Posted by Shawn Karn, The Grass Expert

4/8/15 10:30 AM

One of the single most important things you can do for
your lawn is to provide it with the plant essential nutrients
it requires to grow healthy when spring fertilizing. Balanced fertility throughout
the season ensures the lawn will stay green, thick, healthy,
and robust.

Fertilizing provides many benefits to the lawn including some
of the best visual impacts with relatively minimal effort and
expense. Spring fertilization is very important in the overall
process of the lawns fertility requirement. Using a fertilizer
blend that contains the 3 major nutrients nitrogen, phosphorus,

homeowners. If a lawn could talk, it would likely say the
same! After months of snow and ice cover, along with being
subjected to the harsh elements of winter, most lawns have

Melting snow is openly welcomed with a warm reception
as it marks a sure sign spring is in the air. Snow banks begin
to quickly recede, ice thaws into water and the lawn slowly
becomes uncovered. What the lawn will look like and most
importantly how it has overwintered remains to be seen?
