If you want to have a great looking lawn, you need to understand the role soil nutrition has on the health and appearance of your grass. The native soil in the Pembroke area is a relatively thin layer of sandy loam, with not insignificant amounts of gravel, over bedrock.
This is not the ideal growing medium for many of the most popular grass varieties, as it’s not very nutritious. Just to make the situation more complicated, your lawn is continually losing nutrients due to rain, wind-driven erosion, and other natural processes. Even when selecting grass varieties for hardiness, it’s essential to fertilize throughout the year to ensure the lawn has adequate nutrition.
