You’ve likely heard that adding fertilizer to your lawn can have many benefits, but does it really make that big of a difference? The simple answer is yes. Adding fertilizer into your lawn care routine will help strengthen your lawn and improve your soil. Plus, there isn’t much effort required. Here are some tips as to why you should fertilize your lawn from the team at Greenworks Lawn Care.
Lawn fertilization adds an assortment of nutrients to your grass and soil. Just like water and sunlight, grass also requires elements like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium to stay green and strong. Fertilizer will lead to a lush yard with a strong root system that will also help with the absorption of water during the rainy season. Not to mention a full, green yard can really increase your curb appeal; thus, the value of your home.
While it’s best to have a specific plan in place to combat weeds in your lawn, certain fertilizer formulas can help with that process as well. Look for fertilizers that provide the appropriate nutrients to your lawn while also packing a herbicide to stop those pesky weeds from spreading. Just make sure you apply the recommended amount and don’t overdo it.
Easy to Apply
The last reason to apply fertilizer is that it’s easy! Simply choose your fertilizer and an appropriate spreader, and start walking. Adding fertilizer into your lawn care routine will likely only add another 10 to 15 minutes for the average-sized lawn. Who could say no to that when the result is a beautiful, green, weed-free yard?
