What’s The Secret to a Great Looking Lawn? Nutrition

Everyone loves a great looking lawn, but lush, verdant grass doesn’t just happen. If you’ve been wondering why your lawn is looking a little sad while other Abington area yards are gorgeous and green, the secret could very well be nutrition.

Your Lawn Needs A Healthy Diet, Just Like You Do

What happens to a person who eats nothing but junk food and candy? After a while, their physical health begins to suffer. So does their appearance. If you’ve ever found yourself avoid certain foods because they make your skin break out or your stomach hurt, you’ve experienced the connection between poor nutrition and negative outcomes.  And if you’ve made a point of eating clean and healthy, you’ve probably noticed how good you feel. Good nutrition leads to better outcomes.

The same is true for your lawn. Grass is a living organism. Just like you, it needs certain things to stay alive. In addition to sunlight and an adequate supply of water, grass draws its nutrition from the soil. The soil in Abington is like a lot of soils throughout Massachusetts: while it’s certainly robust enough to keep native species hanging in there, it benefits from nutritional support to help keep Kentucky Bluegrass, Ryegrass, Fescue, and other common lawn grasses thriving.

Nutritional support for lawns means fertilizer. Fertilizing lawns is actually surprisingly complicated. You don’t want to just grab any random bag of fertilizer from the garden center and strew it all over your lawn: if that particular fertilizer doesn’t contain the right  mix of nutrients and chemicals you can wind up doing more harm than good.

Let us put our expertise to work for you, so you don’t have to go through the frustrating, expensive trial and error process.
