Fertilizer is an important part of maintaining a healthy and patch free lawn. But what makes it so important to keep your lawn looking great? It all boils down to the fact that grass fertilizer is what plants eat to stay healthy and continue growing. We provide the lawn food your yard needs to look great.

The three essential food sources for plant life that are included in a good fertilizer are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
Nitrogen is the main food source that plants need, and lawn grasses specifically require a much larger quantity of nitrogen than any other plant life. That is why choosing a high-quality fertilizer that has a much higher ratio of nitrogen to phosphorus and potassium ensures that your lawn receives the proper amount of food required to actively grow.


You might be wondering why you should invest in a service to fertilize your yard when you could do it yourself. While it is very possible for you to take care of lawn fertilization on your own, there are a few benefits to hiring a service like us instead. Below are a few key benefits that make hiring a service much more appealing.


  • Take the Proper Steps: Talk to a specialist that ensures you fertilize under the right conditions. Schedule a free consultation with one of our lawn care experts to set up a plan. Many times in Atlanta lawn aeration is required due to the red clay soil Georgia is known for.
  • No investment into equipment or materials: Proper fertilizing requires two main pieces of equipment and materials that can be expensive to purchase such as quality drop spreaders and fertilizer.
  • Proper fertilizer ingredients: There are many different types of fertilizer that all have a different makeup of the three main ingredients nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. While grass-based plants thrive on high levels of nitrogen it still depends on the type of grass your yard has. Different types of grass require different fertilizer ingredients making it difficult to choose the right one.
  • Over Fertilizing: while fertilizer is an integral part of lawn maintenance there is such a thing as too much. The proper amount is calculated by the square footage of your lawn, and the type of grass you have. If you feed too much it can cause harm to your grass and can cause yellow or brown grass.
  • Routine Maintenance Schedule: Proper scheduling of fertilization treatments is important to maintaining a green and healthy lawn. A trained lawn expert knows how to set up a proper fertilizing schedule by analyzing the nitrogen release date. This is how fast the nitrogen is released into the lawn based on how fast the grass greens up and how fast it grows. Different types of fertilizers also have slower or faster release schedules which add to the schedule setup.
  • Experience: Combining the proper schedule with other lawn improvements like fungicide treatment, weed control, and overseeding in Atlanta.

There are so many different types, brands, and forms of fertilizers available on the market. This makes it exceedingly difficult to not only choose a good fertilizer for your needs but know what the real difference is between them. It all starts with the abbreviation NPK.
NPK stands for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in that order and it is the foundation of which every fertilizer is made around. Nitrogen stimulates plant growth most effectively on grass and lawns as they require a large amount of nitrogen to flourish. Phosphorus helps plants strengthen their stems and root systems, as well as flowering, seeding, and fruiting.
Potassium helps plants grow deeper and stronger roots, helps protect them from harm if they are deprived of other nutrients and is integral for photosynthesis. All fertilizers contain a different makeup of NPK as different plant life requires different levels of each. Below is some information on the types of fertilizer you can buy:


  • Organic and Inorganic Fertilizer: Organic fertilizer is made using only natural materials such as manure, compost, and other animal and plant products and tends to have a higher level of nutrients. Inorganic fertilizer is made using chemicals that contain the nutrients and is great for short-term use and plant boosts.
  • Forms of Fertilizer: fertilizer comes in three different forms that can be useful for different situations. Granule fertilizers are easily spread on top of soil or grass and are slowly soaked into the ground over time as you water. Powdered fertilizer is spread using a spreader and then must be watered in to ensure it is absorbed properly. And finally, there is liquid-based fertilizer which is usually mixed with water and spread through a garden hose attachment.
