If you’re a homeowner, finding the balance between over-and under-watering, the correct type and amount of fertilizer, and keeping pesky vermin at bay can seem like a full-time job. If you’ve noticed your lawn is lacking in appearance, there are specialized products designed to target problem areas and make your lawn the envy of the neighborhood.
One of the more common issues we see with problem grasses is deficiencies in certain minerals and nutrients, including phosphorus and potassium. They also help to promote root growth and enhance a plant’s resilience early in its lifecycle. This supplement is best used when a plant is first taking root but is also essential as the plant continues to grow. Phosphorus helps by strengthening the grass roots. When roots are stronger, they are more easily able to absorb nutrients, making the grass grow faster, look greener, and grow thicker.
Another element necessary for healthy lawn growth is potassium. This nutrient helps promote a healthy yard and keep diseases away. Potassium is naturally found in soil, so it’s essential to test for its concentration before potentially over-fertilizing. Potassium helps plants by allowing more efficient use of nitrogen, another nutrient critical for grass growth. It also helps increase your grass’ tolerance for drought, cold, and diseases.
It sounds like a lot, right? Lucky for you, Simple Lawn Solutions carries a variety of products that can change your brown, wilted grass into something you can be proud of.
