Custom Lawn Fertilization Program

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all fertilizer. Different grasses have different requirements and nutrient needs. For instance, Bermuda grass needs 6 to 8 lbs. of nitrogen while Zoysia grass only needs 2 to 3 lbs. Centipede and Buffalo grass will require at least a pound while the St. Augustine grass needs 4 to 5 lbs. of nitrogen. The time of the year also plays an important role in the amount of fertilizer that will be applied to your lawn. March to April will need at least 0.5 lbs. of nitrogen while June to July will usually be time for organic fertilizer application. Soil quality and topography of the area are also considered when creating a lawn fertilization program.

Efficient Fertilizer Application

Timing is very important when applying fertilizers on your lawn. During spring, the soil has to be tested to determine its correct pH level. A pH-balanced soil will need potassium and phosphorus. In summer, you may use organic fertilizers and pest control solutions to target some bugs. If you want an efficient lawn fertilization program, make sure that it is performed by lawn maintenance experts.

Organic vs. Synthetic Fertilizers

Most people favor the use of organic fertilizers. This type of fertilizer provides nutrients to the soil, improves its structure, and increases its ability to hold nutrients and water. The organic type prevents over-fertilizing because it slowly releases nutrients to the soil. Meanwhile, synthetic fertilizers can be released to the soil almost immediately, making soil improvement possible within a few days. It’s also easier to apply the exact amount of nutrients that your plant and soil need.

At Edwards & Sons Irrigation, LLC, we use only the most appropriate and best type of fertilizers on your lawn. Our lawn fertilization program is usually a combination of organic and synthetic fertilizers, so we will determine which type will suit the needs of your lawn.
