Knowing When To Fertilize Your Lawn

Achieving a lush and vibrant lawn requires strategic timing for fertilization. Super Green understands the importance of proper nutrient management in maintaining a healthy and beautiful lawn. We’ll guide you through the best times to fertilize your lawn for optimal growth and long-term health. Trust the expertise of Super Green Lawn Care to help you achieve the green oasis you desire.

Early Spring

Early spring is an ideal time to kick-start your lawn’s growth after the winter dormancy period. Super Green recommends applying a slow-release, nitrogen-rich fertilizer in early spring. This helps replenish your lawn’s nutrients for a strong start, encouraging healthy green growth and promoting root development as the growing season begins.

Late Spring

As temperatures rise and your lawn enters its active growth phase, late spring is another critical time for fertilization. Applying a balanced fertilizer with essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium helps sustain the vibrant growth of your lawn. Super Green recommends choosing a fertilizer specifically formulated for the needs of your grass type to ensure optimal results.

Early Summer

Your lawn may experience increased stress in early summer due to higher temperatures and more intense sunlight. Super Green advises applying a slow-release or controlled-release fertilizer to provide a steady supply of nutrients over an extended period. This helps fortify your lawn, improving its ability to withstand summer heat and potential drought conditions.

Early Fall

Fall is a crucial season for lawn care, and early fall is an excellent fertilization time. Super Green recommends using a fall-specific fertilizer with a higher phosphorus content. This promotes root development and strengthens your lawn, preparing it for the upcoming winter months. Fertilizing in early fall allows the nutrients to be absorbed by the roots before the grass goes into its dormant phase.

Late Fall

Late fall is the final opportunity to fertilize before winter sets in. Super Green suggests using a winterizing fertilizer to protect and nourish your lawn during the dormant period. Winterizing fertilizers typically have a higher potassium content, which aids in strengthening the grass and improving cold tolerance, helping your property survive the winter and emerge healthy in the spring.

Additional Considerations

While the times mentioned above are general guidelines, it’s essential to consider your specific grass type, regional climate, and lawn condition. Consulting with the experts at Super Green allows for a customized approach to fertilization based on your lawn’s unique needs.

Nothing Beats Professional Lawn Care

Knowing when to start fertilizing your lawn is crucial for maintaining its health, vibrancy, and resilience. Super Green’s seasonal guide provides you with the optimal times to apply fertilizers throughout the year. By following these recommendations and considering your specific lawn requirements, you can ensure that your lawn receives the right nutrients at the right time.

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.
