Is Fertilizing Your Lawn Necessary?

Whether or not you need to fertilize your lawn depends on several factors. For the most part, Florida lawns can benefit from fertilizer to keep grass exceptionally green and lush. It is important that if you fertilize that you use the right fertilizer mix for your type of turf, as well as using the fertilizer at the right time of the year.

If you have rich soil with lots of nutrients, you may not need to worry about fertilizing. When you get your sod installed, talk to the professionals working on your lawn about whether or not they believe you will need to fertilize based on your turf type and soil type.

If you do need to fertilize your lawn to give it its best look, you’ll want to make sure that you are doing so during the grass’s usual growing season. For Floratam St. Augustine grass, which is one of the most popular in the area, you want to use a balanced time-release fertilizer during the growing months, usually starting mid-February after the last frost.

Other turfs may vary somewhat as to what type of fertilizer they require for maintenance. If you hire a professional and experienced sod company to provide and install your sod, they will be able to give you  all of the necessary information for how to best maintain your lawn for the best results.
