Why Should You Fertilize?

The dream of many home dwellers and commercial property owners is a thick, green, grassy lawn. Like all other living things, your lawn needs the right food to grow and prosper. Fertilizer services from All Green Pest Control and Lawn Care supply essential nutrients to your lawn like phosphorous, nitrogen, and potassium that are not available naturally.

Benefits of fertilization programs from All Green include:

  • Promotes Leaf and Root Growth;
  • Weed Control;
  • Pest Control and Resistance;
  • Replaces Lost Nutrients;
  • Recovery from Foot Traffic, Pest Damage;
  • Soil Protection.

Types of Lawn Fertilizer

Your lawn needs to be fed suitable types and forms of fertilizer at the right times of the year to maximize growth potential. Each lawn requires varying fertilizer applications that depend on the kinds of grass and the time of year. All Green Pest Control and Lawn Care specialists have the training, knowledge, and experience to determine the best fertilizing options for your lawn for each season.

Once we determine your lawn care needs, we can help you choose which fertilizer type is the best fit for your circumstances from the following options.

Time-Release Fertilizer

Too much nitrogen applied to your lawn at one time can cause excessive top-growth and damage the soil underneath. Time-release fertilizer delays the availability of nitrogen over an extended period, ensuring your lawn sustains its color and fullness for weeks after each treatment.

Gradual-Release Fertilizer

Gradual-release fertilizer promotes steady growth by allowing plant roots to harvest essential nutrients as needed. Releasing nutrients slowly reduces the chances of causing harm to the grass, the soil beneath, and surrounding ecosystems.

Granular Fertilizer

Granular fertilizers come in small pellets that are ground or watered into the soil of your lawn. Granular fertilizers are ideal for fertilizing large lawns and grassy areas. This type of fertilizer comes in slow-release, controlled-release, and quick-release formulas depending on your specific lawn care needs.

Liquid Lawn Fertilizer

Applying liquid lawn fertilizer at the correct times throughout the year builds up stronger grass for a fuller, greener lawn. Plants absorb liquid fertilizer quickly through the leaves and down to the roots to ensure all areas of your lawn grow fully and evenly.

When To Fertilize Your Lawn

Every fertilizer treatment from the respected professionals at All Green Pest Control and Lawn Care targets your lawn care areas in varying ways. Skilled technicians work to create the best fertilizer schedule for your commercial or residential lawn.

Winter

Winterizing treatment is the most important fertilizer application to ensure the long-term health and development of your lawn. Proper root development as grass blades become dormant helps to see a greener, healthier, and thicker lawn in the following spring.

Spring

Providing your lawn with nitrogen treatments in early spring and late fall provides plants with chlorophyll that promotes leaf growth, strong roots, dark green foliage, and increased seed and fruit production. To help prevent new weeds from developing, a pre­emergent is added to regular fertilizer to treat existing weeds from the previous year and prevent new ones from forming.

Summer

Multiple summer fertilizer treatments encourage new growth and keep your lawn green throughout the warmer months. Weeds that take root are treated during a post-emergent service to maintain color, strength, and growth until the temperature cools off.

Fall

Lawns need help recovering from the summer months and preparing for the upcoming dormant winter. Fall fertilizer is applied to stimulate root growth and cell wall strength before winter approaches. As the temperature begins to drop late into the fall, each treatment focuses more on root growth and development before the ground freezes.

Proper Watering Is Essential For Lawn Care

As All Green Pest Control and Lawn Care works to keep your residential or commercial lawn healthy and looking its best, you need to do your part by watering the grass with the proper amounts and frequency. Some lawns need watering daily, while others are better off waiting for a day or two between watering sessions.

How often and how much water should be used when watering your lawn depends on several factors, including:

  • Type of Soil;
  • Altitude of the Property;
  • Slope of the Ground;
  • Temperature and Humidity Trends.

Hotter periods typically require more frequent watering, though sprinklers should be run at the coolest parts of the day, such as early in the morning or late at night. An All Green Pest Control and Lawn Care representative can advise you on the best practices for watering your lawn.
