Fertilizer is the key to healthy lawns and plants. We'll walk you through the basics.
Plants in Casper, Wyoming have it a little difficult! Living in the high mountain desert like we do, water can be scarce and the temperatures can be extreme. Your lawn and plants need food and nutrients to keep them healthy and strong and that's what fertilizer is... vital food and nutrients for your plants. When you fertilize you are essentially feeding your plants.
How Often Should I Fertilize?
We recommend fertilizer for your lawn 3-4 times a year in early spring, late spring, summer and fall.
What Else Should I Know?
If you're planning on doing your own fertilizer application you may want to keep the following suggests in mind:
When fertilizing your lawn, its important to evenly spread out the mixture. You can get liquid fertilizer or fertilizer pellets. If you go the pellet route you will also need a spreader to help you lay out the pellets properly. With either method it's crucial that you refrain from over fertilizing. Too much fertilizer is bad for plants, can seep into groundwater and also bad on your pocketbook. There is no need to fertilize more than 4 times a year and you should make sure to spread out your fertilizer and to not over-fertilize.
