In exciting news, building off of those winning relationships, the team at Colbert Lawn Service is now sharing monthly tips on how to have the best lawn possible.

This month’s piece of advice: improper use of fertilizer.  Properly applied fertilizer helps lawns grow thick and full, allowing grass to be strong enough to overpower weeds that try to take up root. But there are a host of mistakes that rookies can make when applying fertilizer. Many apply it at the wrong time of the year. Most lawns need four to six applications of fertilizer per year, and generally the application in the fall is the most important. It is best to fertilize when grass is growing. While many people believe more of something is better than less, this is not the case with fertilizer. Too much fertilizer makes too much plant leaf and won’t allow the roots to grow well. Additionally, an excess of fertilizer can also burn the lawn.

Healthy lawns require routine maintenance such as mowing, fertilizing, and weed and insect control. While the work can be time consuming and takes extreme expertise to do well, the rewards to your family and the environment pay dividends.

Healthy lawns are on most every homeowner’s wish list, but getting your yard in tip-top shape is often easier said than done. To bring your ideas to life and create a dream landscape, it’s best to work with Colbert Lawn Service where “Lawn Care Is Quality Care.”
