Fertilizing Lawn

Fertilizing Lawn Tips

We offer specialized fertilizing lawn services in Gauteng to residential home tenants. As part of our comprehensive lawn maintenance and care services, we also offer advice to help clients understand the products and services we offer. As such a few tips for fertilizing lawn areas are shared below.


Elements of Fertilizers
Not all fertilizers are the same. There are three main elements in fertilizers namely Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. The ratio of the three elements is normally indicated on the bags. Some fertilizers may not have all the elements and are suitable for specific treatments. We provide a unique mixture that contains just the right quantities in relation to each other and certain micro-nutrients. The mixture is determined once we have assessed the specific soil, moisture content, grass type, and seasons. Understanding the role of each of the main elements in fertilizing lawn mixtures is our job. We share a bit of information about the respective roles of the elements below.


Nitrogen
It is the most important element required for a healthy lawn as it ensures the green colour and helps to make the grass thicker and sturdy. It promotes strong growth that helps to fight weed and pest intrusions.


Phosphorus
It is included in the mixture to promote strong undergrowth of the roots to help ensure well established lawns.


Potassium
The element helps to improve disease resistance in grass. It also helps the grass to survive during dry periods and cool winter weather.


It is not too say that you will always use the same mixture. The soil beneath your lawn may already contain enough potassium or phosphorus. Before adding more, it is necessary to do a soil PH check and to assess the current nutrient level in the lawn. We can do the assessment and based on our findings provide the best possible fertilizing lawn mixture for the particular period. In addition we provide a fertilizing maintenance service at 13 week intervals to ensure that the grass stays in excellent condition.
