Why Fertilize Your Lawn?
To keep your lawn green, growing, and looking its best, a consistent program of fertilization is essential. Regular fertilization will lead to a thicker, healthier lawn, that can assist in erosion reduction, filter pollutants provide natural colling, and cleans the air. Plus, your lawn will be less likely to suffer from weed, insect, and disease problems when it’s fertilized regularly. And perhaps best of all, your lawn will need less water when it gets is nutrients it needs throughout the year.
What’s in fertilizer, anyway?
Fertilizer contains three primary (and many secondary) nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Nitrogen promotes strong color and top growth, phosphorus stimulates root development, and potassium helps with disease resistance and water retention. For the best results, your lawn should be given these nutrients in evenly spaced treatments throughout the year.
How do lawns use fertilizer?
After fertilizer becomes mixed with the moisture in the soil, it’s absorbed by the plants through hair-like feeder roots. Once inside the plant, nutrients are distributed to the areas where they’re needed and can go to work building new roots, promoting fuller leaf growth, warding off diseases, and helping the grass hold water throughout the seasons.
