Proper Fertilization Practices

Why Should I Fertilize?
The most important thing you can do for a lawn is to provide it with proper nutrition. Fertilizing is the cheapest and easiest way to make a big impact on your lawn. Without fertilizer, most turf-grasses will struggle to maintain their vigor and color. Fertilizing increases growth, color, vigor, hardiness, thickens the grass and is the mainstay of having a rich dark lawn. If you opt to feed your lawn only 1 to 2 times a year, you’re starving your lawn. A steady, regular diet is required. While fertilizing alone will not provide for a perfect lawn, it is one the most important parts of lawn care.
What is Fertilizer?
Fertilizer has three main elements: Nitrogen, Phosphate and Potash. Each element has a particular purpose as to what it does to a grass plant. 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. A balanced fertilizing program for your lawn will include all three main elements along with some of the micro-nutrients also needed by the grass. Micro-nutrients are minerals like Iron, Manganese, Zinc, Boron and Sulfur.
The properly applied fertilizer program will help grass grow strong, stay green, support in seedling development, aid in root growth, and will help the overall cell structure of grass by making it more resistant to disease and physical damage due to heavy foot traffic.
