Fertilization

Fertilization

Fertilization is not a one-time application process. For best results, lawns need fertilization and nutrients all season long. We fertilize your lawn to supplement the natural bionutrients in the soil with balanced fertilizers, enriched with proper amounts of nutrients that are specifically formulated for the Kentuckiana seasonal and soil conditions.

We use a combination of liquid or granular fertilizers throughout the season to ensure we offer the best balance of nutrients at just the right time. The result? A well-fed lawn that when properly watered and mowed, will be picture perfect.

Fertilizers that We Use

While fertilizing lawns may look like a no-brainer to the untrained eyes, it is actually best left to experts with deep understanding of how lawn fertilization works. The biggest reason why such task should be handled by experts is that using the wrong fertilizers may do more harm than good – like failing to give your lawn proper nutrients and wasting money in the process.

At Ferti-Lawn of Kentucky, we have in-house personnel who are trained to determine the exact type of fertilizers that your lawn needs. Our people do this by carefully assessing your specific grass or turf, the condition of the soil, and other factors that affect lawn health. Only when our personnel have come up with a detailed assessment of your lawn do we begin applying the best fertilizers for your lawn.

Accordingly, the products that we normally use for our fertilization projects include:

Liquid Fertilizers

Technically speaking, liquid fertilizers are generally composed of three important macronutrients: nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorous. Some products may contain other macro and micronutrients, so their use will depend on the needs of the lawn. Here are some of the benefits that these nutrients provide:

  • Nitrogen. This nutrient helps keep lawns lush and healthy. When applied properly, liquid nitrogen fertilizer provides immediate effect.

  • Potassium. Potassium is known to strengthen turf’s root area, hence shielding the turf from damages caused by foot traffic and other diseases.

  • Phosphorous. This is another important nutrient needed by plants to strengthen their root system.

Granular Fertilizers

Fertilization

Granular fertilizers are commonly used for lawn fertilization. They are typically classified as either slow-release and quick release. The differences between the two are as follows:

  • Quick release. This type of granular fertilizer takes effect in a three- to four-week period and is thus ideal if you wish to give your lawn an immediate health boost.

  • Slow-release. Slow-release granular fertilizers are divided into sulfur-coated (works for up to 8 weeks) and polymer-coated (lasts up to 12 weeks) varieties. These are perfect if you want a gradual effect on your lawn.
