What is Lawn Fertilizer?

Lawn fertilizer is simply any product or substance that you apply to your lawn that the grass may use as a resource for nutrients. The actions of fertilizers applied to your lawn are to strengthen the grass blade, strengthen and fortify the grass root system, provide rapid release as well as delayed release nutrition, and to supplement the soil with nutrients not present naturally.

 

The benefits of a well-designed lawn nutrition program in Texas manifests as thick, green turf that can withstand the rigors of Texas heat and drought conditions.

 

All fertilizers are labeled prominently with three numbers that correspond to their macro nutrient content as a percentage of total product weight. As an example, a fertilizer that is labeled 18-5-5 would contain 18% Nitrogen, 5% Phosphorus, and 5% Potash (or useable Potassium Ash). 100lbs of this example product would contain 18lbs of Nitrogen, 5lbs of Phosphorus, and 5lbs of Potassium Ash.

 

These numbers are necessary when calibrating equipment to ensure that you are delivering the necessary amount of nutrients to your lawn.

 

Lawn fertilizer is primarily produced in either liquid or granular form. Each have their similarities but also have various properties that require their own application equipment and treatment strategies.

 

Liquid fertilizers are generally designed for spray foliar applications where the goal is to have the plant leaves or blades uptake the nutrients quickly, providing an immediate biological boost. Granular fertilizers are applied to your lawn with a spreader and can provide both quick release and slow-release nutrients.
