Lawn Fertilization Service Bakersfield, CA
What could be simpler than fertilization? Everyone knows it's what makes the difference between OK plants and thriving plants so it stands to reason that it will transform your scrubby grass into a rich lush lawn. And to a certain extent that is true. Treat your lawn to a mix of water and fertilizer and it will look better but to really get the most from fertilizing you need to know what grass you have, what your soil is like, and what mix or ingredients of fertilizer will serve it best. Then there's the question of when and how often. Starting to sound a bit more complex? Well then make it all simple by talking to the fertilizer folk at Bakersfield Lawn Pros.
Grass is grass right? Wrong. There are many types of grass used to make lawns work and they don't all have the same needs when it comes to nutrition. Some grass species are even a weed if they're implanting themselves on a lawn that consists mostly of another grass. On the other hand if there's a second grass species thriving in an area meant for another there may need to be a rethink about what grass your lawn should be. In any case the first step is to have Bakersfield Lawn Pros come and identify just what kind of grass we're talking about.
The next stage in a truly professional fertilization plan is to analyze the soil to find out factors like its pH value and the nutrients it may already be rich in as well as those, obviously, that it could do with a little help with. Soil 'health' is a mixture of factors including chemical, physical, and biological and the results of that analysis are essential when choosing the right fertilizer for any given soil. It's not just about nitrate, nitrogen, or phosphorous levels but also factors such as the soil's granularity, friability, and the drainage conditions.
The best fertilization isn't just from spraying on chemicals and standing back (although some of the chemical manufacturers would like us to think so). Instead at Bakersfield Lawn Pros we're big believers in slow release fertilization that releases the nutrients of the fertilizer steadily over time to try and coincide with the growth phases of your grass.
Done properly fertilization isn't just a one off: it's a year round process of nourishing your soil to nourish your grass. Talk to Bakersfield Lawn Pros about the type of soil you have, the grass growing on it (and whether that's the right grass) and the nutritional needs we believe it will have. Then we will draw up a tailored application schedule for the forthcoming year to ensure that your lawn is the best it can be, and the envy of all the neighbors. Rich lush lawn is coming your way, if you feed it right, and nurture it like the live thing it is. Let Bakersfield Lawn Pros show you how and do the hard work for you.
