Raw Bonus episode with about Organic Lawn Care | Hippie Fertilizing | Arthur Olson Jr. | League City, Texas


Hippie Certified

That’s how I learned

I found the dirt

I got a lot of it from my grandmother

I used to volunteer with her by a nature center

to vol

she would bring out snakes

do demonstrations and teach people about the snakes

video was posted about me

your grandmother would be so proud

be with her in the nature center

flowers and gardens and roses

I didn’t realize that was such a big impact

hit ton

Arthur/The Hippie/ Jr

born 87.

I shared

I’m a H town baby

Im 31

in between here and Galveston

I’ve been in lawn care and tree service

how can I learn something and grow as I learn

lawn-care seemed to be something that would keep me moving

where I hate to sit still

that doesn’t work very well

spray some weed killer

get very sick

I’m gonna get older one day

I don’t want to tell

every since I did

it’s been

such a wonderful thing

so I can do something positive

educate others

importance of our environment


supporting soil biology





heres what you do

a lot of people don’t like my answer in the beginning

why do you want to kill it

most have benefits tot eh soil

silly commercials

want you to buy their stuff

it’s not worth it


how do you

a good way to start this

well molasses coffee

consistent rate of nitrogen



other acid

I have a


32 oz resevoir

8 oz of molasses

spray it on anything

won’t hurt anything

If you think your following an organic program

read that package

if it says you can’t touch it with your

they can’t handle stuff

5 times more affected by it


before I started hippie ferry

I had a lawn company

I had a customer

using organic

let me explain this to you

you want me to poison

with the weeds

I heard her pause for a moment

I could hear in her voice it clicked

your little

feed soil first

relax guys

my lawn is killing me

So, to go on to how to feed soil biology

what i’ve heard of

humic  acid

it’s amazing

it’s true

weren’t using

it’s a by product

typically from what’s called

chelates minerals

opens up clay

neutralizes toxins

benefits are such a long laundry list

couldn’t explain it all

make a whole script

serious stuff

good fro theres

good for roots

boost fungal activity in soil

people get freaked out




we see 3-4 types that are bad

100s that are good

before you

are you even working on feeding the good stuff

humic acid

plant based amino

alfalfa meal

cottenseed meal

soy bean

soy fertilizers

they’re ok

better then a big brand

chemical fertilizer

plant based amino acids

don’t smell like manure based

I’m not against

AJ you do organic fertilizer


diluted well

it’s excellent

more of a true slow release

here a lot about that

I used a slow release fertilizer

never heard of a soil release red bull

there’s not really a quality slow release chemical fertilizer


they have to be utilized and eaten up by bacteria

if you did a google search right now


It may be invasive

just starting to learn about native plants

just learning about prairies and wetland

get more knowledge

emphasize hey

pointing at your neighbor

environmental green space

on 4000 square feet of turf

1” per week

that equals up to almost

9920 gallons in one month

let’s take another look

if we can absorb

if we can 8” in a single day

that’s over 27,000 gallons on that same turf




Hurricane harvey


well it has’t rained for

we’re gonna get 6 weeks of a drought it’s gonna drive up

passion and love

soil biology

how much it can take a load off of our infrastructure

if we could absorb 27,000

if you could handle so

we don’t it’s definitely not freezing here like 3 days

feed it

more you build up soil structure

more porosity


longer you let your grass grow

in my area of Texas

log of st adjusting grass

want to cut it down to 2”

if you read better info out now

best height to cut your grass is 4 inches

tell my customers

it’s not a golf course grass

it’s a lawn turf grass

naturally choke out weeds

more you let that grass grow

digging into that soil

further they open it up

pull that water down into there

the longer that it is

raining buckets

the longer that grass is

the more plant diversity in your lawn

break up that

heavy heavy rain

broken up

the more you feed your plants

clover is amazing stuff

naturally pulls nitrogen into the soil


it used to say sow clover into your land

we just kill it


like little oil rigs

mining up calcium and other minerals

soil again

deep tap roots

plant diversity

less likely you are to be affected

trench bug



couldn’t have just sod

didn’t have just st auguring

Chinese bug issues

create a situation where we have more problems

AJ why do you drive a diesel

can’ pull


honda civic

or a smart car

I can’t use one

won’t pull 20k pounds of soil

we  ave silly expectations

I want it to be weed free

raining for like 2 months straight here

can’t stand it as well  if you have different plants

feed different

its something that most people don’t know about

crab grass

also mining up calcium

through their

plant food

feeding the plant as much as we think




you have

essentially building up a super strong immune system

I think it’s wonderful to have a beautiful lawn

mix it up so we can build off

I’m sure there is special practices


low maintenance


butterflies and bees

help our our ecosystem

emissions from gas


better absorption

that doesn’t

help out with blood pressure

more stress you have

can affect your joints and whole body

flowers and different plants

better blood pressure



our true green version of a lawn

I just let my backyard go nuts

The thing that I have learned

something that helps seeds start is fungal activity

Start with a little flower mix

quality compost

vastly different then what you are going to

mulch that hasn’t been aged comp

aged property

has a beautiful bio-diversity

plant flowers



I’ll tell you all the time

use compost


I have my own compost in my own backyard, only use it at my house

don’t use it in my customers

if I’m doing some transplanting


I didn’t cover my

because of compost

everyone who doesn’t have the space or time

I get my stuff

ground up


nature’s way resource

both have quality

new earth

quality soil and compost products

I would guess if you are all over the nation

quality nursery

quality organic nursery

don’t go ask the dude at home depot or lower

ask the person at your

it’s really expensive to

it is black gold

you asked what I think

What do you think about compost?

quit thinking about it

compost your lawn and salad beds

all year long

can’t do that in summer time

compost is too hot

soil thrive

cools down really quickly

good carbon

at my home we put it all by the sink

I help with this

Clear Creek Environmental Foundation

Clear Lake

Quite a few systems

go out on boats

pick up a whole bunch of trash





wildlife is so important

we love to look at it on tv


if we were more environmentally in tune

wouldn’t have to look t



wildlife habitat

stuff affecting our homes

A favorite reading material-book, mag, blog/website etc you can recommend?
