Healthy Lawns Begin with Lawn Fertilization & Treatment

Think about your lawn for a moment. It is the first thing that people see when they pull up near your home. They may even notice it before they see the home itself. Do you want them to see dirt patches, brown grass, and mud puddles? Most likely, your answer is, “No” if you love your lawn as much as most people. For that reason, you need to understand that healthy lawns begin with lawn fertilization and treatment.

Fertilizer is specifically designed to give your lawn the nutrients that it needs. It can help your grass become greener and help it to grow faster. It can also help you get rid of weeds and insects, both of which love dirt patches and other things. One single dirt patch will become a home for any number of weeds and they will end up growing faster than your grass if you are not careful. This means that it may also overtake your lawn and leave you with a green weed lawn instead of green and grassy.

Treating for insects and stuff is also a good choice. Ants can make dirt patches appear all over your lawn. They spread out quickly and before you know it; you could be staring at non-stop dirt. They are not the only type of bugs you will want to get rid of though. There are insects that feed on your lawn and if they are eating it; you will not be getting the chance to enjoy it.

Water and air are also important to the grass that you want to grow. Without water, nothing can survive, but your lawn needs only the right amount of water. Too much water will cause mud formation and this can lead to diseases, which may kill off the grass. Air is vital to your survival and the survival of all other things. Without it, grass cannot grow and thrive. Aeration is useful for waking up your lawn after a long winter’s nap. It is also good for heavy traffic areas around the exterior of your home, where people walking may pack the dirt. If you have a lot of dead grass and leaves, you will want to remove them as well since they can smother grass and make it impossible for the sun’s healing light to get to the soil.

Your lawn depends on you to keep it healthy. Without you, there would be more weeds than grass in most areas. The best thing you can do is fertilize and treat the problems that you see, and perhaps a few that you can’t.
