Posted by Amy Schauber on Jun 22, 2016 7:35:53 AM

Dog urine can be a problem on lawns because of the concentrated amount of nitrogen and salt found within.

What will happen if it rains on my Terra Tote before I have a chance to install it?

Posted by Ryan Wolfe on Apr 30, 2016 9:10:27 AM

Have you ever had bulk soil or compost delivered by a dump truck? They just dump it on your lawn or driveway and if it rains your bulk products turn into a muddy mess. This is part of the reason Terra Totes are so great. There is no mess left behind from a pile of bulk soil and we can place the totes where most dumptrucks cannot go.

Grass produces food materials through photosynthesis, providing the plant the energy it needs to function. Photosynthesis  requires energy from sunlight, carbon dioxide from the air and water from the soil. If any of these factors are missing from the equation it can have a negative impact on your lawn. For purposes of this article we will only cover the sunlight requirements of various grasses.
