Many of the nutrients required for turf growth and development are derived from either soil or fertilizers. These include three macronutrients – nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) – needed by turfgrass in relativley large quantities and numerous secondary and micronutrients, which are required in lesser quantities.
Nitrogen – Important for above-ground growth, color and density and to fight off weeds and pests. Nitrogen is required by turfgreass in greater quantities than all other nutrients.
Phosphorus – Used to establish and grow strong roots.
Potassium – Helps turf withstand stress caused by disease, drought, wear-and-tear and cold temperatures.
When to Fertilize?
Generally speaking, lawns should be fertilized twice per year. For lawns to have the best possible appearance, four to five applications a year may be required. A lawn should only be fertilized when it is activley growing. In the pacific north west, we aim to fertilize our lawns in the spring, summer and fall.
