Fertilizer is one of the most expensive products in a lawn care program. Some lawn care services try to be cost completive by using cheap fertilizers. High quality fertilizers can cost 2 or 3 times more and have significant advantages over cheap, low grade fertilizers. 

Low cost fertilizers release nitrogen quickly which is partially taken up by the lawn. What isn't taken up is wasted and is more prone to nitrogen run-off or leaching into your ground water supply. If not properly water in after application these fertilizers will burn your lawn causing orange brown spots to appear all over your lawn. Low grade fertilizers can also burn your annual flowers or ornamental shrubs. 

Cheap fertilizers promote rapid growth of the lawn. The inordinate amount of grass growth can cause more insect and disease infestations, additional water requirements, and excessive grass clippings. The end result is more money actually spent for cheap fertilizers and a lawn that is greenish brown for 2-3 days after each mowing because all the green growth was mowed out of the lawn due to the rapid growth of lawn.

Tree and Horticultural Management Services uses high quality fertilizers in our lawn care programs. The benefits of high quality slow release fertilizers are:

  • No growth surge which eliminates the need to bag clippings or double cut lawn.
  • No worries about mowing the green out of your lawn with regularly scheduled mowings.
  • Greatly reduces the potential of nitrogen runoff or leaching into ground water. Best option for the local environment.
  • Longer slow release of nitrogen that provides a even and consistent dark green lawn with no lime green periods between fertilizer applications.
  • Lawn uses less water.
  • Lawn less prone to insect and disease problems.
  • Lawn is healthier due to the form of nitrogen available to the turfgrass which promotes a thicker, tighter lawn.
  • Very low burn potential. So no orange areas in lawn due to fertilizer not being watered in effectively. No ornamental shrub or annual flowers damaged by fertilizer.
