Our Method of Dispersing Fertilizer & When Ongoing Treatments Take Place

We apply our fertilizer at the same time as your weed control. This method is a quick way of both protecting and enhancing your lawn. At A+ Lawn & Landscape, our spray system creates droplets that cling to your lawn to evenly spread weed control, while also spreading our granular fertilizer. This method ensures the fertilizer is evenly dispersed on your property.

Our applications typically start in early spring, around late March or early April, and go through October, with a treatment every 5-7 weeks. Ongoing treatments are vital to the health and continuity of your lawn's growth.


How Fertilizer Is Formulated & The Requirements of Newly Established Lawns

Most standard fertilizers offer a ratio of 1-0-1 of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK), and come in options such as slow-release and fast-release fertilizers. Each lawn requires a different formulation of nutrients, which is where soil testing can greatly benefit how your lawn is treated on an annual basis.

Cool-season grasses like the types we have in central Iowa typically thrive under slow-release nitrogen-based fertilizers.

Newly established lawns require a different mix of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Starter fertilizer is always used for the initial application on newly planted seeds or new sod. This fertilizer is typically phosphorus-based to promote sprouting and germination of the new seedlings. After this initial application, standard fertilizer is used going forward.

Healthy lawns are able to bounce back quicker from insect infestation or diseases and are even able to resist these afflictions easier than an untreated lawn. Your grass will be able to grow stronger roots with the help of the added nutrients in the soil
