Our lawn fertilizer guide will share share tips for fertilizing your lawn to achieve the lush, green grass you’ve always wanted.

Why Fertilize Your Lawn?

Fertilizing your lawn is essential for maintaining healthy, vibrant grass. Fertilizers provide crucial nutrients that grass needs to grow strong and resist diseases. A well-fertilized lawn looks beautiful and contributes to a healthy environment by improving air quality and reducing soil erosion.

Types of Lawn Fertilizers

Organic Fertilizers

Organic fertilizers are made from natural materials like compost, manure, and bone meal. They release nutrients slowly, promoting long-term soil health and reducing the risk of over-fertilization. Super Green’s organic lawn care approach uses the best organic fertilizers to ensure your lawn is healthy and environmentally friendly.

Synthetic Fertilizers

Synthetic fertilizers are chemically manufactured and provide a quick nutrient boost. They are easy to apply and can deliver immediate results. However, it’s important to follow application guidelines to avoid over-fertilization and potential environmental harm.

When to Fertilize Your Lawn

Timing is crucial when fertilizing your lawn. In Fort Wayne, the best times to fertilize are spring and fall. Below, we explain why!


Early spring is ideal for applying a balanced fertilizer to jumpstart grass growth after winter. Look for a higher nitrogen content fertilizer to encourage lush, green growth.


Fall fertilization helps prepare your lawn for winter and promotes strong root development. Use a fertilizer with a higher potassium content to boost root strength and overall health.

How to Apply Fertilizer

Test Your Soil

Before applying fertilizer, test your soil to determine its nutrient needs. Soil tests can identify deficiencies and help you choose the right fertilizer.

Choose the Right Fertilizer

Based on your soil test results, select a fertilizer that meets your lawn’s specific needs. Super Green offers a range of high-quality fertilizers tailored to different soil types and conditions.

Proper Application

Follow these steps for effective fertilizer application:

  • Measure Your Lawn: Calculate the size of your lawn to determine the amount of fertilizer needed.
  • Spread Evenly: Use a broadcast spreader for even distribution. Avoid overlapping to prevent over-fertilization.
  • Water Appropriately: Water your lawn after applying fertilizer to help nutrients penetrate the soil. Avoid overwatering, as it can wash away nutrients.

Came out and sprayed my yard today! Very very nice guy! I have problems with the neighbors not treating their yard and transferring weeds into my yard and he worked with the neighbors and sprayed their yard for free to help the weed situation in my yard! They were on time and did a great job for a very fair price!!

Met a member of the team as he was working on another home in my neighborhood. Perfect timing as I was in need of lawn care. He was very friendly and offered to help out with the weeds in my front yard — gave me information about the business— excited to see my yard look as good as the neighbors!

When we finished building our new home and installing a brand new lawn in Summer 2020, we needed serious help with care and maintenance. We reached out to Michael at Super Green Lawn Care, and we're so happy we did. In just 1.5 years, our lawn is thick and green and healthy, thanks to the customized treatments Michel put together, and it's perfectly manicured, thanks to his maintenance services. We've received numerous compliments from neighbors, family and friends — they're all impressed with how far our lawn has come in such a short time. No doubt, we'll be using Super Green Lawn Care for years to come. Love them!

The owner was driving by and saw me out trying to spray my weeds one-by-one. He stopped and offered to spray my yard for free. He told me what he was spraying it with and what he recommended in the future and where to buy it myself. If I wasn't planning on selling my home soon, I'd hire him in an instant!

I am looking forward to doing more business with Michael. He is knowledgeable about the our regions lawn and soil needs. I appreciate the dialogue he openly and honestly shares regarding my specific needs. He doesn’t rush the process nor ignore the customers inquiries. He is very willing to get helpful explanations and guidance. I really appreciate having someone like him I can trust. He went the “extra mile” for me, which was a service that wasn’t scheduled, but he helped me, on a hot day, without hesitation. I really appreciate there are people like that around that really care! I would highly recommend Michael and his Team.

We love Mike. He always communicated with us, our yard always looked amazing, and I feel it's nicely priced. Especially for me not having to worry about cutting my own lawn. We also had the fertilizer treatment. Our grass was clearly greener than anyone else. When I move to my new house, Super Green will definitely be one of the things I take with me.

Michael is passionate about lawn care. He is very knowledgeable about the soil we have here and the best seed and fertilizer to use to get the best results. My lawn was newly planted last summer and before I contacted him it was a sea of weeds and crabgrass. The seeding and fertilizing plan he implemented made a huge improvement in the appearance of my lawn by the end of the fall season. I highly recommend him!

I was really impressed with these folks. I called them today because my lawnmower broke down. They came out today and mowed my lawn and promise to be back next week because I hired them immediately. The professionalism was outstanding. They explained everything they were going to do. They did what they promised. My yard looks great. And I have plans to use them in the future for more projects that I have in mind.
