|NEW JERSEY’S NEW FERTILIZER LAW:
As many of you probably already know, New Jersey has passed a new state-wide fertilizer law to protect its waterways from excessive nutrient inputs and the resulting environmental degradation. The Borough of Island Heights encourages all homeowners to embrace this new law and help address the problems facing the Barnegat Bay by following its guidelines to the letter.
Remember, healthy soils = healthy lawns, so simple things like keeping soil compaction to a minimum, and a light raking in of compost in the spring and fall (with an additional seeding in the fall if necessary), will do wonders for your lawn without the need for any fertilizer at all.
NEW RULES INCLUDE (but are not limited to):
Fertilizer manufacturers have been given until January 2013, to meet these content standards and to label their products accordingly. In the meantime, consumers will have to make their own calculations (see “How Much Nitrogen” in the following link to the Barnegat Bay Beat newsletter article for an easy-to-use fertilizer calculator).
- Blackout Dates. (fertilizer cannot be applied: Nov 15th – March 1st for consumers, & Dec 1st – March 1st for professionals);
- Fertilizers must contain a minimum 20% Slow-Release Nitrogen with No Phosphorus. (Unless a soil test shows your lawn needs it or you’re trying to establish a new lawn).
