If you want your lawn to be verdant and lush this year, then you will need to apply a treatment of spring fertilizer. Fertilizer supplies key nutrients to your grass and the soil that they otherwise wouldn't get.
Here's why you need to apply spring fertilization in Spokane Valley, Spokane, Liberty Lake, and the nearby areas of Washington State.
Fertilizer provides important nutrients to your grass.
Once your grass is no longer dormant from the winter, it will begin to grow as it absorbs light, water, and air. If it is growing without the nutrients received from an initial spring fertilizer treatment, then it will not be as strong.
In early spring, it's best to administer a quick-release, nitrogen-based fertilizer. Nitrogen is what makes your grass green as it is a huge component of chlorophyll. While it is in the air around us, your grass cannot use it until it has been absorbed into the soil.
While nitrogen is vital, there is a reason they say "too much of a good thing." Too much nitrogen can cause burns in the grass. On the reverse side, if there is not enough nitrogen, the grass blades will turn yellow.
Our lawn care professionals will create a custom-blended fertilizer that is specific to your property, so rest assured that we will apply the amount of nitrogen your lawn needs.
A fertilization treatment also nourishes your soil.
Those nutrients will work their way down into the soil, where the materials will then be absorbed by your grass and plants. Nutrient-rich soil is the ideal environment for your lawn and landscaping to grow. When the soil is deprived of essintial nutrients, then your plants and grass will have weak overall structures and will be more susceptible to plant disease or insect infestations.
When the soil regularly supplies nutrients to the plants and grass, then they are able to continually strengthen themselves and their root structures.
Our fertilization treatments are organic or custom-blended.
Depending on your preferences for your lawn, you can choose to apply organic or custom-blended fertilizer for all of the following applications. Our organic options are composed of dehydrated poultry waste, which has many valuable nutrients, while the custom-blended is created with nitrogen, urea, ammonium sulfates, and potassium sulfates.
Once your lawn has gotten the initial dose of nitrogen-rich fertilizer, then the nutrients throughout the rest of the year will help to fortify the grass.
You can work with our lawn care professionals to determine whether organic or custom-blended fertilizer is the best for your property.
