3 tips for fertilizing your turf field

Manual fertilizing of the lawn in back yard in spring time

Some people think that if you apply fertilizer once or twice a year to your turf field, that’s enough work. This is a common error in thinking that could jeopardize the health of your turfgrass. In fact, fertilizing hastily or over-fertilizing can burn out your lawn and harm your turfgrass maintenance strategy.

Here are some tips to make fertilizing your turf field easier

  1. Fertilize Multiple Times Per Year
  2. Always Use A Spreader
  3. Make Sure You Use the Optimal Mix.

Not all fertilizer is created equally. Remember that finding the optimal nutrient mix for the type and usage of your grass is key to healthy turf all year round.

The key for proper turf management is to try to be as precise as possible, despite all the factors that can change your fertilizing needs. For more information, contact the Columbia SC turf experts at Modern Turf.
