Do you feel totally overwhelmed by the choices in fertilizer that are available? Do you wish that you could have a professional keep your lawn healthy so you could simply relax and enjoy it?
As a homeowner who loves your lawn, you know that fertilizer plays an important role in helping achieve a lawn that is healthy, green and lush.
But what is the best fertilizer to use?
There is no one perfect or absolute best fertilizer to purchase for your lawn and there are many good ones available. Nitrogen is the most important nutrient; the percentage of nitrogen in fertilizer is expressed as the first number in the series of three on the fertilizer bag.
Most quality lawn fertilizers offer a balance of fast and controlled release sources to offer a fertilizer that will provide some quick color (without a big surge of growth) and some long-lasting nitrogen.
A healthy lawn can be achieved by applying lawn fertilizer. Application of turf fertilizer at regular intervals helps to improve your lawn’s health and appearance as it contains essential nutrients.
Better color, thick grass, better growth and tolerance to stress are Healthy lawn factors.
Healthy lawns also:
- Resist stress
- Have fewer weeds and insects
- Reduce run-off and erosion
- Provide cooling effect in the immediate surroundings
Our trained lawn care specialist will help you to decide which lawn nutrients are essential for your lawn, as well as proper doses which will produce a lush green and thick lawn.
Your lawn is an ecosystem unto itself and without proper balance, you may end up with insect or lawn disease damage. Regular fertilization can keep weeds in check and prevent insects like grub worms from damaging your lawn.
When you work with us, we don’t lock you into a specific lawn fertilization plan. We do recommend multiple applications to combat the various threats that pop up over the change of seasons. We may also recommend that fertilizer be used in conjunction with another service, such as aeration, for optimum results.
Fertilizer serves a variety of purposes depending on when it is applied. In early spring, it promotes growth and prevents crabgrass. In the summer, it feeds the grass and provides insect and weed control. Fall fertilization helps maintain root systems and feed the lawn throughout the colder months.
Each lawn is different, which is why we don’t have a one-size-fits-all fertilization program. If you want to have the best care for your own lawn to keep it as healthy as possible, contact us at (601) 884-0327.
