Plain City, Ohio Lawn Fertilization Program
For many people, home ownership is the pinnacle of the American Dream. However, home ownership comes with a lot of responsibility! You need to keep up with the landscaping. Unfertilized lawns are unhealthy, undesirable and uncool. What happens when your lawn is unfertilized? Things like weeds, crabgrass and other undesirables grow. Most, if not all, lawn problems can be solved with a lawn fertilization program.
Do you know how often your lawn needs to be fertilized? Once a year? Nope! Most people aren’t aware that fertilization is an ongoing process requiring several treatments per year to get your turf looking its best. The exact number of treatments, of course, depends on your landscape.
Our fertilization program includes multiple applications per year. Depending on your landscape features, we will create a customized plan to get you the best results. Just like cutting your grass is a task that needs to be done regularly, fertilizer needs to be applied constantly.
You’ll quickly begin to notice the benefits of committing to a fertilization program. You’ll especially notice if you haven’t regularly fertilized before. 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. As an added bonus, fertilization is also environmentally responsible. You’ll have an impressive lawn and an environmentally friendly one! That’s a great combination.
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 a rich, green and thick lawn, fertilization is not an option. You won’t be able to achieve these results without it. Fertilization is like refueling your body after a workout. Your body needs nutrients to grow and change. The same goes for your lawn. Without these nutrients, it will be starved and look weak.
What exactly does fertilizer do? Many things. Fertilizer maintains lawn density and plant vigor, enhances the green color and encourages growth and recovery. Growth and recovery is essential when dealing with seasonal stresses, such as heat and drought. The right fertilizer (they’re not all the same!) at the right time helps plants accumulate and store the essential plant foods used for growth and development.
There are many other benefits to lawn fertilization besides the obvious improvement in lawn quality. First, fertilized lawns require fewer pesticides to manage weeds, diseases and insects. If you’re a proponent of environmental friendliness, fertilized lawns can help protect the water by reducing runoff and potential soil problems.
Additional Lawn Treatments Include:
- Specific disease control
- Soil testing
- Pest and insect treatment
- Core aeration
You might not know all the negative parts about unfertilized lawns. This goes beyond their ugly appearances: dry, thin, yellow and inhabited with weeds. Unfertilized lawns have a “Welcome” mat out for dandelions, clovers and crabgrass. Additionally, malnourished turf grasses are more likely to be damaged by diseases and insects.
Plain City, Ohio Tree & Shrub Fertilization Program
It’s important to keep in mind that fertilization is important for all parts of your landscape. This includes your trees, shrubs and plants. Without the nutrients fertilization provides, your plants will look dull. Before you think you can get away without fertilizing your trees and shrubs, think about their importance to your overall landscape. Even with a well-manicured yard, trees and shrubs make a huge difference. The greenest grass in the world would look strange without being surrounded by plants.
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.
Just like your lawn, your plants need the food and nutrients fertilization provides. Without these things, your plants will be a shell of what they could be. It is important to supplement naturally-occurring, essential mineral elements in the soil to maintain an optimum supply of these minerals for growth. Fertilization is the protein bar for your plants.
Nutrient Deficiency in Trees and Shrubs
It’s likely most of your trees and shrubs will not be in their native habitats. This makes it easy for the plants to become nutrient-deficient. This won’t happen, of course, in natural environments. But unless all your plants are natural, they’ll need fertilization to maximize their 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
- Supplement Treatments
- Tree Injections
