It’s that time of the year again: the weather is getting warmer, the snow is finally melting for good. But under those last few piles of snow, you see your lawn, grimacing at the sight. What used to be your beautiful, picturesque lawn has become just a memory. As spring begins to make its way, it’s time to start focusing on a healthier, fuller, and greener lawn. The first step to an envious lawn is to decide between using organic granular fertilizer or liquid fertilizer.
Organic Granular Fertilizer
At Tee Time Lawn Care, we use an organic granular fertilizer. Granular fertilizer has “slow-releasing” ingredients. Your lawn might not be the brightest shade of green just yet, but it will be once summer rolls around. Unlike liquid fertilizer, our organic granular fertilizer is kid and pet-friendly. Additionally, organic granular fertilizer has zero burn potential, high iron to maintain color, and full of micro-nutrient missing from most programs, including zinc, magnesium, and calcium.
Other lawn care companies choose to use liquid fertilizer since it is a faster option for your grass to absorb that lush and green look you craved. Your lawn might even see results from this application almost immediately. However, all good things come to an end: the faster you get that green color, the faster it will disappear. Not many liquid fertilizers are kid and pet-friendly either and warn to have your children and four-legged friends to keep off the grass for 24-48 hours after application. Additionally, too much liquid fertilizer can burn also burn the grass, leaving discolored streaks on the lawn and damage plant foliage.
Applying fertilizer may sound like an easy and hassle-free way to feed your lawn. However, there are a few considerations you’ll want to take into account before you decide to use organic granular fertilizer or liquid fertilizer. Weighing the pros and cons of each type can help you choose the right method for creating a healthy environment for your plants.
