Fertilizers Looking for the best fertilizer for grass? Consider the time of year. To keep your lawn healthy, choose grass fertilizer based on the season. For spring, you’ll want to use lawn-starter fertilizer to help achieve new growth. Starter fertilizer works for both grass and sod. In spring, crabgrass weeds are a big nuisance, so if you see it taking over your lawn, invest in a crabgrass killer to prevent them from becoming a larger issue. During summer, a weed and feed fertilizer is a good option to clear out pesky weeds like clover while feeding and strengthening grass. In colder months, the best fertilizer is a winterizer — an ideal fall fertilizer or winter fertilizer designed to promote durability and resilience when temperatures drop.
Most lawn and garden fertilizers come in granular form — these are easy to spread and control as you can see exactly how much you’re using and where you’re dispensing it. There’s a quick-release option, which immediately provides plants with nitrogen and generally lasts three to four weeks. Slow-release options last about eight weeks, depending on rainfall. Liquid fertilizer is fast-acting as plants absorb it quickly through leaves and roots, meaning you’ll need to apply about every two to three weeks.
Looking for something other than fertilizer for your lawn? Fertilizers for veggies, flowers and trees are often referred to as plant food. Plant food is available in granules, liquids and spikes.
Artificial Turf If you’d rather not deal with the maintenance of real grass, a good alternative is artificial grass, known as artificial turf or grass turf. Some homeowners choose to use turf in their entire backyard whereas others just use it for small areas for a specific recreational purpose. Depending on your needs, consider putting green turf or artificial grass for dogs.
