Do I Need To Fertilize My Colorado Springs Lawn?
- February 1, 2019
Colorado Springs — a short drive from the glorious Rocky Mountains, Cave of the Winds, Garden of the Gods, home of the United States Air Force Academy Falcons, and one of the most desirable places to live in the United States. It’s the place that we call home, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
One of the few challenges of living in Colorado Springs is the problems that lawn enthusiasts experience when figuring out the best ways to care for their yards. Without a whole lot of effort, many lawns in Colorado may grow, but without dedicated, thoughtful care, few will thrive. Today’s blog post from Integrated Lawn & Tree Care — Colorado Springs’ Top Rated Local® lawn care company — will address the question, “Do I need to fertilize my Colorado Springs lawn?”
The answer is yes. Read on to learn more or contact the professional lawn care experts at Integrated Lawn & Tree Care today to schedule an appointment.
Let’s start with the most basic argument for fertilizing your lawn. The grass in your front and back yard is made up of living, breathing organisms. Like any other biological being, your grass needs air, water, and food to survive and grow. Without the elements that are crucial to its health — nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, potassium, and sulfur — your grass will be less resistant to disease, blight, bugs, and even inclement weather.
Make sure to fertilize your lawn at the appropriate times throughout the year to have the healthiest, greenest, most resilient lawn possible.
You’ve been to the doctor and you’ve seen the dentist. You know that when it comes to being healthy, prevention is the key to success. Avoiding problems is always going to be easier, more cost-efficient, and provide a greater sense of satisfaction than chasing them.
When your lawn is properly fertilized, its root system will be denser, stronger, and healthier than it would be without fertilization. Stronger roots can help with droughts, can soak up more nutrients, and will even help suppress weeds and pests in your lush, green lawn.
You may have gotten by so far on recycling nutrients in your lawn by leaving your clippings and maintaining an appropriate watering schedule, but to really take your lawn to the next level, you have to take your lawn care to the next level.
Adding in seasonal fertilizing at the right times of year will promote a healthier lawn that will hold up better to virtually every stressor thrown at it — including pets and regular trampling from kiddos enjoying the feel of that thick, cool grass underneath their feet. Your lawn does so much for you, treat it well with proper fertilization and keep it working hard for you and your family for years to come.
