Lawn Nutrients

Just as plants require nutrients in order to grow strong and healthy root systems, so does grass and turf in order to become luscious and green.

The healthier your lawn is, the better it will grow and will be able to deal with hot and dry conditions, weeds, and general wear and tear.

Lawns that are discoloured, grow slowly or have invading weeds or pest problems, and show signs of being in a poor condition. They require an added boost of nutrients to help improve their health.

The lawn nutrients that are required for turf grass can be obtained naturally from the soil. Primarily, these are nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous. A pH test will determine the level of nutrients in your lawn and whether it has an excess or deficiency in one or more type of element. This can then be rectified by applying a fertiliser such as a nitrogen fertiliser or an iron supplement. Applying nitrogen to the lawn will help to create a healthy, vigorous lawn with quick growth and development. Having excessive nitrogen will cause the root growth to slow and open up the lawn, making it susceptible to weeds and disease.

Keep an eye on your lawn and check for any changes in its appearance or growth. There may be some lawn nutrients that could and should be added to increase growth and nutrition.
