Things You Should Know About Lawn Fertilizers

For anyone wanting a healthy, lush, green lawn it’s essential to apply fertilizers. Lawns like this don’t just magically appear. A lawn is a living, breathing thing that needs nutrients and care. It’s important to know what type of fertilizer to use, how much of it to apply and when to apply it. It varies based on need. Are you trying to kill weeds, insects, or control disease? Read on for some valuable answers that will help to give you a lush and healthy lawn.

Purchasing wholesale lawn fertilizersFertilizer is a combination of at least three nutrients – nitrogen, phosphate and potassium. These are the primary nutrients that your lawn requires to stay healthy. You’ll see these nutrients listed as numbers on your fertilizer bag. For instance 20-5-10 will be 20% nitrogen, 5% phosphate and 10% potassium. This is an appropriate mixture to apply in the spring.

Using a slow release fertilizer on your lawn will buy you some time before having to reapply it. With slow release fertilizers you apply them every six to eight weeks unlike regular fertilizer which should be reapplied every four weeks.

You should plan on applying fertilizer in 5 applications. The first feeding is in the spring when the soil temperature reaches 55 degrees and the grass begins to grow. The second application will occur four weeks later and then every six to eight weeks until winter. Many people believe the most important application of all is done in the fall while the roots are still growing. This is the final application that will carry the turf through the winter months.

Some granules require sprinkling the lawn prior to application and some afterwards. Liquid fertilizers don’t require water at all.

To know how much fertilizer to apply, read the bag or container. You’ll need to know the size of the area you’re planning on fertilizing, then adjust the setting on your spreader to whatever the bag recommends.
