Doing lawn care and keeping it green is not easy and in fact it costs money. You might be spending around $300-$500 a year to keep your grass looking green – and that’s for fertilizer and weed killers only. And that amount itself could at least be used to buy something else.
One time I was looking on my lawn and I remembered my mother in law putting sugar on a pot of soil before she planting something that happened a few years ago. I did not ask why on that time because it might sound disrespectful. Then I asked my dad the possible reason why. Then my dad said that sugar can act as a natural fertilizer on soil. So, I did some research and found out that it was true. Now, we are not saying to throw your chemical fertilizers and weed killers away. Sugar fertilizes your lawn using a different approach. So, you’ll still need those fertilizers and weed killers.
Below are the reasons how can sugar can fertilize your lawn and its benefits that it can give when applied to your lawn.

There is no required or recommended amount of sugar that a soil will need. Plus, it is chemical free. So, you do not need to worry about the possibility of harming your lawn because of too much sugar.
