About Plant Fertilization

Slide 4:

Fertilizing is an important step in maintaining the health of our plants and for keeping invasive plants at bay. In order to grow and thrive, plants need essential nutrients typically found in the soil. But sometimes our soils are depleted—whether due to neighboring plants, poor soil quality, or other factors—and are therefore unable to provide plants the nourishment they need. Fertilizers can fill this void. Comprised of varying proportions of the macro nutrients nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus, as well as other secondary and micro nutrients, they can properly feed your plants to ensure their vitality and survival .

Slide 5:

The Key Benefits A fertilization program led by a landscape professional takes the guesswork out of determining how and when to treat your plants. The knowledge and experience that they bring to the table will help avoid common problems such as burned foliage or ineffective applications. With so many types to choose from, fertilizing is often best left to a professional who can determine not only the right nutrients for your plants, but other critical factors such as application rates, the ideal season and weather in which to fertilize, and in what form to apply them.

Keeping up with your lawn can be challenging, especially as the seasons change. While maintenance requirementsmay lighten during the cooler months, there is still plenty to do year round to keep your yard looking its best. Therefore, it is crucial that homeowners understand their property’s landscaping needs, from watering to mowing. Here are just a few tips to help you maintain a beautiful lawn throughout the seasons:

Slide 7:

Tip #1. Fertilize at least three times per year Your lawn requires regular fertilization at least three times a year to ensure vigorous growth that can combat weeds. Consult with your lawn care specialist or local hardware store to determine the right type of fertilizer for your lawn, as well as the best way to use it.

Tip #2. Water the right way Watering isn’t as straightforward as one may believe.It is easy to over water your lawn if you don’t understand what’s ailing it, or it can quickly dry it out if you fail to maintain a watering schedule. A good rule to follow is to water your lawn three to five times a week during the hot and dry seasons and then water according to rainfall during the winter months. Pay attention to zones, as well. Be sure to water each area for no more than twelve minutes if you have a rotating water system, and less time with manual watering.

Tip #3. Consider Edging to Improve Landscaping Edging is the only way to maintain an effective separation between your bed areas and your turf. A gas powered edger is best, but a weed eater held vertically can help achieve the same effect.
