What To Know Before Using Liquid Lawn Fertilizer In Your Yard

0 6

There are pros and cons to all types of fertilizers, but there are two instances where you’ll want to reach for the liquid variety over granular or organic: the lawn is new or the lawn is dying. The quick release can bring a fading lawn back to life before it becomes unfixable, while a fresh lawn can benefit from the liquid fertilizer, as the high salt content in granular fertilizer can often prevent new seeds from growing. If your grass is somewhere in the middle and needs a boost, don’t just buy liquid fertilizer and start spraying. You only want to use liquid during warmer months and in the evening, as applying the salty solution to dry ground can prevent it from working properly.

The biggest thing to consider before using liquid lawn fertilizer is your soil. You want to make sure your soil is wet so it can absorb the fertilizer correctly. If your soil is not wet, water it or wait for a rainstorm before going in with the fertilizer. And while you will likely have to apply liquid fertilizer more often than granular, wet soil can at least prevent your lawn from becoming over-fertilized.
