Why You Should Hire a Professional For Lawn Fertilizing
At Blades of Steel Landscaping, we recommend applying fertilizers at specific times throughout the year. While fertilizer from your local gardening center is better than nothing, our professionals use several different types of high-quality fertilizers tailored specifically for the needs of your lawn during the time of year it’s applied.
Hiring a professional to fertilize your lawn benefits you in several ways, keeping you from the following mistakes:
- Using the wrong kind of fertilizer for your lawn
- Uneven distribution of lawn fertilizer
- Applying too much fertilizer
- Applying fertilizer at the wrong time
Our lawn care professionals are here to help you maintain the health and beauty of your lawn with our fertilization program, eliminating the possibility of the above mistakes.
The lawn care experts at Blades of Steel Landscaping typically come out to fertilize your grass about five times during the year. Treatments generally include:
The first treatment of the year uses a slow-release fertilizer with nutrients like potassium and nitrogen balanced and designed to strengthen your grass at the root level. This is often combined with a weed control treatment to prevent weeds from even starting to grow.
The next treatment uses our balanced slow-release fertilizer to continue strengthening your grass. We may also spot-treat weeds and apply weed control.
In the summer, we use a low-nitrogen fertilizer so that your grass gets the nutrients it needs to feed it during the hot summer months.
This fertilization treatment addresses the roots of your grass, promoting healthy development to prepare for winter.
The last fertilizer treatment of the year prepares your lawn to go dormant during the winter while nourishing to increase the speed that it greens up in the spring.

What is a good fertilizer schedule?
The ideal fertilizer schedule typically includes four to six applications per year. We tailor each application to address the needs of your grass during that season. You may also choose to add preventative weed treatments to the service at any time.
When should you fertilize your soil?
We advise fertilizing your soil in early spring, early summer, summer, early fall, and late fall. Each application ensures that your grass receives the nutrients it needs at that time, maximizing its vitality and strength.
How long should you fertilize before planting?
Fertilize right before planting new flowers, herbs, and other in-ground plants. Then fertilize again when the plants reach their peak growing cycle, such as when it begins leafing or flowering.
Does fertilizer expire?
Most fertilizers do not have an expiration date and do not expire when stored correctly. If your fertilizer collects moisture, it could grow bacteria and mold. As a general rule of thumb, dispose of liquid fertilizer after ten years.
