Fertilizer In Kansas City: Do’s & Don’ts

Picture this: You are a homeowner in Kansas City and the weather is fluctuating all the time. You are mowing your lawn on a regular basis, but you are having a hard time keeping it green. I have the solution for you. This is not a quick fix, but will change your lawn for the better over time. Fertilizer in Kansas City is just what you need. Let’s explore the do’s and don’ts of starting a fertilizer program. 

Do:

Do a fertilizer program every year. Like stated before, the weather is unpredictable in the midwest and fertilizer is fuel for your lawn to survive it. Just picking and choosing when to do a treatment will not improve your lawn. We recommend 7 treatments a year combined with regular mowing and cleanups for a healthy lawn.

We get asked if someone should do fertilizer treatments on their own or hire a professional. There are self apply treatments. A professional will have a certification to apply chemicals in your area and has gone through training to do that. Lastly, spot spray for weeds with each application. It is always best to consult a professional when it comes to your lawn’s health. 

Don’t: 

The number one thing not to do is to over apply the chemicals. This is commonly done when homeowners apply their own applications. Fertilizer in Kansas City is only helpful when the right balance and amount of chemicals is applied. A professional will ensure this does not happen.

Do not pick and choose which applications to apply. The 7 seven treatments are recommended throughout the year. Each one is a different chemical combination to keep your lawn healthy in the weather element it’s applied in. This is important to not over or under apply throughout the year.

Fertilizer in Kansas City is not an easy task to just jump into. As a result, your lawn could burn or become malnourished. Always consult a professional. For instance, in the long run it will be cheaper to hire a certified applicator than potentially have to recover the lawn later from a mistake.
