During the cold winter months, grass dries out and becomes dormant as part of a process called cell desiccation. Most grass plants survive this process and revive themselves in the spring, which is why grass returns to its green hue once temperatures warm.
Fertilization is an essential part of preparing your lawn for its long dormancy. Fertilizing your lawn in the fall (roughly September through November) is ideal—the air is cool, and the soil is warm enough to keep the roots active. Fertilization helps your lawn survive the winter, bounce back faster in spring, and ward off common lawn diseases.
Benefits of Lawn Fertilizer Services
Keep Soil and Grass Healthy
Fertilizing your lawn adds essential nutrients to the soil, such as nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. If applied properly, these nutrients help keep lawns green, promote root growth, and facilitate healthy soil that can easily withstand the elements.
Control and Prevent Pest Infestation
Struggling lawns are a breeding ground for bugs and insects. Professional fertilizer services use the best fertilizer available to prevent thin grass, standing water, and other common problems that attract pests and parasites.
Boost Curb Appeal
Applying high-quality fertilizer can help you grow and maintain a lush, green lawn. Professional lawn care specialists can analyze your lawn to determine which nutrients it lacks and apply fertilizer accordingly, keeping your lawn green and attractive, which boosts curb appeal and increase the market value of your home.
Save Time and Money with Professional Lawn Maintenance
To maximize the effectiveness of your lawn fertilizer, it needs to be applied at the right time—something that can change with respect to season, weather, temperature, and more. If you’re new to lawn care or are simply short on time, consider trusting a professional to find the best fertilization schedule for your yard. Lawn care professionals also help keep costs down by eliminating the need for homeowners to purchase and maintain costly lawn maintenance equipment.
