Grass Fertilizer

Importance Of Grass Fertilizer For A Healthy Looking Lawn

Grass fertilizer is important to help the lawn flourish since it provides essential nutrients. Grass uses the nutrients in the soil and when the nutrient level is depleted, the condition of the grass will deteriorate. Grass cannot move from one spot to another to get more nutrients and such a bit of help is needed every once in a while through the correct mixture of grass fertilizer.

The main components of grass fertilizer are that of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium. There are of course many other components, but when making a mixture, we look at the ratios of the three main elements. A soil test is conducted to assess the levels of each and the type of grass, drainage, and climate area are also assessed. Based on our assessment we make the perfect mixture to ensure that your lawn gets the correct amount of each in the soil.

With lawns, unlike the grass in forests, there is a limited amount of organic matter to feed from. The leaves are normally raked and as such very little organic matter is left behind for the grass. With poor soil, little organic matter and cutting, come the result of grass being starved. Fertilizer is the food that grass needs to grow. With regular application of the correct mixture of fertilizer, grass roots become strong; the grass becomes green, lush, thick and simply stunning. If you also add aeration of the soil, application of top soil, regular watering, correct mowing, and weed as well as pest control to the equation, you have the perfect formula for a stunning piece of lawn.
