After the Soil Survey
Once we have conducted the soil survey, we will create a treatment plan which will include a lawn feed requirement invariably with a slow release fertiliser NPK to keep your lawn green all year. A soil test also can provide an N, P and K fertilization recommendation based on the type of grass your lawn is made up of.
What is NPK?
NPK stands for the three main macronutrients in the fertiliser – nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K).
They each have an important role to play in nurturing your lawn. Nitrogen promotes rapid growth and leaf development. Phosphorus is vital for early root growth, it encourages maturity, and stimulates vigour in your lawn. Potassium increases resistance to drought and disease and also plays a part in root growth as well as in stem development.
Why Slow Release?
Slow release fertiliser has several benefits of. They ensure a uniformity of grass growth and are less likely to burn the lawn or other surrounding plants. They won’t need to be applied so frequently as they can last 6 to 8 weeks or longe. Other fertilisers with quick release nitrogen have to be applied much more often.
When is the Fertiliser applied?
Our seasonal treatments ensure that your lawn receives the very best care throughout the year. We usually feed the lawn in the early part of the year:
- Spring – first feed with a fertiliser with something added to clean up any moss
- Early Summer – second feed with a slow release fertiliser to last the next few months, plus weed killer
