The Best Lawn & Garden Fertilizers You Can Buy
Fertilizers come in both natural and synthetic forms and are used to supply growing plants, grasses and trees with essential nutrients. We carry professional grade liquid and granular fertilizers that are designed to stimulate healthy growth in lawns and gardens. We also carry fertilizer sprayers and spreaders to help you get the job done right.
When Is the Best Time to Fertilize Your Lawn?
A good lawn fertilizer schedule should consist of multiple treatments per year. Knowing when to fertilize your lawn (which seasons) depends on what kind of grass you have, warm season or cool season grass.
How to Fertilize Your Lawn
It is recommended with almost any fertilizer to mow your lawn before treating it. Don’t wait more than a few days after mowing your lawn to apply the fertilizer. If your lawn is new, you’ll want to wait until you’ve mowed it at least a few times before applying the first treatment of lawn fertilizers.
Liquid vs. Granular Fertilizer
Knowing what fertilizer to use depends on several factors. See the pros and cons of the two main types of fertilizer below:
Applying Granular Fertilizers
If you’re using a granular fertilizer you’ll need to wet down your lawn (after it’s been mowed) thoroughly with the hose. Right after it rains, or in the early morning hours when there is still dew on the grass are also good times to apply granular fertilizers. With granular fertilizers it’s important to make sure your lawn is wet enough before, and within 24 hours after, the treatment so the granules can properly dissolve into the grass roots and won’t burn your lawn.
To spread the granular fertilizer evenly, you’ll need a spreader. Make sure to check the directions of the fertilizer you are using to know which number setting to adjust your spreader to.
Applying Liquid Fertilizers
Many people like to use liquid fertilizers because they are easy to apply, and work quickly. Applying them is simply a matter of using a liquid container that hooks up to your hose. Make sure to spray evenly.
See our sprayers page for more information.
Liquid Fertilizer Mixture Ratio
Most of the liquid fertilizers we sell come in 2.5 gallon jugs. Generally speaking, the yield is about 1,000 square feet of coverage for every 22 ounces of fertilizer. Since 2.5 US gallons = 320 US fluid ounces, a 2.5 gallon jug would yield roughly 14,500 square feet of coverage (320 / 22 = 14.5 x 1,000 = 14,500 square ft.). The average .25 acre lot is about 10,000 square feet.
