Commercial lawn care companies like Landworks know that a lawn fertilizer service plan is a crucial part of a comprehensive turf care program. A well-fertilized lawn is healthier and greener, and it is far better at preventing weed infestation, disease, and drought. A fertilization and weed control program along with proper mowing and correct watering practices will keep your grass beautiful and healthy.
Why Does Turf Require Fertilization?
A lush, green lawn is a prized addition to a landscape and proper fertilization helps maintain this attractive, living carpet. While grass needs at least 18 elements for proper growth, most of these elements are sufficiently supplied through natural soil processes and are readily available for plant uptake unless soil conditions are improper.
The three primary macronutrients — nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium — are exceptions, however. Grasses require these nutrients in greater quantities than is usually available in the soil. Commercial lawn care services apply fertilizers containing these critical nutrients to a lawn to promote healthy grass growth.
As with the growth and health of people and animals, both your lawn and landscape need regular, healthy nourishment to maintain vigor, fight off sickness, and discourage pests. Although the feeding cycles are different between people and plants, it’s just as true that depriving your valuable landscape plants of proper nourishment when they need it the most will lead to much poorer performance and possibly higher maintenance costs in the long run.
