A beautiful, lush yard looks undeniably amazing. On top of an attractive appearance, it also nourishes the earth, cleans the air of pollutants, and keeps you cool. However, especially during the hot summer months in Middlesex County, CT, it can be difficult to maintain a verdant, luscious lawn. If your yard has dry patches, weeds, or simply looks a little dull, The Lawn Surgeon recommends shaking up your lawn care routine. By practicing healthy habits, including using a quality fertilizer, you’ll be optimally set up to enjoy your yard all year long.
Why Use Lawn Fertilizer?
1. Prevent Weed Growth
Whether deep-rooted dandelions or broadleaf clovers are sprouting up in your backyard, once seeded, many weeds are very aggressive. Rather than killing them after they emerge, preventing them from growing in the first place is much easier. A quality lawn fertilizer will keep your yard free of crabgrass and other green pests. Some fertilizers are also designed to combat weeds once they emerge.
2. Provide Essential Nutrients
Healthy grass starts in the soil. While your existing soil might not contain all the healthy nutrients and minerals needed for your grass to thrive, a fertilizer can add them. The right levels of essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium will help your grass grow more fully.
3. Produce Healthy, Clean Air
A quality fertilizer will ensure the strongest, greenest grass possible. Better still, a healthy lawn naturally filters the air of pollutants, dust, and particulate matter. Like other plants, grass also functions as a carbon sink, which means it absorbs harmful CO2 from the atmosphere. If you want cleaner air for your family as well as the world, take care of your lawn.
