When you live in South Carolina, you have the benefit of nearly year-round outdoor living, but we especially love our summers. The weather is beautiful, and it’s great to spend time in our backyards, patios, and gardens. But only if the grass is green. How is your grass looking this summer? We’ve got three reasons to fertilize your lawn so you can get the most out of your yard.
#1: Nourish the Soil
The only way to have a healthy lawn is with healthy soil. And the best way to get healthy soil is by providing it with the right nutrients, including phosphorous, nitrate, and potassium. A quality fertilizer helps replenish what’s lost from rain, irrigation, sun, weather, and time.
#2: Stronger, Greener Grass
When the soil is healthy, the grass will be healthy. The only way to have a lush green lawn is by taking care of it properly with adequate water, proper mowing, and fertilizer. The fertilizer feeds the grass to keep it green and give it added strength to endure the scorching summer heat and the extreme weather we see in the South.
#3: Weed and Pest Control
Weeds take hold when the grass isn’t strong or thick enough to keep them at bay. Fertilizer isn’t a weed killer, but it prevents weed growth by helping your grass grow strong, ample roots that don’t provide the space or nutrients the weeds need. Pests aren’t an issue with a healthy lawn, either. When your grass and soil are healthy, they provide an ecosystem perfect for garden bugs that love nothing more than eating those grass and garden-killing pests.
