Humate soil conditioner is an amazing organic soil treatment and microorganism stimulant. One application of humate soil conditioner is similar to applying ½ inch of a high quality organic compost over the surface of the lawn. Humate is one of Organo-Lawn’s most amazing lawn and tree care products, because of how much it builds the soil and how much easier and less expensive it costs compared to performing an organic compost top dressing.
One or two applications of Humate Soil Conditioner per year is a must-do for lawns that have a heavy clay content in the soil. Many of our lawn care customers in the Boulder and Fort Collins areas have found that annual applications of humate have dramatically improved the health of the soils in their residential lawns.
Humate Soil Conditioner is basically million year old organic matter that is mined from the soil. It has a positive effect on the physical, chemical, and biological reactions of the soil leading to an increase in soil fertility and microbial activity. Humate is comprised of Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid, which are proven to build organic matter in soils, stimulate beneficial microbial activity and Humate is a key component in building a living soil. Basically, humate is million year old organic matter that is very similar to coal, but humate is also loaded with organic compounds that will build organic matter in soils.
If the lawn is being watered deeply and infrequently and the lawn is being serviced by Organo-Lawn's full season lawn care program, the visual results after an application of humate soil conditioner will be a deep dark-green and lush lawn. Unlike lawn fertilizers, Humate, will not cause the grass to grow any faster. Humate will make the color of the grass a dark-green color without causing it grow because Humate helps release beneficial nutrients from the soil that are otherwise unavailable to the grass. Humate is a chelating agent and does a great job at releasing the nutrients like nitrogen, iron, potassium, etc., that are otherwise tied-up in the soil. These nutrients are often abundant in the soil, but not usable by plants until a product like humate is applied.
Humate is especially effective in clay soils and is an extremely successful organic soil treatment for lawn in Colorado. The soils around Boulder and Fort Collins are famous for being mostly clay and lacking organic matter.
Humate Soil Conditioner will help build organic matter in soils.
Humate can be applied to a lawn at any time of year. We recommend at least one application of humate soil conditioner per season. It will help break up the clay soils of Colorado.

Humate is “super” compost that
stimulates beneficial microbial activity in the soil and builds
soils that are alive and healthy. Beneficial microbes in soils are similar to
humans. They need air to breathe, water to drink, and food to eat. When Humate
is used in conjunction with core
aeration and the 1-2-3-2-1
lawn watering technique; the soil
will have proper air, water and food to support microbial activity in soils.
According to the Colorado Department of Agriculture we legally cannot claim anything is safe. They even say water is not safe! We can, however, claim that Humate soil conditioner is 1,000,000 year old organic matter that is mined from the earth. It is considered to be non-toxic to people, pets and the environment. In fact Humate is used as a protein supplement in animal feeds. We consider Humate to be a fantastic lawn care product that is non-toxic.
