Maintain your lawn using eco friendly ingredients. Try these as a substitute for the commercially available chemicals.

Organic Lawn Fertilizer: Mix 4 parts fish meal with 1 part dolomite lime, 1 part rock phosphate and 1 part kelp meal.

Kill Dandelions with a natural weed killer: Mixing up a teaspoon of liquid dish detergent with one cup of white vinegar gives you a spray that adheres to the unwanted plant, burning the foliage.

Use these formulations for a natural pest control.

Oil mixture for plants: Mix 1 cup of canola oil and a tablespoon of liquid dishwashing soap. Dilute to 1 gallon with water. Spray on leaves of plants every few days.

Garlic and pepper for lawn: Combine ½ cup of hot peppers, ½ cup of garlic cloves and 1 pint of water. Allow to step for 24 hours in full sun. Strain and spray the liquid to infected areas of your lawn.
