Sanibel Fertilizer Blackout Period July 1-September 30


A reminder that today, July 1, begins the fertilizer blackout period for Sanibel. From July 1-September 30, fertilizers containing nitrogen and phosphorous cannot be applied to the landscape. This practice helps to reduce the likelihood of fertilizer being washed into waterbodies and stormwater catchment systems, and becoming a food source for algae. Do your part to protect our local waters by adhering to Sanibel’s fertilizer ordinance!
