MISSION, KS--(Marketwired - Mar 29, 2016) - (Family Features) A great looking lawn can play an important role in leading a happier, healthier life and can lead to enjoying more time outdoors while connecting with family and friends. And now is the perfect time to get your lawn in tip-top shape to host those warmer weather gatherings.
The first step to a beautiful yard is fertilizing, which plays a major role in helping your yard look its best year-round. By taking advantage of this advice from the lawn experts at TruGreen, you can achieve a healthy, green lawn you'll love.
Benefits of Lawn Fertilization
Your lawn needs nutrients provided by fertilization to prompt healthy growth. A well-fed lawn results in that desired vibrant green color; higher grass density; faster, healthier growth; lower ambient temperature; quicker recovery from pest and weed damage; and resistance to stress conditions, such as extreme weather and heavy traffic.
Choosing the Right Fertilizer
Fertilizing for your lawn's specific needs can keep it healthy in the face of weather conditions, climate and heavy usage. Use these tips to pick the best fertilizer for your lawn:
Setting a Fertilization Schedule
Striking the proper fertilizer balance is essential for lawn health. Too much can leave fertilizer burn and too little can leave your yard prone to weed problems and thin growth, so be sure to follow the directions on the bag. Or consider signing up for a lawn plan, through a company such as TruGreen, which offers a free Healthy Lawn Analysis, where an expert will create a plan - including a lawn fertilizer schedule - tailored to help your yard reach its fullest potential.
