Using Dynamic Lifter on Lawns

Using Dynamic Lifter on Lawns

Dynamic Lifter is a processed and aged poultry manure-based fertiliser. It has continued to gain considerable acceptance and increased use around the garden and is now a respected and established organic fertiliser product.

The pelletised form of Dynamic Lifter allows it to slowly break down and decompose over a period of time in the garden. It can also be successfully raked into garden beds and soils which increase its efficiency to feed the soil with natural nutrients.

As the use of Dynamic Lifter has increased, many people have furthered the use of it and included it into their lawn fertilising programs. This is an excellent addition to lawn care fertilising, but there are a few points to keep in mind when using Dynamic Lifter as a lawn fertiliser.

Using Dynamic Lifter on Lawns

The slow decomposition of Dynamic Lifter pellets may seem to make them unsuitable for the use on lawns as a fertiliser. Theoretically, they would be removed with the next lawn mowing, making the entire process a waste of time and money. Some careful planning can get around this potential problem and allow us to make use of this wonderful organic fertiliser on our lawns.

Using Dynamic Lifter all year round is not a good option, as during the faster growing seasons the fertiliser pellets would never have enough time to break down between cuts, but not too worry… there are two ways around this problem.

Put Dynamic Lifter onto the lawn directly after lawn mowing, this allows the fertiliser to sit on the lawn and break down for the longest period of time between cuts. Ensure the lawn receives adequate water between now and the next lawn mowing, this aids in breaking down the Dynamic Lifter pellets.

If possible, the next lawn mowing should be done without a catcher, this will allow the left-over pellets to go through the mower blades and be pushed deeper into the leaf of the lawn. The lawn clippings are also full of Nitrogen, water and other nutrients which are a great food source for lawns, so an occasional mow without a catcher is recommended – at least a couple each year.

Dynamic Lifter in Winter

Winter can also be a great time of the year to use Dynamic Lifter on lawns. The longer period of time between mowing, and the free and abundant water provided by the rain, gives the fertiliser pellets plenty of time to decompose. A fertilising program which includes the Winter application of Dynamic Lifter can be a great idea.
