It matters what type of grass you have, the timing of use and of course the right kind of fertilizer to go with. The seasons in New England can be very tricky, so making sure to lay down the right fertilizers to grow strong healthy grass can take quite some effort.

Importance of Lawn Fertilizer

Substances that are crucial for plant life to grow are found in the fertilizers that are used to keep your lawn up to standard. Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium are the main ingredients of your fertilizers. You can use organic or chemical treatments for your lawn which is where the environmental impact comes into play. All variables should be considered when applying the right kinds of fertilizer from kids, all the way to pets.

  • Nitrogen promotes healthy leaf growth by encouraging the production of chlorophyll, which is a chemical vital to photosynthesis.
  • Phosphorus helps your lawn develop healthy roots and stems.
  • Potassium gives your lawn strength, helping it to resist drought and disease.

When to Fertilize Your Lawn

The appearance and type of your grass has a lot to do with the type of fertilizer you should go with. The many different grass types will have different growth periods. There are warm and cool grasses that can be found and grown in New England.

For warm season grasses, it is good to feed them from late spring to early fall. Cool season grasses tend to grow more rapidly in the cooler months. It’s important to feed the grass at the right times because you can cause damage to the growth if you don’t. If you don’t fertilize at the right time, the grass can take more harm during the harsh winter months and lead to more effort, time, and money to repair.
