Landscape Fertilization

Fertilization

Fertilize your landscape properly, and you’ll be on your way to a healthy, dense stand of turf that maintains a deep green color and gives weeds a run for their money. Nitrogen is every lawn’s most important ingredient, and each type of grass demands different amounts to display peak growth and performance. How often you fertilize affects not only the appearance, but also maintenance level. The more you fertilize, the more it will grow!

Fertilizer and Water

A day or two before applying fertilizer, water your landscape thoroughly. After grass dries, apply fertilizer. Then lightly water again. This second watering is vitally important, because it washes fertilizer off grass blades and into soil. You can also time fertilizer application between rainfalls to let rain wash fertilizer into soil. Just be sure you don’t fertilize before a downpour, or you may wind up with fertilizer washing away, especially if your landscape slopes. Avoid applying fertilizer during a drought when a lawn has browned or withered from lack of moisture.
