A thriving lawn is all about chemistry. Typically, nature and science are kept in separate categories but these have more to do with one another than you might think. For example, when a lawn or garden is balanced, it means healthy colouring and lush growth but when it isn’t, you are looking at dry or dead grass. If you are dealing with an unappealing lawn, all it takes is one call to an Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! specialist to fix your issue. Our professional Shellbrook fertilizing can help to restore balance to homes, commercial properties and strata spaces.
Understanding Garden & Lawn Fertilizing
On the surface, all it takes to apply fertilizer is a bag of materials and a pair of gardening gloves. This might work for bits and pieces of your yard but it won’t get a good result throughout. Laying down fertilizer along your driveway, sidewalk or foundations might improve these areas but without the right tools and techniques, you can’t achieve the healthy lawn that you want. Healthy grass starts by digging deep, roots and all. By encouraging healthy root growth, you are setting your grass up for success. The reasons that grass suffers is that it is missing something. Consider your outdoor space like a puzzle; one missing piece can drag down the whole picture. Soil contains a mix of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium that are balanced differently depending of the type of grass that you have. Managing growth and condition means managing this naturally occurring chemical balance. When this is thrown out of balance, greenery suffers – but our experts are here to help!
The first step to any successful lawn and garden service is soil testing. By properly testing soil, an expert can determine what your property needs more of and what it can do without. Loading up on pounds of nitrogen enriched fertilizer won’t solve your problem if your soil is not nitrogen deficient. Once your issue is properly identified, all that is left is application. Plants both live and breathe but unlike humans, you don’t have to feed your lawn every day. Lawn “food” can be applied multiple times a year but the most common time to feed your lawn is the growing season, during early spring.
Understanding Your Space
All grass might look the same to an untrained eye, but there is a big difference between treatments. Knowing the needs of cool season grasses versus warm season grasses can make a difference in when treatments take place. The size of properties also plays a role in how fertilizer is applied. Put those garden gloves down and let an expert tackle your space with a broadcast spreader or a drop spreader. Instead of taking full control, Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! specialists work alongside clients to not only get results but to answer questions and help clients properly understand their home or working environment.
