If you want your lawn to look its best, fertilization is a must – but it’s easier said than done! Apply fertilizer to your lawn has to be done just right, otherwise you could end up with something worse than you started with. Let’s take a look at some of the steps that are involved, some of the common mistakes people make (and how to avoid them), and some reasons you may want to consider hiring a professional.
Common Lawn Fertilization Mistakes
The first mistake people make is neglecting to test their soil. How can you know what fertilizers to add if you don’t know the natural state of your soil? This can lead to people either over-fertilizing, or under-fertilizing. Soil samples are crucial to establish a baseline, and to eliminate the guesswork.
Besides using too much or too little fertilizer, another big mistake that people make is to fertilize at the wrong times of year. The correct time to apply fertilizer depends on a number of factors, including the length of your lawn-growing season, where you live, the results of your soil test, and more.
Applying fertilizer carelessly can lead to all sorts of issues for the local ecosystem, These products contain heavy nutrients, and they can cause problems for local wildlife if they get into ponds, wetlands, and so on. They’re meant for your lawn, and that’s it.
