, fertilize from fall through late spring and never in the summer. Use half the amount recommended on product labels.

  • Use the right product in the right quantity. Do not use fertilizer in excessive amounts. Fertilizer in landscape runoff is a significant source of pollution in our creeks and streams.

  • Use compost as an alternative to manufactured fertilizers.

  • Apply fertilizer to the root zones, not on top of the plant. Plants absorb nutrients through their root system, not their leaves.
