A good fertiliser can make the difference between a decidedly substandard lawn and one that looks lush and lavish all summer. However, it’s important that when you come to pick the fertiliser that you’ll use on your lawn you choose the one that’s best suited to your lawn’s needs, as the wrong fertiliser could even end up doing more bad than good.
In a good fertiliser, you’ll want to have a good look at the ingredients to make sure three key ingredients are present. These important additions, in both bagged or liquid fertiliser, are nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus.
Nitrogen is important for your lawn as it results in a thick, healthy layer of green grass. However, too high a ratio could end up burning your lawn, so opt for a slow release nitrogen fertiliser for best results. Potassium is a powerful ally when it comes to root development, ensuring your lawn has a stable foundation to depend on. Phosphorus promotes root growth, and is great for lawns when combined with potassium.
Alongside these three ingredients, your fertiliser should also include a good combination of nutrients that aids in the growth of healthy, lush grass. If you’re still not sure about finding the right fertiliser on your own, you can always get further help from a turf supplier in Melbourne.
