Clever Gardening Technique

Add Sulfur to Lawn Fertilizer
Add sulfur to lawn fertilizer to control fungus disease. When you fertilize your lawn to encourage it to grow, you create the perfect environment for fungus disease to develop, especially in wet weather. Sulfur will control a multitude of fungus diseases and besides, it's organic and costs much less than commercial fungicides. It's also much safer to use.
