Customizing The Application

Not all applications of fertilizer should be the same. The temperature and amount of rainfall help to determine when is the best time to apply fertilizer. There is also a greater need to fertilize when the grass is at the peak of its growing season. The faster the grass grows, the more nutrients it needs. A soil test will show exactly how much nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium should be applied.

Trees

Usually trees and shrubs will get most of the nutrients they need from the fertilizer that is put on the lawn. Yet, this means that the lawn will be losing some of the nutrients that it needs to grow and be healthy. Fertilizing trees and shrubs ensures that both they and the lawn get all the nutrients that are required.

Trees and shrubs planted next to drive-ways or sidewalks naturally can’t get any nutrients through the concrete or asphalt. This can give rise to deficiencies that will be compensated for by fertilizing.
