The Bloomington Lawn Care professionals know that the composition of every lawn is different, thereby requiring a custom approach to fertilization for each customer. Our lawn care experts have the tools to analyze the pH of your soil to determine the exact nutrients that your soil is lacking. We know the best times to fertilize your lawn and the proper amount of fertilizer to apply to maximize desired results. Through our custom fertilization process, your soil will receive a special combination of nutrients formulated to promote the growth of a greener, fuller lawn.
The first step in our fertilization process is to test your soil to determine whether there are any nutrient deficiencies. The three nutrients that are most frequently found to be deficient are nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorous. Each of these nutrients plays a key role in the health of your lawn. Nitrogen, for instance, helps to make your grass green and thick while phosphorous provides strength to the individual roots of the grass. Potassium helps build stamina within your blades of grass, enabling your lawn to withstand extreme temperatures.
At Bloomington Lawn Care, we will analyze the results of your pH test to recommend the fertilizer that will best meet the needs of your lawn. They will also consider the Bloomington climate, the age of your grass, and the condition of your lawn prior to selecting and applying your fertilizer. Depending upon the needs of your lawn, we will typically apply either a granular fertilizer or a liquid fertilizer. We even have access to organic and synthetic fertilizers if requested. Organic fertilizers are often the choice of environmentally conscious residents, and are comprised of animal or vegetable matter and manure.
After selecting the best type of fertilizer for your lawn, our lawn technicians will outline an application schedule to maximize results. The amount of fertilizer and frequency of application are key factors to consider in the fertilization process, and our team of experts will ensure that your lawn is not “over-fertilized” (a common mistake made by inexperienced lawn maintenance personnel). We also employ the latest in fertilizer spreading technology to ensure that your fertilizer is properly dispersed.
