Have you ever wondered why your lawn needs to be fertilized in order to grow and remain lush and dense? Many people bypass this important step and end up with a yard that looks drab and unhealthy.
Fertilizing is important because it feeds the lawn nutrients that make it grow faster. Your lawn needs fertilizer that has high nitrogen content to promote grass growth.
The frequency of lawn fertilization depends on soil type and almost every new home has poor, sterile soil that requires a minimum of 4 pounds of nitrogen per season to maintain the turf. A "new lawn" is any lawn less than 20 years established as it takes that long to build organic material that will allow the turf to utilize nutrients on it's own. Even then, fertilization is needed to maintain the required vigor to compete with weed pressure. The best weed control is thick, healthy turf and will greatly reduce the need for chemical herbicides.
Proper fertilization requires the right type, frequency and application, so rely on Tompkins Lawn Care to handle it for you.
