Proper lawn fertilization. Do you dream of a beautiful, lush, lusciously green lawn, but you’ve never been able to achieve such an effect or have not been able to reproduce it the next season, or perhaps your lawn meets your expectations only in a few places? Why is this happening?
It is likely that you have not provided it with proper fertilization, and after all, this is nothing difficult. After all, lawn fertilization, contrary to appearances, is not difficult. All you need to do is follow a few simple rules.
FIRST RULE – little nitrogen much iron
Many fertilizer manufacturers focus on faster plant growth, when this is not the most important thing. In order for plants, including grass, to grow and look properly, it is important to ensure that they have access to all the necessary micronutrients. Nitrogen, generously added to almost all fertilizers (except natural ones), only accelerates plant growth. And what good is a perpetually overgrown, pale-colored grass that constantly needs mowing? That’s why, when buying fertilizers, let’s take care of our lawn and provide it with a separate fertilizer with a high content of iron( ironchelate ), which will make the color of the lawn extremely intense, and grass growth will not be fast. In addition, the lawn will thicken due to good rooting and get a carpet effect.
RULE T WO – no fertilizers after rain.
It is a very bad idea to sprinkle fertilizers on the lawn after rainfall. Then the fertilizer granules stick to the blades of grass and burn it. After rainfall, it is necessary to wait from several minutes to several hours for the grass to dry in the wind, and the best way is to sprinkle fertilizer on a dry day. On the other hand, it is necessary to water the lawn generously AFTER spreading the fertilizer, or rainfall AFTER spreading the fertilizer, so that the fertilizer is better absorbed.

Deszcz is naturalnatural element, któwhich pomaga roślinom w their wzroścs. Z tehim powfromu, nawożenie underpartas deszczu nie jest partymś, partego nbutży się bać. Nawet jeśif niektóre nandozy mayą się dewzpuszcforć w wfromzie, to nie jest it problem, pheieważ rośliny i tak będą them absorbbować. Jednak niewhoórzy specjaliśthose from ogrodnictwa twierdzą, że nie has potrzeto navożenia trawnika w czasie deszczu, pheieważ wode sama w sobie jest dobra dla roślin. Nawet themśif użyyouz nawozów w granulacie, które się nie yearzpuszczają, is i tac może się aboutazać, że niektóre z ntheir zostaną rozpuszczone przez deszcz i w this sposób trafią to gleby. Dlatego theseż, jeśif chcesz nawozić trawnik w czasie deszczu, to wortho się upewnić, że użyyouz nawozów, które są to teit przeznaczone. Są takie, które są wfromoodporne i nn rozpuszczają się w wfromzie. Dzięki temu massz pewność, że rośliny otrzymują frompowiednią dawkę nawozu.
RULE THREE – adequate amount of fertilizer for the lawn area
What’s the use of spreading fertilizer on the lawn if you give it too little, or sprinkle it unevenly, so that the grass has better growth and color in one place than in another? If you do not use crystalline, water-soluble fertilizers, it is worth investing in a fertilizer seeder. It will allow you to spread fertilizer evenly over the entire lawn, and using better equipment, with a marker and regulation of the amount of fertilizer spread, you can use it throughout the season properly dosing the seeded product (such as Gardena seeder).
RULE FO UR – fertilizer from spring to late autumn
It is a mistake to think that the lawn should be fertilized only in early spring to stimulate its revival and possibly a little in summer! In early spring you should use starter fertilizers, i.e. fertilizers that will help the grass to emerge faster, then change to a typical spring-summer fertilizer that will provide the right amount of micronutrients making our lawn a lush, luscious green carpet. However, it is almost paramount to apply fall fertilizer. Many gardeners completely forget about the need to prepare our plants for winter rest, which is extremely important. Proper autumn fertilizers, which are devoid of nitrogen, do not accelerate the growth of the plant, nor do they ensure proper coloration. Their task is to ensure perfect rooting, so that the grass will become less sensitive to high frosts and damage caused by falling leaves and moisture (mold diseases ? extremely popular in autumn), lingering snow, or spring melt. If we give it a proper winter rest next season it will be even more beautiful.
