Lawn Fertilization

Fertilizing

 

Yay! Spring time has arrived! It’s warm outside, the sun is shining and the grass is… brown. It doesn’t have to be that way for long. After a long winter of no nutrients your lawn is starving for a good meal.

A common misconception is that the lawn has enough nutrients to thrive without lawn fertilizer. The reason this is wrong, is that the soil in and around neighborhoods do not have a thriving population of microbes and insects to provide those nutrients and make them available to the grass.

Should I Fertilize The Lawn?

Absolutely! Not only is a lush, green lawn the dream of many homeowners! but the lawn, just like all other living things including yourself requires food and nutrients. Without lawn fertilizer your grass blades begin to lose color and become yellow appearing burnt, the grass begins to die in certain areas and doesn’t grow itself back, the lawn begins to thin and worst of all! You begin getting weeds & in no time the weeds on your lawn multiply. 

What are the best ways to prevent weeds?

  1. Fertilize your lawn 2 – 4 times a season
  2. Over-seed 1 time a season

If your looking for the easiest and best way to prevent and limit the amount of weeds your lawn gets. It starts with Overseeding with premium filtered grass seed either in the spring or in the fall. Followed by fertilizing with the right fertilizer.

What is the right fertilizer? 

The right fertilizer is dependent on your lawn and can change throughout a season. Our team is trained to understand what your lawn needs and when it needs it. We have a few blends of fertilizer we like to use. Our starter fertilizer is designed to develop better rooting systems and aid baby grass in its growing stages making it perfect paired with Overseeding or for lawns that are struggling to drain water and utilize it. We have a special blend of fertilizer that is macro and micro nutrient dense, coated to not burn your lawn, and with just the right amount of nitrogen & iron it is the best lawn fertilizer at preventing and fighting weeds. Fertilizing in the fall is also an amazing way to prevent weeds as it gives your lawn the fastest jumpstart in the spring, reducing the amount of weeds due to less soil exposure.

What Benefits Can I Expect From Fertilizer? 

  • Replacement of nutrients lost to bagging the grass clippings (more on this later)- healthier to mulch the grass!
  • Promotes the growth of new leafs and root growth
  • Helps the grass recover from foot traffic and pest damage
  • Controls and reduces the growth of weeds
 

What Do I Need To Do Before And After Fertilizing?

It will be crucial to water after the fertilizer application. Remember, you can eat all you want, but if your not getting enough water…  It’s the same with your lawn, you can give it lawn food, but you need to make sure your watering or your results wont be as effective.

You should also highly consider mulching the grass. This means, take the bag off, put your mulching kit on and cut like you normally do. If your mower does not have a mulching kit, than just take the bag off and cut. Why you might ask? It’s very simple, yet not something many homeowners consider. Plants biodegrade, and so when the grass is cut, you get clippings which can be left on the lawn. When done so, they will biodegrade and the nutrients that make up the plant will be broken down into chemicals to be used up by the living grass.

Lawn Fertilizer Packages:

Here at Unicutters we do things slightly different. We have an amazing all around fertilizer package, with an over-seeding application.
