Summer’s arrival brings along drought periods and heat! As much as we love this change, our lawns, on the other hand, deal with great stress when it comes to these extreme temperatures… It is important to take good care of it!
Know that ground fertilization is a crucial step in the upkeep of your green spaces. Oh yes! A well-nourished lawn will be nicer, more comfortable under your feet, and most importantly: in better health. Our experts share 5 good reasons to fertilize your lawn in the spring.
1. Lawn fertilization compensates for the deficiencies in soil
Soil composition can vary from one area to another. Same goes for the amounts of nutrients it contains. To grow, your lawn absorbs the nutrients in the soil. With time, the soil loses its richness and provides less nutritional elements to your lawn. Applying good fertilizer, in appropriate quantities, allows deficiencies to be taken care of and having a more durable and healthier lawn!
2. An adequately fertilized lawn will be more resistant to diseases
Potassium and nitrogen are part of essential elements for the growth of your lawn. Potassium, if present in good quantities in a well fertilized soil, makes the grass more resistant to diseases. Nitrogen gives the dark green color to your lawn, increases its density, and stimulates growth. In conclusion, it makes your lawn stronger! To be certain you’re applying the appropriate fertilizer, our experts offer different personalized treatment plans, because every lawn is unique and has its different needs!
3. Fertilizing your lawn reduces the risks of weed invasions
A good lawn fertilization makes it denser, strong, and healthy, therefore leaving less space for weeds to develop. By taking care of offering the right nutriments to your lawn, it will see a better growth and will resist invasions of dandelions, crabgrasses, oxalis, and other unwanted weeds.
4. Fertilizing increases your lawn’s tolerances to droughts and heat
Good fertilization allows your lawn to grow a strong and deep root system, which allows it to access water and nutrients in soil faster. A lawn that is well irrigated and healthy generally adapts to extreme temperatures better.
5. Fertilization reduces messes caused by harmful insects
As mentioned above, a well fertilized lawn is often denser and in better health, which allows it to support the presence of certain parasites without any major inconveniences. You’ll then also be able to quickly and easily detect damages that could be caused by insects, and act accordingly. On top of that, a well-nourished lawn recovers a lot better from those damages!
