Fertilization Tips

Without fertilizer your lawn will struggle to maintain growth and color. Fertilizing increases growth, color, vigor, hardiness, thickens the grass and is the mainstay of having a rich dark lawn.

Fertilizer has three main elements. Nitrogen, (the first number) Phosphate, (the middle number) and Potash (the last number). Each element has a particular purpose as to what it does to a grass plant. Your lawn needs all of the elements but in correct amounts. Nitrogen is the most used of the elements. It produces fast growth, dark color and helps thicken the grass. But a Fertilizer that is high in Nitrogen and low in Phosphate and Potash will create too much top growth and not enough root growth or energy storage for recovery.

Fertilize with the lawn aeration pros

A balanced fertilizing program for your lawn will include all three main elements.  The level of maintenance you want to give your lawn will determine your fertilizing schedule. Some people will only fertilize in the fall, some fall and spring, and others follow a strict 4 or 6 application schedule for each year. The time to start Fertilizing is 30 days prior to the start of the growing season. . In our area that is the beginning of March to the beginning of April.  A four application program will be spread out approximately 60 days apart through the growing season
