Prepare for Spring with Our Lawn Fertilization Program

Your grass is the pride and joy of your landscape. The key to keeping it healthy is to make sure it is getting the proper nutrients. Many people know that it’s important to fertilize your lawn but they don’t know the why, how, or when. Every yard is different which means that just any generic fertilizer isn’t going to work. Fertilizing is a science and in order to achieve the best results from your fertilizers you need to know what is going on inside your soil.

What’s In Your Soil?

A healthy lawn depends on healthy soil. Your grass and other plants draw the nutrients they need from the soil. When soil nutrients are out of balance it can affect the way your grass grows and the effectiveness of fertilizers. Over time, the nutrients in the soil are used up and are not replaced. This can cause your grass to look weak and unhealthy. Using the proper fertilizer can help replenishhands in soil NPK important nutrients in your soil giving your grass a healthy base.
