Lawn Fertilization Delaware, Ohio
There are many beautiful homes in Delaware, Ohio with large lawns. Having a nice yard requires work. Fertilization is a key part to lawn maintenance. Earth Art & Landscape employs professional lawn care specialists who are licensed to apply fertilizer to your turf and landscape. Even though you might be tempted to do it by yourself, fertilizing is not a job for the weekend warrior. The best results come from professional application.
Delaware, Ohio Lawn Fertilization Program
If your lawn is struggling, you need to consider a fertilizing plan. How often do you treat your lawn? Once a year? Every other year? You might be surprised to learn that this is not nearly enough. Your lawn requires consistent upkeep and fertilization.
Our fertilizer program features multiple applications per year. We will put together a customized program that best fits your landscaping. Just like cutting your grass is a chore that must be done regularly, fertilizer needs to be applied consistently.
After committing to a fertilization program, you’ll begin to notice the benefits. These effects will be especially noticeable if you haven’t been fertilizing regularly in years past. Fertilization means you won’t need to water your lawn as much. Weeds, insects and pests will have to take up residence in another lawn because fertilization protects your lawn from these troubles. In the long run, you’ll save money by investing on fertilization. Fertilization is also environmentally responsible.
Lawn Fertilization Benefits
- A well-maintained lawn and landscape significantly increases your property value and can build a strong source of community pride.
- Properly fertilized lawns better tolerate stresses such as heat, drought, and cold.
- Healthy lawns provide aesthetic, recreational and environmental benefits.
Having the best-looking lawn in the neighborhood is a reasonable goal to achieve with fertilization. Fertilization maintains density and plant vigor, enhances green color and encourages growth and recovery from damage and seasonal stresses (such as hot, dry periods.) Applying the right fertilizer at the right time helps plants accumulate and store the essential plant foods used for growth and development.
There are several other benefits to regular lawn fertilization. Fertilized lawns require fewer pesticides to manage weeds, diseases and insects. For the green-friendly crowd, fertilized lawns help protect water quality by reducing water runoff and potential soil issues.
Additional Lawn Treatments Include:
- Specific disease control
- Pest and insect treatment
- Core aeration
- Soil testing
Unfertilized lawns are easy to spot. They have thin, dying grass with weeds. Over time, an unfertilized lawn will lose whatever density it has. When grass density goes away, undesirables like crabgrass, clovers and dandelions take up residence. To make matters worse, malnourished turf grasses are also more likely to be damaged by diseases and insects.
Delaware, Ohio Tree & Shrub Fertilization Program
Fertilization isn’t just for your lawn. Your trees and shrubs also need care to look their best. These are important parts of your landscape. Our tree and shrub fertilization program, like our lawn fertilization program, consists of multiple applications per year. We will work with you to create a custom program based on your needs.
Why is it important to use fertilization for your plants? When trees and shrubs don’t grow in the wild, they lose access to a natural environment that provides nutrients. It is necessary to supplement naturally-occurring, essential mineral elements in the soil to maintain an optimum supply of these minerals for growth.
Nutrient Deficiency in Trees and Shrubs
Your trees and shrubs are likely not in their natural environments. Many trees and shrubs in foreign locations show signs of nutrient deficiency. This is not the case for plants growing in their natural habitats. Wild plants are usually only growing where there is a natural recycling of nutrients and where they have adapted or have a competitive advantage.
Nursery, street tree and landscape plantings are, for the most part, artificial habitats. Soils may be vastly different from those of the native habitat of a given plant, and nutrient recycling systems may be altered or diminished as a result of planting schemes (planting in turf areas) or maintenance practices (collection of fallen leaves.)
Additional Tree & Shrub Treatments Include:
- Deep Root Feeding
- Tree Injections
- Supplement Treatments
