Lawn Fertilization

Lawn Fertilization in Springfield, MA

Just like humans, grass also needs food and treatments here or there to grow vibrant and healthy. When you add nutrients to the soil, it will nourish the grass. Naturally, the soil can grow and care for the grass on its own. However, when mowing the lawn, the grass will grow back needing even more nutrients. You can easily enrich plants with a handheld spray bottle fertilizer, but it is not practical for a large plot of land. We offer a variety of ways to distribute fertilizer as well as types of fertilizer to use. When you give us a call, we can help run through the options of how you want to grow your lawn!

Fertilizer Spreaders Options:

  • Broadcast or rotary spreader: Used for big lawns that need a wide distribution of fertilizer. 
  • Drop spreader: Perfect for controlled fertilizer distribution. It costs more than other spreaders but does an amazing job of covering a typical suburban lawn. 
  • Handheld broadcast spreader: This method works well for smaller sized lawns. You walk around and rotate the sides to scatter the fertilizer.
  • Handheld battery-operated spreader: This is great for small yards or areas that are more difficult to fertilize with a normal spreader.

Types Of Fertilizer

Within all the intimidating bags of fertilizer, you see in the garden section, they all have the same elements: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. Nitrogen promotes the bright green color of grass through boosting the production of chlorophyll in photosynthesis. Phosphorus promotes growth in roots and stems. Lastly, potassium gives your lawn resistance to drought and diseases. All 3 combine is the perfect combo for the healthiest plants.

Our company focuses on the best quality of fertilizer for your grass and plants.

We use fertilizers with the most percentage of nitrogen as it does the most in promoting healthy grass. However, with every lawn job, we treat it on a case to case basis. Our team uses products that benefit specifically to its needs. As we mentioned before, grasscycling is a good trick that we enjoy recommending to our clients as it gives a boost of nitrogen without the high expense.
