Add seaweed to your fertilizer
Seaweed is a beneficial additive for plants, according to Earth Easy. It is often successful at repelling pests like slugs, for example. In addition, seaweed is full of elements such as iron, zinc, barium, calcium and magnesium. All of these nutrients are helpful in your plants' development and growth. If you're looking for a natural alternative to mulch, seaweed can suffice as well. By adding seaweed to your mulch, you will reduce the need to water and weed your garden, according to the Organic Authority.
Just in case you needed any more convincing that you should give seaweed a try in your own home garden, you should know that seaweed can be used as a fertilizer in virtually any form. You can take seaweed you found in the ocean and add it straight to your soil or dry it out and sprinkle it in as powder, according to to Lawns for You. There are even concentrated forms of seaweed available in liquid form, so you can spray the beneficial nutrients right on to your garden.
