You don't need to use chemical fertilizers if you don't want to. There are numerous naturally occurring substances that will supply the nutrients your lawn needs. One of the most easily obtained is the bag of clippings from your lawn. Grass clippings are rich sources of Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium, the nutrients your grass needs the most of. Because they are stored in plant tissue, decomposition of grass clippings slowly releases the nutrients to the turf. If you have a mulching mower, mow your lawn frequently and leave the clippings on the lawn.
