Benefits of Lawn Fertilization

Fertilizing your lawn is an investment in time and money, so you may find yourself wondering if the investment is really worthwhile. How much benefit will you really receive from lawn fertilization?

Here are five ways lawn fertilization benefits your lawn, both now and in the future.

1. Weed Reduction

Most of today’s fertilizers also carry weed-prevention treatments. Even those that don’t help with weed control by giving the healthy grass the tools it needs to grow thick and strong. Thick, strong grass with a deep bed of roots will be less likely to fall victim to weeds.

2. Better Disease Resistance

Have you ever lost a big portion of your grass all at once? This is often because of disease, which attacks the grass from the root. When grass has the right nutrients to grow strong, it’s much less prone to disease.

Remember, grass is alive, just like you, and it needs the right nutrients to protect it from illness.

3. Improved Overall Growth

Every homeowner knows the frustration of grass that grows thick and lush in one area of the yard, only to come in sparse and thin in another. Often, this is due to a lack of nutrients in the less-lush part of the yard.

Uneven nutrients can be caused by natural factors that affect the soil differently in different parts of the yard. Lawn fertilization will help produce uniform growth, with the entire lawn looking lush and thick.

4. Protection for the Soil

Grass draws nutrients from the soil in order to grow healthy. Thick grass, which is the result of fertilization, helps eliminate soil runoff. Properly fertilized soil is also less likely to become depleted by natural rain and storms.

Healthy soil will promote healthy grass for future years, so this is an investment in the future of your yard.

5. Resistance to Pests

Finally, a healthy lawn that’s properly fertilized is more resistant to damage from pests. Whether or not your fertilizer includes insecticides, the thicker your lawn grows, the harder it is for pests to take hold.
