Modern commercial lawn-care products are quite effective at promoting a fast-growing green yard. Unfortunately, the chemicals contained in these products are not always pet or kid safe. For a pet and kid safe alternative, it is necessary to dig in the kitchen pantry and find food based products that offer an equal, if not better, benefit for the lawn and garden.
Heat the water until just before it begins to boil and place in the large mixing bowl.
Add the fish fertilizer, kelp extract, Epsom salts and coffee grounds and allow to sit overnight. Fish fertilizer and kelp extract are rich in nutrients including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which are essential for a green, healthy yard. Kelp also contains plant hormones that enable grass to better fight off disease. Epsom salt is rich in magnesium, a mineral which is lost in alkaline soils.
Mix in the vinegar, molasses, beer, ammonia, dish soap, and tea tree oil. Stir until the mixture is completely dissolved and incorporated. Vinegar and tea tree oil act as natural anti-fungal agents to prevent soil molds. Beer and coffee have anti microbial properties as well as adding additional acidity to the soil. Ammonia breaks down in the soil and releases nitrates for the grass. Finally soap and mouthwash are natural insecticides to keep disease carrying pests away.
Place the mixture is a hose spray attachment and completely cover the yard. Water the yard thoroughly to water in the liquid fertilizer and encourage root absorption.
