In this post, we discuss the main benefits of lawn fertilization so that you can understand how regular and well-planned fertilization can help transform your lawn beyond expectations.
Some people are almost obsessive about their lawns, working hard to maintain a lawn care program, fight weeds, and mowing their lawn with precision.
Others take a more “let nature take it’s course” kind of view of their lawn. They may try and care for their lawn by keeping it clean and mowed but don’t take any extra steps such as doing lawn fertilization.

There are many benefits to fertilizing your lawn that you can’t necessarily put a price on but will provide you with happiness.
Having your kids playing on your healthy lawn provides happiness for you and for them. Your properly fertilized lawn will also be able to recover from play and heavy usage much more easily.
Walking across your healthy lawn during the summer with bare feet through the grass, that’s a priceless feeling that you can only get a few times a year and that you can only get from an extremely healthy lawn.
There are things you can put a price on though. Ask any realtor if a healthy, thick lawn adds value to a home. Ask them how much a patchy, weed-filled lawn takes off from the price of a home. They can tell you exactly which home will sell faster and for more money.
The maintenance and curb appeal of your property makes a big difference. It’s not even just your home! Well maintained lawns help make your neighbors home values go up as well.
