What Type of Lawn Fertilizer Should You Use?

DIY Lawn Care with these organic fertilizersThere are so many different types of lawn fertilizer products available on the market today that it can be very overwhelming when it comes time for you to purchase some lawn fertilizer to use on your own yard. When deciding on which type of fertilizer is the very best to use, there are several things that you will need to consider.

  • Do you want to simply apply fertilizer just one time this year or would you rather apply fertilizer frequently if it meant that youÂ’d receive better results?
  • Would you rather use a natural and organic fertilizer or a synthetic version?
  • Is your main concern the appearance of your yard or the budget that you have to work with?

All of these things can have an effect on your decision when choosing the right yard fertilizer.

Another thing that you should consider when trying to find the right type of fertilizer for your lawn is the nutrient and mineral content. Different types of grass seed require different amounts of nutrients to grow at their full potential, therefore you will want to buy lawn fertilizer that has the nutrients that your lawn is currently in need of.

Chemical vs. Organic

Many people think that the same chemical-fed lawn fertilizer that they have always used has to work better than any type of natural and organic fertilizer. But the truth is that you can get the same, if not better, results from natural lawn fertilizer that you can get from the synthetic brands. And fertilizer that is made from all natural ingredients is safe and easy to use so you do not have to worry about using it around your children or pets.

Organic fertilizers need to be applied more than once during the growing season, and for the very best results, you should apply it all throughout the year so that your grass will receive all of the helpful nutrients that it needs during the fall as well so that it can store away these helpful ingredients during the winter, and return in early spring as bright and strong as ever.

Nutrients in Fertilizer

Free seasonal reminders Depending on where you live and the type of grass seed that you used in your lawn, your grass may need more of the main essential ingredients in fertilizer than other types of grass grown from different seed. Nitrogen and Potassium levels may be very low in some types of grass; therefore you need to find a lawn fertilizer that will contain high levels of these minerals in order to give your grass a healthy boost. Fertilizers that contain a lot of additional minerals such as zinc, iron and sulfur will provide many benefits to your soil as well as your seedbed.
