When we refer to “synthetic chemicals” at Turf Clips, we mean anything containing chemicals, no matter if it is from nature or the laboratory. Many are synthesized from oil. These products overlook their effects on soil, water, and air quality. Synthetic chemicals often treat symptoms of plants instead of the underlying cause of the issue. Pure chemicals use will make soil less nutritious, and lessen plants ability to access nutrition. Both soil and plants therefore become increasingly dependent on the chemical fertilizers. Just like a drug addict.
