Grass Problems


  1. Poor color. Weak grass plants. Thin areas. Bare spots.


  1. Heavy mat & thatch accumulation at soil surface


  1. Short, weak roots. Sod does not “knit” to the soil. Grass requires frequent watering


  1. Brown spots. Dead areas. Fungus or disease. Insects.


  1. Weeds

Soil Problems


  1. Tight, compacted soil. Puddling, run-off. Erosion. Low spots, slopes.


  1. Loose, sandy soil. Poor water retention. Frequent fertilization and watering needed.


  1. Grass appears dry, even when soil is wet. Frequent watering is required.

GRASS

GRASS

SOIL

Problem:

Poor color. Weak grass plants. Thin areas. Bare spots.


Cause:

Frequent or heavy applications of synthetic, high salt fertilizers that contain too much or only one of the primary nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash).


Control/Prevention:

Stop using synthetic, high salt fertilizers and chemicals. Strengthen weak grass by providing a complete balanced diet of Nutrimax organic-based nutrients.


Nutrimax Solutions:

Nutrimax products provide a balanced diet of primary, secondary, and micro-nutrients for strong, deep green grass plants that will spread naturally into thin areas to fill bare spots.

GRASS

Problem:

Heavy mat & thatch accumulation at soil surface.


Cause:

Slow dissolving fertilizers and frequent, light watering encourages mat and thatch accumulation.


Control/Prevention:

Stop using synthetic, high salt fertilizers and chemicals. Strengthen weak grass by providing a complete balanced diet of Nutrimax organic-based nutrients.


Nutrimax Solutions:

Nutrimax products provide a balanced diet of primary, secondary, and micro-nutrients for strong, deep green grass plants that will spread naturally into thin areas to fill bare spots.

Problem:

Short, weak roots. Sod does not “knit” to the soil. Grass requires frequent watering.


Cause:

Use of unbalanced conventional fertilizers combined with tightly compacted soil. Each fertilizer application increases problems by adding more salts and acidity to the soil, which then restricts growth.


Control/Prevention:

Stop using toxic materials and non natural management methods. Follow the Nutrimax natural, organic lawn program to correct problems and to promote robust grass plant root growth.


Nutrimax Solutions:

Nutrimax products increase root depth and thickness and help loosen and improve soil. Deeper roots draw up deep moisture when surface soil is dry. Thicker roots store nutrients for longer periods. Sod “knits” to soil due to deeper root growth.

GRASS

Problem:

Weeds.


Cause:

Standard synthetic fertilizers provide an unbalanced diet that helps weaken grass. Soil compacts and become less productive, which encourages weed invasion. As weeds take over more harsh chemical herbicides are used.


Control/Prevention:

Eradicate the weeds using Nutrimax management methods. Custom formulate a natural Nutrimax program to eliminate soil deficiencies and to provide a balanced, organic based diet for healthy grass growth.


Nutrimax Solutions:

Nutrimax’s premium selective herbicide will eradicate weeds. Properly balanced nutrients help produce healthy, robust grass plants that will fill in areas where weeds have been eliminated. Future use of herbicides are greatly reduced.

GRASS

GRASS

Problem:

Brown spots. Dead areas. Fungus or disease. Insects.


Cause:

Weak grass plants cannot resist fungus, disease, and insect attack. Accumulated mat and thatch offer ideal surface conditions for fungal spores and breeding of insects.


Control/Prevention:

Use Nutrimax management methods to eliminate problem conditions and soil deficiencies. Strengthen grass plants and promote growth with a balanced organic diet.


Nutrimax Solutions:

Nutrimax products encourage strong grass plants and deep-growing roots. Thick mat and thatch accumulation is reduced, which leads to resistance to disease and insect attack.

Problem:

Tight, compacted soil. Puddling, run-off. Erosion.

Low spots, slopes.


Cause:

Local clay and other heavy soils lack the proper porosity and organic matter. High salt, acid forming characteristics of standard fertilizers lead to even tighter soils that further restrict deep grass root growth and proper absorption of nutrients.


Control/Prevention:

Stop using toxic, high salt fertilizer and chemicals. Loosen tight, compacted soils to allow better penetration of air, water, and nutrients. Leach out existing toxic salts and chemicals. Revitalize the soil with all of the natural nutrients required for healthy plant growth.


Nutrimax Solutions:

Nutrimax general natural and organic soil conditioners and soil penetrants open up tight soils. Deep root growth follows, improving soil condition and permitting natural penetration of water, even on slopes and low spots. Run-off and erosion problems are reduced.

SOIL

Problem:

Loose, sandy soil. Poor water retention. Frequent fertilization and watering needed.


Cause:

Sandy soils lack proper aggregates and organic matter to hold moisture and nutrients long enough to benefit plants. High salt, high nitrogen fertilizers deplete organic matter reduce water retention capacity of the soil.


Control/Prevention:

Leach out toxic salts and chemicals. Recharge the soil with all of the nutrients required for healthy plant growth and reproduction of micro-organisms.


Nutrimax Solutions:

Nutrimax natural organic soil conditioners help revitalize the soil by encouraging accumulation of organic matter. This leads to increased nutrient and water retention capacity.

SOIL

SOIL

Problem:

Grass appears dry, even when soil is wet. Frequent watering is required.


Cause:

Grass stress condition is causes by accumulation of high salts from standard fertilizers. Reverse osmosis occurs. Water is drawn from the plant into salty soil, prevents natural root absorption. Continued fertilizer use adds more salt residues to the soil.


Control/Prevention:

Apply a natural catalytic enzyme to eliminate toxic salts and chemicals from the soil.


Nutrimax Solutions:

Nutrimax detox soil conditioner leeches out toxic salts and chemicals from soils without  damaging grass roots. Nutrimax organic penetrants loosen up the soil. Healthy grass roots grow deeper and more robust.
