Lawn fertilization is crucial to maintaining a beautiful lawn for a long period. Grass needs every nutrient for excellent growth, just like any other plants. Sometimes, it might be impossible for grass to get all the nutrients they need through the soil – in this case, fertilizing will come quite handy. Lawn fertilization provides nutrients for the plants, which in turn improve the overall growth of the lawn. Aside from having a green and healthy lawn, the grass must have a high water absorption rate, be resistant to pests, have fewer weeds within its vicinity, and should be able to compete well in absorbing natural nutrients from the ground.
Lawn fertilization will help to achieve that beautiful lawn you have always wanted. Fertilization is crucial for the lawn to thrive quite well, and you can only get it right when you have a good knowledge about what your grass needs, and how frequently the nutrients should be supplied. Keep in mind that these demands will depend on the area where your lawn is located.
Applying fertilizer to your lawn may look easy, but an effective lawn fertilizing schedule comes with several difficulties. If applied in excess, your lawn would get burnt. When in insufficient amount, your lawn will be vulnerable to stunted growth and infestation by weeds. So, it is crucial to know how to balance the fertilizer use, if you want to have a healthy lawn. Annual fertilizer feeding during the fall is beneficial to most grasses for your lawn to thrive during the winter with adequate nutrients. Also, springtime is excellent for lawn fertilization.
One of the lawn care treatments is aeration – a technique which entails puncturing of soil to create small holes that allow the absorption of nutrients, water, and air from the soil into the roots of grass. This leaves the roots stronger and increases their penetrating ability, thus giving you a healthy lawn.
You have to aerate your land to reduce soil compaction. When your soil is too compact, it adversely affects the circulation of air, nutrients, and water within the soil. Compaction of soil can occur if too much solid particles are present within the soil space. Compacted soil has to be aerated routinely, so that the roots remain healthy and functional. The presence of too much debris or lawn thatches beneath the lawn will inhibit the absorption of necessary nutrients by the root.
The right time to aerate your lawn is during the grasses growing season. For cool-season grass, the optimal aeration time is in the early period of spring or fall while the right time for warm-season grass is during the late spring. The reason is that the grass will be able to grow and fill up any free space in the soil during these times. Perhaps you’ve realized that your lawn needs air, water and nutrients? Below are useful tips applicable when preparing for lawn aeration:
⦁ Make sure that the soil possesses sufficient moisture before doing lawn aeration. It is advisable to water your lawn a day before aeration or perform aeration the day after it rained.
⦁ Before lawn aeration, you should use marking flags to indicate the points of septic lines – or irrigation-sprinkler heads and other utilities placed in the soil.
Some lawns may require the addition of extra seed periodically. Sometimes just treating your yard might be all you need to take your lawn back to its picture perfect condition.
For lawns with bare patches or bald spots, you can call for the service of our technicians; they will first prepare your ground for seed application. The next is the lawn seeding procedure, and this will be done on the grassless areas of your lawn, so that they match the grassy areas. It is crucial to ensure that the soil and light conditions are suitable for the strains of grains that will be used.
