Generally, fertilizer is made up of three major nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Nitrogen makes grass and plants grow thick and green, while phosphorus stimulates root growth and development of seeds; potassium guards against disease and drought during the dry seasons.
Regular feedings are essential for your lawn. Water is important, but most types of grass and plants thrive off of that extra boost to keep them healthy. Using fertilizer on your grass and plants has many benefits including;
- Retaining nutrients
- Competing with weeds.
- Staying greener, longer and more affordable
- Keeping disease at bay
- Looking great for customers
- Reducing bare or brown patches
We recommend applying fertilizer quarterly(Jan, April, July, and Oct), but again, this will depend on each individual lawn and landscape.
