Protect Skaneateles Lake by Using Zero Phosphorus Fertilizers
As winter approaches in the Skaneateles Lake watershed, many residents are looking for turf-care solutions to build a thriving lawn for the following spring and summer.

Most fertilizers are advertised as containing ratios of N-P-K, which stands for Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium. Nitrogen is needed for vigorous growth and contributes to the characteristic green color of turf grass.

Phosphorus aids in root growth early in the growing season but can be very degrading to surface water quality. Potassium aids in the synthesis of plant components and helps the plant process nitrogen more efficiently.

Phosphorus from lawns in the Skaneateles Lake watershed can run off into the lake and produce large algae mats that deplete the water of oxygen needed for fish survival. Excessive algae growth can feed blooms of toxic algae, and in a pristine lake such as Skaneateles, excess algae can turn recreation into an unpleasant and potentially unhealthy experience.
