Why is lawn fertilization important?
Fertilizing supplies nutrients needed during the high demands of the growing season. Other reasons why you might want to fertilize your lawn:
A vigorous and healthy lawn resists weeds.
Proper nutrition protects your grass from pest infestations and helps it recover should one occur.
A thriving lawn is more resilient to traffic.
Proper pH is maintained in your soil.
Nitrogen is supplied for leaf and shoot growth and a deep green color.
Phosphorous is provided for establishing seedlings and root growth.
Potassium is given for greater tolerance to hot and cold weather and against wear.
An application of fertilizer in the fall prepares your lawn for winter and speeds its recovery in the spring.
Fertilizing establishes new lawns and maintains established lawns.

With all of the product choices available to help your lawn be thick, rich and green, why would you choose Turf? Turf is a series of applications uniquely formulated to address the broad range of nutritional needs your lawn requires. Depending on your location and conditions, the number of applications may vary.
Many fertilizers are made of high salt, high chloride chemicals. Over time, they build up in the soil, gradually making the soil too toxic for millions of healthy microbes and earthworms to live. When the necessary bacteria and fungi die, the soil gradually gets harder and harder. Soil becomes so compact that grass roots are not strong enough to grow deep. The lawn becomes more fragile, subject to disease and drought.
It is organic
Some applications are totally organic, others have ingredients that are not toxic, but are not organic. Small amounts of additives contribute to the broad nutritional needs required by your lawn. The overwhelming composition of “Turf” = Soil Nutrition is as natural as the earth, untouched by chemicals.
Compost is a great source of nutritional components for turf grasses. After an extensive period of “aging” ranging from one year to thousands of years, the organic matter is finally “broken down” into easily digestible components, ready to nourish the thousands of varieties of micro-organisms that the lawn requires to truly flourish.
A healthy lawn grows out of soil that is full of life. Micro-organisms work their way down into the soil, loosening the soil particles, making passages for rain and oxygen (the roots of grass plants have to breathe, too!) to penetrate deeper into the earth. These microscopic miners feed on dead roots, stems and grass blades and ultimately become part of the food chain for larger creatures, like earthworms. A lawn without earthworms is a lawn that’s in trouble. It tells you that there is very little life in the soil.
Timing is important
Grass plants go through an annual life cycle. The “Turf” = Soil Nutrition Program is designed to support that life cycle throughout the year, each application designed to address the particular nutritional and biological needs as they change during the season.
