How to Apply Garden Fertilizers
Slow-release fertilizers are perfect for your lawn if you want the nutrients let out slowly over a period of time. These fertilizers are commercially produced and on offer fertility reading at most home and hardware suppliers.
Since slow-release lawn fertilizers let go of their nutrients in time, rather than at the same time, you’re essentially stretching out the feeding. As nutrients are freed, the root system of your grass fills in any bare spots. This alone promotes lawn weed control, starving weed seeds of a place to germinate, thus eradicating the weed plant on your lawn.
Before buying these or any other lawn fertilizers, read the recommendations on the bag thoroughly (or ask someone at the store for more details). A specific product may not be appropriate for your type of grass. In the same way, when working with lawn fertilizers, follow directions explicitly, concerning the amount to implement, how often they must be applied, and under what circumstances they should be applied.
Lawn fertilizers are best put to use with spreaders. Be cautious to never fill the applicator with the spreader left parked on the lawn. To do so encourages grass-burn, as chances are you’ll accidentally expel an excessive amount while loading. Instead, fill the applicator someplace else, then move the spreader onto the lawn. Many people are going green with their growing using chemical free fertilizers and weed control. However, they don’t realistically provide you with an advantage when fertilizing your lawn and garden.
Plants soak up nutrients in the same manner whether or not the source be organic or a standard fertilizer. Turf grass roots will only soak up dissolved nutrients within the soil water. Organic fertilizers do not offer any advantages to the treatment of your lawn. The option is really just personal preference, so avoid getting worked up over the disparities between both. The critical thing is that you are utilizing a fertilizer of any sort, as (in most cases) any fertilizer is more effective than none.
