Fertilizing your lawn is essential to maintaining its health and beauty, but trying to do it yourself is a bad idea! After all, you could apply too much fertilizer and damage your lawn or apply too little and not see any results. There are a few grass types in Nebraska, and each has different needs. This means that a specific fertilizer may be better suited for yours than others, so you could run the risk of using the wrong one when trying to apply the treatments on your own. Similarly, there are certain times of the year your grass needs to be fertilized, but if you don't know when that is, you could potentially apply it at the wrong time. Fortunately, your local lawn care professional knows how much to apply, what type of fertilizer your grass needs, and when/how many times it'll need to be applied throughout the year.

You could apply too much or too little fertilizer.

Fertilizer is a great way to improve the health and appearance of your lawn, but there can be too much of a good thing. If you use too much when applying the treatments yourself, you could end up causing fertilizer burn and damaging your lawn. Fertilizer burn happens when it receives too much of the product, which can cause your grass to turn yellow, dry up, or even die.

On the other hand, it’s possible you could use too little fertilizer when treating your own lawn. When this happens, the grass won't receive enough of the nutrients it needs to grow strong and healthy, so you won’t end up seeing any results. Fortunately, professionals will know exactly how much fertilizer needs to be administered for your grass to thrive.

You may use the wrong type of fertilizer for your grass type.

There are a few kinds of grasses here in Nebraska, and not all of them require the same fertilization treatments. Most fertilizers contain three key nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. However, not every type of grass needs the same amount of these nutrients. If you choose the wrong one with an improper balance of nutrients, you’ll end up wasting time and money on an ineffective treatment. Professionals are knowledgeable about the various grass types in your area and which fertilizer to use, so they’ll be able to give your turf what it needs to produce the best results.

You might not apply the fertilizer at the right times of the year.

It may seem trivial, but there are specific times of the year when you should fertilize your lawn. Your grass will have different needs as each season comes and goes, and because of this, you run the risk of applying the fertilizer at the wrong time of year when doing it yourself. Your local lawn care professional knows about the kind of grass on your lawn, and they’ll know exactly when and how many times it needs to be fertilized throughout the year. With the help of a professional, your lawn will get everything it needs to thrive.

An ideal fertilization schedule includes treatments during the spring, summer, and fall.
