What Happens When Your Lawn Isn't Fertilized

If you want your lawn in Spokane, Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake, and other nearby areas in Washington to look full, lush, and green, there are a few things you’ll have to do to get it there.

One of the most important things you can do for your lawn is to establish a regular fertilization treatment to ensure it gets the nutrients it needs. Without fertilizer, your lawn will suffer. Here are some of the things that will happen to your lawn without a routine fertilizer application.

An important aspect of fertilization is that it makes your grass stronger. With that strength comes a greater ability to fight off common plant diseases such as red thread, Rhizoctonia, pine needle scale, and more.

In our area of Washington, we also have many common insects that affect the health of your lawn. These include white grubs, chinch bugs, cutworms, and others.

Lawn pests create destruction and damage to your grass and soil. There are a variety of pests that plague the areas of Spokane, Spokane Valley, and Liberty Lake that need to be treated for on a regular basis in order to maintain a healthy, green lawn.

Most insects are active during the growing season. Warmer weather from May through October sees an influx of pests in lawns and landscaping.

Prevention of Infestation is Key

Maintaining routine pest control and spider barriers before an infestation occurs is practical. Once pests start to invade your lawn, getting rid of them is a lot harder than keeping them off in the first place. The same goes for spiders making homes in your landscaping, or worse, in your home.

At Sure Green Lawn & Tree Service, we offer preventative insect treatments and spider barriers throughout the warm seasons. Insect treatments are maintained frequently throughout this time, while our spider barrier program contains four treatments spaced out over 6-8 week increments. Treating your lawn is important if you want to keep pests out of your yard.
