Lawn Fertilization Service

Regular lawn fertilization is one of the keys to maintaining a healthy, beautiful lawn. Grass needs three elemental nutrients to nourish and protect it. These nutrients are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Each lawn is different, and the ideal blend of these three nutrients will vary from lawn to lawn. Our lawn fertilization experts have years of experience treating lawns of all shapes and sizes. They will start by determining your grass type, and will also conduct a soil test to determine the pH balance of your soil. This will help them select the best fertilizer for your lawn.

Your Florida Lawn is under constant stress, trying to survive in an often hostile environment which includes heat, humidity, weeds, salt intrusion, poor water retention, invading insects, fungus and other pathogens just to name a few. Our constant tropical climate makes caring for your Florida Lawn a year round task. Constant maintenance is required to ensure proper nutritional balance and to control weeds and insect intrusion. Florida’s climate causes bug season to persist for much of the year. It is important to only apply pesticide applications when insects are present in high numbers and to reduce use when they are not. Although preventive measures should be taken for some types of insects, broad application of pesticides when insects aren’t present can also be damaging. Florida soils have unique nutritional requirements to their northern counterparts. Common store bought fertilizers deliver too much phosphorus, a material most Florida soils gets enough of.

Step 1

Proper Maintenance

The first step to a healthy lawn involves proper mowing, trimming and watering. Done properly, you will be surprised at the improvement in even the poorest of lawns.

Step 2

Soil Conditioning

The sand in Florida’s soil prevents it from retaining or storing nutrients. Consequently, nutrients must be
provided much in the same way as a parent provides nutrients for a child who doesn’t eat the right foods.

Step 3

Disease & Pest Control

Pest invaders attack stems and roots causing damage to the overall health of your lawns and plants.
Quick identification and regular treatments is the only way to prevent disease from spreading.

Common Florida Grasses

Florida Lawns present several challenges depending on the type of grass you have. In Florida, the majority of lawns will have
the following types of turfgrass:

  • St. Augustine
  • Bahiagrass
  • Bermudagrass
  • Zoysiagrass

Ask your FAIRELL representative for a lawn and landscape treating schedule for your particular type of Turfgrass. The
representative can also provide tips on maintenance and proper care.
