A healthy lawn is sustained by water, sunlight, carbon dioxide, oxygen, and over a dozen different nutrients absorbed by roots from the soil. Fertilizer comes into the picture because nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, the primary nutrients, are usually needed in larger quantities than the soil can provide.
Before beginning a fertilization application program, we’ll test soil pH to determine whether an application of lime is warranted to raise the pH of your soil. Cool-season turfgrasses like Kentucky bluegrass, for example, prefer a pH between 6.5 and 7.2.
Applications are timed according to your lawn’s needs based on the season, and frequently we’ll include herbicides for broadleaf weed control and crabgrass control.
