Q

Why is fertilization important for my lawn?

Putting fertilizer on your lawn can be the difference between a weak, brown lawn and having the best lawn on the block. Grass needs certain nutrients in order to survive. For example, nitrogen and potassium each play important roles in encouraging healthy growth. Fertilizer for grass will ensure that it gets enough of these nutrients to thrive all year long.

Q

When is the best time to fertilize my lawn?

The best time to fertilize your lawn is in the Fall because this is when your lawn is putting down deep roots to survive the winter. But, we also recommend 5-6 applications during the growing season.

Q

How can I tell if my lawn needs fertilizer?

You can often tell that grass is missing nutrients when it’s not showing the vibrant green color you want. Unhealthy grass might appear yellow, reddish-brown (rust), or even dull blue-green or purple, depending on what it's lacking. An invasion of weeds, damage after mowing, sparse growth, and patches of light-colored or dead grass are also ways your lawn can tell you there’s a problem.

Q

Why should I hire a professional?

In order to get your lawn to its peak potential and maintain its beauty, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. Sharper Image Lawn Care has the knowledge and experience to keep your lawn looking its best!
