When is fertiliser needed?

Fertiliser applications play a vital role in lawn care throughout the year.

But as we move closer to spring, now is the time to start thinking about the balance of nutrients your lawn will need to stay healthy and green in the upcoming months.

Why is fertiliser critical?

Fertiliser application is a fundamental component in maintaining the quality and appearance of your lawn.

But why?

Firstly, the correct nutrients must reach the roots and be taken in by your grass plant.

Moreover, it’s equally critical that the plant receives the correct nutrients to regenerate and achieve growth as temperatures rise.

What are the correct nutrients?

All lawn fertilisers are based on three macronutrients:

  • Nitrogen
  • Phosphate
  • And Potassium

Each plays a role in helping your lawn achieve a good colour, leaf growth, root depth, and ability to withstand drought and diseases.

Other elements are also needed in the spring period.

For example, Iron Sulphate is central in controlling any moss that may form during winter.

This has the added benefit of strengthening the grass plant too!

A balanced application of macronutrients is essential for healthy grass growth.
