Worthington, Ohio Lawn Fertilization Program
Keeping up with your lawn is an important part of house maintenance. Fertilization can turn an average lawn into one that catches attention. Don’t fall victim to the perils of unfertilized lawns: weeds, dandelions and crabgrass. Even if your lawn is already in this condition, it can be fixed with a fertilization program.
You might be surprised to learn that regular fertilization of your lawn is defined as several times per year, depending on the lawn. Once a year will not do the trick. Earth Art & Landscape will work with you to define a proper fertilization schedule. .
Our lawn fertilization programs through include multiple applications per year. Think about fertilizing like you think about cutting your lawn. You mow the grass multiple times a year. The same is necessary for fertilization.
You’ll quickly begin to notice the benefits of committing to a fertilization program, particularly if you haven’t fertilized in the past. Benefits of fertilization include:
- Fewer weeds: weeds will try to grow anywhere, but will find it particularly difficult to grow in a fertilized lawn.
- Less watering: a well-fertilized lawn doesn’t need to be watered as much, saving you time.
- 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.
You’ll be pleased to know fertilization saves money in the long run. You’ll spend less money on weed treatment and other associated maintenance fees. Fertilization is also environmentally responsible. You’ll have an impressive lawn, one that is environmentally friendly! This is a winning 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.
Just as you need to eat food to maintain a healthy weight, your lawn needs food (fertilizer) to maintain a healthy appearance. Fertilizer contains the nutrients and minerals necessary for your lawn to reach its maximum potential.
It’s helpful to know exactly what fertilizer does. It accomplishes a number of things. Fertilizer maintains lawn density and plant vigor. It also enhances the green color while encouraging growth and recovery. In other words, fertilizer makes your lawn look how it would look in a professional picture. Seasonal stresses like heat and drought can take a toll on your lawn without fertilizer. The right fertilizer at the right time helps plants accumulate and store the essential plant foods used for growth and development.
Fertilizing goes beyond just improving the lawn quality. An effective fertilization program means you’ll need fewer pesticides to manage weeds, diseases and insects. And if you’re a fan of environmental friendliness, fertilized lawns can help protect the water by reducing runoff and soil problems.
Additional Lawn Treatments Include:
- Pest and insect treatment
- Specific disease control
- Core aeration
- Soil testing
There are numerous negative traits associated with unfertilized lawns. There are the physical aspects: yellowing, dry, thin lawns coated with weeds, dandelions, clovers and crabgrass. Malnourished turf grasses are also more likely to be damaged by diseases and insects.
Worthington, Ohio Tree & Shrub Fertilization Program
Think beyond only fertilizing your lawn. Your trees and shrubs also need treatment. Just as your lawn needs that food, your trees and shrubs need to “eat” to look their fullest. Unless you want dull, dying landscaping, fertilization is a must.
Like our lawn fertilization program, our tree and shrub fertilization program consists of multiple applications per year. We can create a custom program based on your needs.
If you’ve ever seen a malnourished, dying plant, it’s probably not fertilized. Fertilization supplements the naturally-occurring, essential mineral elements in the soil. Doing this creates an optimal environment for growth. Consider fertilizer the protein bar or shake for your plants.
Nutrient Deficiency in Trees and Shrubs
It’s likely that many of your trees and shrubs are not growing in their native habitats. This means there’s a risk of nutrient deficiency. Nutrient deficiency means your landscaping won’t look its healthiest and best.
Most places you see plants are foreign environments, including nurseries, streets and generic landscape plantings. Because the plants aren’t “from” these locations, the soils may not be entirely compatible with the plants. That’s where fertilizer comes in. Fertilizer helps overcome planting schemes or maintenance practices which may not be ideal.
Additional Tree & Shrub Treatments Include:
- Deep Root Feeding
- Supplement Treatments
- Tree Injections
