There is a symbiotic relationship between microbes and plant life in a natural soil environment. Plants like grass, trees and food crops depend on microorganisms in the soil to obtain water, ward off dangerous organisms, prevent nutrient loss and break down compounds that could inhibit growth. Soil microbes, in return, benefit from the health of plants growing in the soil. This relationship creates a dynamic living system that is easily broken by human systems that use pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. The chemicals humans use to enhance plant growth can actually destroy the soil system, killing or causing mutation pressure on the soil microbes that all other organisms in the ecosystem need to survive.
What Soil Microbes Do for the Ecosystem
A small handful of healthy soil will include billions of microscopic organisms including fungi, nematodes, protozoa, micro-arthropods and other beneficial bacteria. These microbes decompose organic material while they absorb water and nutrients that would otherwise get lost in the soil; the absorbed water and nutrients is then used by more and more complex creatures. This ecosystem ranges from the tiniest bacteria to the largest mammal predators. Any damage suffered by one part of the system can affect the health of all the others.
Three Levels of the Soil Ecosystem
The first level of the soil ecosystem consists of bacteria and fungi that consume leftover organic matter, nitrogen and nutrients. These organisms act like a nutrient bank that plants can use when they need it. The second level of organisms consists of predators that feed on the bacteria and fungi. Nitrogen and nutrients are metabolized and released into the soil at a slow rate that is beneficial to plant growth. Higher-level predators, like millipedes and earthworms, make up the third level. These animals keep the second-level organisms in check, helping the plants maintain a healthy growth rate. The third level is also made up of bigger predators that keep the smaller ones from over eating. This extensive bio-diversity is what makes all life in the soil ecosystem possible.
How Pesticides Affect Soil Microbes
Pesticides include a large group of chemical agents that attempt to eliminate destructive biological forces in agriculture. These include herbicides for killing plants, insecticides for killing insects, fungicides for killing fungus and bactericides for killing bacteria. While these chemicals supposedly only target specific species, repeated use inevitably kills some microbial life, both good and bad microbes. Research has been able to identify some indirect effects of continued usage of pesticides such as glyphosate. Microbes that survive exposure can be genetically altered in a way that is no longer beneficial to the soil ecosystem and they also become resistant to the chemical intended to kill them.
The destruction or alteration of first-level microbes can affect the entire soil ecosystem all the way up to the largest mammalian predators. A study by Zobiole, et al, from 2011 concluded, “Glyphosate applied to GR soybean, regardless of cultivar, negatively impacts the complex interactions of microbial groups, biochemical activity and root growth that can have subsequent detrimental effects on plant growth and productivity.”1 While my company was conducting compatibility research of our mixture of microbes with various agricultural inputs at UC Davis we discovered that in-lab tests confirmed 100% lactobacillus species and yeast species in our EM-1 product were killed within 60 seconds of contact with RoundUp.2 There were similar results with other synthetic pesticides that demonstrated how potent these chemicals are to microbial life.
What Happens When Soil Microbes Go Out Of Balance
Microbial communities work in concert (or synergy) to out-compete antagonistic (bad) communities of microbes. There is a balance between “good” and “bad” microbes. Many microbial species (the good ones) kill or inhibit bad/pathogenic bacteria, fungi and nematodes (the bad ones) that attack the root systems of plants. Root health is important for the exchange of valuable nutrients in the soil. Good microorganisms improve the soil structure by producing glues (polysaccharides), hyphae strands and tunnels for air and water. Good microbes also eat a lot of toxic material that would otherwise make for poisonous soil. An imbalance of soil microbes can result in parasitic infestations, root disease, breakdown of the soil structure and build-up of toxic compounds. When soils are repeatedly treated with toxic chemicals, the balance between good and bad is disrupted and the soils can actually become toxic to plants.
Ways to Keep Soil Healthy
Microbe numbers in the soil can be maintained by making sure the soil has plenty of digestible plant material (organic matter) with high levels of nitrogen to feed microbes. A blend of proteins from vegetable and animal sources can provide the material to help make this possible. Likewise, regularly watering in a healthy dose of an all-natural microbial inoculant will enhance the soil with beneficial microbes for crops. High-quality organic composts, grass clippings and lawn litter can also benefit soil microbes. And, of course, harsh pesticides should be avoided due to their destructive impact on microbial life forms.

8 Modern Features You Need for Your Home Exterior + Bonus Tips
1. Glass Railing
Extra Tip: Glass Railing for Stairs on Porches and Added Porch Space
2. Green Roofs
3. Sliding Glass Doors and Energy-Efficient Features
Super Tips: Radiant Heating and Cooling Systems
You can also add radiant heating and cooling features to your exterior design because these types of systems are easier on the eyes when compared with traditional HVAC units. Not only do radiant heating and cooling systems look better, but they also offer the added benefit of keeping your home more environmentally friendly since they recirculate air instead of needing to draw in new air after each cycle.
4. Modern Exterior Lighting
Adding exterior lighting is another way you can turn your house into a modern home. This feature is important because it allows people to see your home more easily at night, but there are some other reasons that exterior lighting is great for homeowners. For instance, security lights will help protect your home against intruders and thieves during the evening hours when most burglaries occur.
5. A Glass Wall on the Garden Side
You can also add glass walls around outdoor spaces like pools or gardens for safety purposes and design appeal. These types of enclosures keep children safe without compromising the look of your property since these glass walls blend in with any kind of architecture that you’re using throughout the rest of your property.
6. Placing the Garage at the Front of the House and Front Entrance Areas
With home exteriors all about adding more living space, why not consider placing your garage at the front entrance? This feature is becoming increasingly popular with homeowners because it adds square footage for parking or future expansion room. Plus, this type of layout typically showcases a beautiful front yard and walkway, so you can add amenities like flower gardens or even a water feature to make your home stand out from the crowd!
If you’re going to be remodeling or updating your home exterior, then making sure that the front entrance area of your property is just as nice looking as the rest of it is a must! This is why people are choosing to add unique features like glass railing or crystalia glass best railing for staircase with wood accents because they look aesthetically pleasing and keep people safe when walking into their homes.
7. A Roof Suitable for Storms in High-Wind Areas and Skid Resistance Surfaces
