Working hard to have a great lawn shows that you have pride in your home. Don’t let those hours spent in the heat working on your yard go to waste. Whether you're a lawn care expert or just getting started, there’s never a wrong time to learn more about lawn fertilizer.
Let’s Talk Liquid Fertilizer
Simple Lawn Solutions has various specialty fertilizers that focus on grass growth, lawn strength, and root development. With the right fertilizer and proper grass care techniques, you will be on your way to green and growing grass. Here are just three reasons why we love liquid fertilizer:
- Easy-to-use (no spreading equipment required)
- Well-mixed nutrients for uniform application
- Fast results (if there is a nutrient deficiency)
Our lawn food provides a balanced amount of the macronutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These nutrients are essential for grass health and vigor. Our liquid fertilizer is a homogeneous mixture, so there is an equal distribution of nutrients for your lawn during application. This fertilizer penetrates the ground, enabling the enhanced health of both your grass and soil.
Liquid fertilizer is safe for all grass types. Consider adding liquid fertilizer to your grass care routine and watch how quickly you see results!
When to Use Liquid Fertilizer
There are a few different factors to consider when deciding to fertilize your lawn, including climate and grass type.
First and foremost, a soil test should be conducted to help understand what your soil is already able to provide the plant. However, a general rule of thumb is that fertilization should take place twice a year, in spring and fall. At the minimum, you should fertilize your grass once a year. There are also visual ways to see if your lawn might benefit from increasing your fertilization frequency of liquid fertilizer:
- Thinning grass
- Chlorotic/yellow turf
- Weed persistence
Keeping a close eye on how your lawn is responding to your grass care routine can help you to mitigate any issues before they get worse.
The Best Time to Fertilize
Knowing the best time to fertilize your lawn starts with understanding the type of grass you have. For different warm-season and cool-season grass species, the best time for fertilization will vary.
Warm-season grass is best fertilized in June and then again in August. Depending on the health of your grass, you may also want to reapply fertilizer in September or spot treat areas that need a little extra care.
Cool-season grass fertilization should take place in May and then be reapplied in September, or around six weeks before the first frost.
When it comes to lawn care, timing is everything. Knowing more about your grass type will help you better understand the best time for fertilization and help you plan out your fertilization lawn care routine for the year.
