    Charlotte County Fertilizer Ordinance

    Keep in mind for your spring fertilizations that Charlotte County passed a fertilizer ordinance in March of 2008 for turf applications. The ordinance states that:


    1) Phosphorus applications shall not exceed 0.25 pounds per 1000 square feet per application and shall not exceed 0.5 pounds per 1000 sq. ft. per year.


    2)Nitrogen fertilizer must contain at least 50% slow-release Nitrogen.

    3) If fertilizer is within 3-10 feet from a water body or wetland, a deflector shield must be used on all broadcast spreaders. Fertilizer may not be applied within 3 feet of the water body or wetland.


    4) No grass clippings, vegetative material, or vegetative debris may be deposited in storm water drains, ditches, conveyances, water bodies or roadways.


    5) All applicators of fertilizer (except homeowners on their own property) must receive training and certification in a Charlotte County –approved Best Management Practices (BMP) training program.


    6) Fertilizer may not be applied within 10’ of any water body or wetland (or 3’ if a deflector shield is used). Nofertilizer may be applied to impervious (non-porous) surfaces,and any spillage must be removed. 

    If you contract with anyone to fertilize your lawn, even if it is a neighbor, they must have the required BMP training certification and the certification decal should be on their vehicle. They must follow the above ordinance rules.
