Time to Fertilize for Fall – Landscaping & Lawn Care

The long, hot summer is finally over. As your lawn recovers, it could use a little help from you. Fall is time to fertilize and nitrogen will encourage blade growth…that’s the first of the three numbers on the bag of fertilizer. So buy a bag of fertilizer with a higher first number (like a 20-8-8) for fertilizing in the fall. Around Halloween you’ll want to apply fertilizer again, but this time select a bag with a higher middle number (like 13-25-12). The middle number is phosphorus and it stimulates root growth, which will help your lawn survive winter and green-up more quickly in the spring. Your perennials will enjoy a shot of a high-phosphorus fertilizer now and your trees could use fertilizer with a high nitrogen content. If you have any questions about the best way to care for your landscaping & lawn, give us a call here at Blass Residential Services. We can do that!
