In season Denver lawn fertilization promotes a lush turf with fewer weeds and less work. Early spring and late fall fertilization has a different goal, building roots, a foundation of a thrilling lawn experience.

Fall Lawn Fertilization

Tree service Denver lawn fertilization will put nutrients deep into the root zone. By doing this the grass will develop strong roots that allow the grass to be more lush and robust all summer long.

For both scenarios the idea is to put the application where it will have the greatest effect.

Dealing with Denver Yards

Lawn fertilization in Denver also requires the right blend of nutrients to be effective. The right fertilization for Cleveland or Chicago will burn out grass in Denver.  You may have seen fertilizer bags marked with a three digital code, like 10-10-10 for example.

The first number represents the amount of nitrogen available in the mixture, the second the available phosphate, and the last is potash.

“Nitrogen is associated with color, phosphorous with flowering, and potassium with growth,” says Dennis Lukaszewski, urban gardens director for the University of Wisconsin-Extension.

Most Denver lawns work best when a low nitrogen fertilizer is applied, especially to cool-season growers such as Kentucky bluegrass. Our lawn service experts have the experience and knowledge to properly diagnose and then treat your lawn with just the right fertilizer mixture.

We also offer a turf feeding additive called Revive. We are excited about it because it’s an organic application that will green up lawns. Revive is formulated with a wetting agent, to combat lawns that don’t properly absorb water.

This mid-season option will green up your turf and is healthy for lawns and for people and pets.

Lawn Fertilizer Safety

Long time customers may be aware that we’ve been following the story about urea based fertilizers. We are always striving to offer the safest products on the market. While organic fertilizers and greening agents like Revive are important, more common sense options to prevent over-fertilization and over-spraying begin with proper training of ArborScape lawn technicians.

Much planning goes into training techs how to apply lawn fertilization.  We use a granular fertilizer that quickly enters the soil once activated by water. In addition, during the late season lawn service rounds, we try to avoid over-fertilization which can promote weeds instead of true grass. Please, please ask your tech if you have any concerns about safety or give us a call.

Combine early season fertilization with an aeration and your fertilizer will more easily mix in and have a greater effect.
