It’s not over yet! Winterization fertilizer that is specially blended to promote fall root development helps roots store water and food for winter survival and strong root development the following year.


With all the options in the local home and garden stores, it’s easy to be tempted to fertilize your lawn yourself. The advertisements for those fertilizers make it look easy, right? While you may have some results from tearing open a bag of any old fertilizer and spreading it around your yard, it probably won’t be very consistent. There’s actually a lot of science that goes into a professional lawn fertilization schedule and it’s probably best to leave that science to a professional.

Additionally, the amount of time, effort, and even cost you can save by hiring a professional company can often outweigh the “savings” of doing it yourself. Not all lawn fertilizer companies are the same, so be sure to consider these things:

Lawn Care FAQs

According to the American Time Use Survey, Americans (on average) spend about 70 hours per year on lawn care. We’re not sure about your life but that extra 70 hours could be used very well with your family, your friends, your hobbies, and, well, really anything but maintaining your lawn.

Above and beyond the time spent is the effort that it takes to know and understand the needs of your lawn. Without the background education that a professional has, there will be extra effort in research and going to the store to get the fertilizer itself. A company that has the experience in professional lawn fertilization services will know what to look for in a distressed lawn, what fertilizer to use, how to properly apply and when to apply it based on where you live, this time of year’s climate, and the type of soil in your yard.

The average fertilizer bag costs between $40 and $60. If you purchase the wrong kind and have to repurchase a different formula, you will eat that cost. Additionally, heaven forbid, you use one that damages your lawn further then it will cost even more to bring it back to its original state only to have to spend more to make it healthier again. A professional lawn company will know exactly what to do to make your lawn its healthiest and will do it right the first time. Additionally, the average cost for a professional company to fertilize your lawn is about the price of a bag of name-brand fertilizer. We use a higher grade and better quality of chemicals, which we buy in bulk for the cost savings, and can pass those savings on to you INCLUDING our professional knowledge and labor at one fixed cost with your contract.

As mentioned above, we have a set schedule that has a history of success to back it up. We take into account the “nitrogen release rate”, use controlled-release fertilizers to provide a steady, controlled release after the initial quick-release of nitrogen to quickly “green up” your yard. This controlled release gradually balances the nutrients over the soil for a period of approximately 8 weeks thus leaving a consistent and constant supply of nitrogen and nutrients for the grass.

There are a variety of mixtures and a professional lawn company knows how to properly select the mix that is best for your lawn. There are three major nutrients in fertilizer (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) and each play an important role in a lush and healthy lawn.

  • Nitrogen – like mentioned before, this is what makes the grass appear lush and green
  • Phosphorus – for root grown stimulation
  • Potassium – for increased tolerance of disease and drought

If doing it yourself, you would have to figure out the square footage of your lawn and do some math to figure out how many bags you would need for your lawn. With a professional company, they would do all that math for you.

Unlike when doing it yourself, hiring a professional lawn maintenance service comes with a satisfaction guarantee. We provide the service and, if it’s not right, we will fix it. That doesn’t happen with your local home and garden store because when you buy the fertilizer, you’re taking the accountability that it’s going to work.

Like with anything, you have to weigh the benefits, the risks, and the cost of doing it yourself vs hiring a professional lawn service company. You know which side of the scale that we’re on but really, just ask yourself this:

Would you rather: a) spend your weekends fertilizing and keeping up with lawn maintenance or b) hire a professional lawn service and spend your time doing what matters most, spending time with your friends and family?
