Switching to an organic lawn doesn't require a lot of sacrifice or high costs, according to Peter Sleight. Organic fertilizer feeds the soil, not plants, and dissolves slowly, he notes. Milorganite is a popular organic fertilizer that is used on many golf courses, writes Sleight. Ringer Lawn Restore is a pricier organic lawn fertilizer but doesn't contain manure and looks and smells more like a traditional synthetic fertilizer, he adds.
