There are about a million and one things that come with being a new homeowner. From paying mortgages to fixing that leaky roof, and then looking outside and realizing your lawn is in shambles. Adulting is fun, right?! When it comes to making your home look like the most beautiful one on the block, we’ve got you covered! We’re a family-owned business, and our lawn care products are all made in the USA. 

Knowing Your Lawn 

Just like our bodies, our lawns need certain nutrients to stay healthy. Your lawn might have some nutrient deficiencies and need a little help thriving. The most common deficiencies you may see in your lawn are:

  •   nitrogen (N)
  •   potassium (K)
  •   phosphorus (P)

How can you tell what your lawn could be lacking? If you’ve noticed your grass is yellowing, it might have a nitrogen deficiency. This can also cause stunted or slow growth in the grass and low density. A potassium deficiency can make your lawn more sensitive to hot or cold temperatures and more prone to disease. Phosphorus deficiency might cause your grass to stop growing and take on a purplish tint.

Lawns have personalities, too! There are different types of grass, depending on where you live and the land on which builders created your home. Your grass type could be Bermuda, Zoysia, Kentucky bluegrass, St. Augustine, Centipede, Fescue, Florida Palmetto, or more. You want to keep your lawn maintenance specific to your type of grass.  

Our Must Have Lawn Care Items for New Homeowners

1. Lawn Food

The best way to keep your lawn in tip-top shape is by having high soil quality. Lawn food helps the soil reach its full potential. Each of our foods for lawn care has a different ratio of N, P, and K; the three numbers (e.g.16-4-8) commonly present on fertilizer labels. NPK is the ratio of "Elemental Nitrogen (N)", to Plant available phosphate

16-4-8 Complete Balanced NPK (32 ounce) (P), to water-soluble potash (K).

Energize Your Lawn with Turf Spray

Grass that has the right concentration of nitrogen will look lush and green, grow strong and fast, and appear thick and healthy. If your lawn is lacking nitrogen, it will be readily apparent to the naked eye. Nitrogen deficiencies cause the grass to appear discolored — such as yellow or orange, be smaller or stunted in growth, and each blade may have an unusual shape. Your lawn may also appear patchy or uneven.
