An important piece of having a healthy, vitalized yard is fertilization. Earth Art & Landscape is the premier provider of fertilization services for the Grove City, Ohio area.

Grove City, Ohio Lawn Fertilization Program
There’s nothing worse than a lawn that isn’t healthy. Most, if not all, lawn woes can be solved with fertilization. How often do you treat your lawn? Once a year? Every other year? Never have? You might surprised to learn that your lawn, in order to look its best, requires fertilizer applications several times per year.
Our fertilizer program complies with that guideline and we will apply the fertilizer multiple times per year. We can put together a custom program that best fits your landscape. Just like cutting your grass is a chore that must be done regularly, fertilizer needs to be applied constantly.
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. Benefits of fertilization include:
- Less watering: a well-fertilized lawn doesn’t need to be watered as much, saving you time.
- Fewer weeds: weeds will try to grow anywhere, but will find it particularly difficult to grow in a fertilized lawn
- Fewer insects & pests: just like weeds, insects and pests will try to take up residence in all lawns, but it will be much tougher to do so in a fertilized lawn.
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.
If you want to have the best-looking lawn in the neighborhood, one of the best things you can do to achieve this goal is regular fertilization. Why? Fertilization is like vitamins and food for your turf. Fertilizer maintains lawn density and plant vigor, enhances green color and encourages growth and recovery from damage and seasonal stresses (such as a hot, dry times.) The right fertilizer formula at the right time helps plants accumulate and store the essential plant foods used for growth and development.
What else comes from 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
It’s not tough to spot an unfertilized lawn. It’s probably yellowing, thin and dying. Weeds will be sprouting all over the grass. Whatever density might exist with the turf will go away over time. Once that density is gone, things like crabgrass, dandelions and clovers will grow, making the lawn unappealing. Making matters worse, malnourished turf grasses are also more likely to be damaged by diseases and insects.
Grove City, Ohio Tree & Shrub Fertilization Program
Fertilization isn’t only for your lawn. It can also be used on your trees and shrubs to ensure they look their best. Don’t underestimate the importance of your trees and shrubs to your entire landscape. Our tree and shrub fertilization program, like our lawn fertilization program, consists of multiple applications per year. We can create a custom program based on your needs.
Your plants need fertilization for similar reasons as your lawn. Without the proper nutrients and “food,” they won’t be as healthy as they should be. 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
Think about where you’ve planted your trees and shrubs. More than likely, they are 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. In foreign environments, extra care is needed to maximize plant health.
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
