The Benefits of Fall Fertilization

scientific plant service fall fertilization service

Fall fertilization can help your lawn stay strong through winter and bounce back next spring.

If you are eager to create a gorgeous lawn that stays healthy season after season, you will want to make sure you schedule fall fertilization. While it may not seem essential to fertilize your lawn in the season before dormancy, that fertilization will help your lawn bounce back better in spring. Your lawn’s roots will store the nutrients applied this season, and take the time to keep growing strong roots that maintain grass health throughout the year. As you prepare for fall fertilization, consult the landscape experts at Scientific Plant Service for the best treatment for your lawn. After you fertilize your lawn, you can prepare to enjoy these benefits. 

Rejuvenate and Repair Your Lawn 

Every lawn, even a healthy one, gets stressed by spring and summer conditions like high heat, drought and heavy foot traffic. When you apply fertilizer, you can strengthen the exhausted grass roots so they can recover faster and better than if fertilizer was not applied. Plus, Scientific Plant Service utilizes POLYON, an extended-release fertilizer that produces a noticeable greening of your lawn that lasts much longer than quick release fertilizers. 

Give Grass Roots a Pre-Winter Nutrient Boost

Lawns crave nutrients, especially as the growing season winds down. Fall fertilizer can help your yard receive the nutrients it needs and grow stronger, deeper roots.. 

Plan for a Strong Start to Spring

During the dormant winter season, your lawn’s top growth comes to a near standstill. Fall fertilization gives your grass nutrients to restore and build the root system. The stronger and healthier roots will thrive in the spring season. Having access to those nutrients at the start of spring will lead to a thicker, healthier lawn. Your grass will then be ahead of schedule for growth come springtime so that you can enjoy a green, healthy lawn as soon as possible. 

Feeding your lawn this fall will give your property the strength, stamina, and support it needs to survive the cold winter months and emerge beautifully in early spring.
