The Importance of Fertilizing Your Lawn

20 Apr 20

Warmer temperatures are beginning to hit here in the Columbia area. Spring is underway and those summer months are just around the corner. At this point, you’re probably starting to notice your lawn. Whether it is looking long, green, and lush or it dry, stiff, and discolored — now is the time to feed your lawn.

We are all aware of how sunlight and regular watering is important to the health of grass, but fertilizer is just as important to the structural health and prosperity of your lawn. Without seasonal fertilizing, soil loses natural nutrients over time and becomes susceptible to disease and death when the ground is not replenished with the necessary nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These three nutrients provide stimulate growth and healthy development:

  • Nitrogen: Helps promote fast growth, leaf development, chlorophyll formation, and protein synthesis.
  • Phosphorus: Key player in early root development, hastens maturity, and stimulates blooming and seed formation.
  • Potassium: Aids in providing weather-resistant traits to protect against drought. It also helps stimulate root growth and stem development.

Lawns are constantly exposed to harsh weather conditions, especially here in Missouri where we receive all four seasons. In addition to constant use and disruption from pets, animals, and homeowners — lawns must be groomed in order to sustain overall health. By fertilizing in the spring, early summer, and fall seasons, your grass will extend its lifespan and become more durable to everyday life.
