Fertilizer is not a glamorous topic, however, it is what gives us glamorous yards. Find out what is in a bag of it and how to read the ingredients here:
Choosing A Brand
There are many different brands of fertilizer that come with many different components, but the three main essential ingredients are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Nitrogen aids your lawn in color and growth, phosphorus grows healthy roots, and potassium is like a super food for your grass is overall health. When buying it, make sure that these three ingredients are listed, to ensure you are buying a quality product.
Understanding The Season
It is also important to consider the season when buying fertilizer. Typically, the regular kind contains more nitrogen, as the winter kind typically contains more potassium.
Consider the size of your yard and the amount you will need as well when purchasing it, as a larger bag typically cost less per pound. Buying the larger bag might seem unnecessary, but the savings are definitely beneficial.
