Fertilize Your Lawn for Optimum Summer Growth

Blog Contributed by Stephen McClain

When the summer sun shines bright, your first thought may be to hit the pool, not about keeping your business’s commercial landscape fertilized. We all know how important fertilizer is to maintaining a healthy, lush lawn. And, you need to provide your lawn with supplemental nutrients to make sure your landscape flourishes. The three main supplemental nutrients that compose a complete fertilizer are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K), so be on the lookout for these three ingredients. At Great Estates Landscaping, we recommend using a slow release fertilizer for your lawn this time of year. Why?

In this Georgia heat, your turf needs its nutrients to last. There are several benefits of slow-release nitrogen in fertilizers. They provide more uniform grass growth and they are less likely to burn the lawn or other plants. Slow-release fertilizers also stay in your soil for 6 to 8 weeks or longer. Which means, you spend more time enjoying your lawn and less time fertilizing it.

Great Estates recommends an annual chemical program for all of our customers to give your lawn a boost throughout the year. We use a combination of liquid and dry-granular products to create an optimal environment for a lush, green, weed-free lawn. We use environmentally sound products and keep pesticide use to a minimum.

Call our experts today and ask about Our Annual Turf Management Program. The program includes seven applications: two applications in the spring for pre- and post-emergent weed control, three applications of slow-release fertilizers to promote active growth and superb color during the summer, and two rounds of weed control in the fall and winter for winter annual weeds.

Feel free to contact us to discuss your landscaping needs and fertilizer treatment. We look forward to hearing from you!
