About Plant Fertilization
Fertilizing is an important step in maintaining the health of our plants and for keeping invasive plants at bay. In order to grow and thrive, plants need essential nutrients typically found in the soil. But sometimes our soils are depleted—whether due to invasive neighboring plants, poor soil quality, or other factors—and are therefore unable to provide plants the nourishment they need. Fertilizers can fill this void. Comprised of varying proportions of the macro nutrients nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus, as well as other secondary and micro nutrients, they can properly feed your plants to ensure their vitality and survival.
Often overlooked is the need for a pre-emergent fertilization routine, as well. Treatments including fertilizer and herbicide help lay the groundwork for an effective lawn and plant maintenance program throughout the growing season. As this part of plant care is a critical factor in the beauty and upkeep of any landscape, a professional landscape company is probably the best partner in helping you develop a custom plant fertilization process for your yard, from pre-fertilization events through the last application at the end of the season.
A fertilization program tailored to the needs of particular plants and lawn types takes the guesswork out of determining how and when to treat your landscape. The knowledge and experience that a Santa Barbara landscape professional can bring to the table will help avoid common problems such as burned foliage or ineffective applications. With so many types to choose from, fertilizing is often best left to the services of a landscape company—one which can determine not only the right nutrients for your plants, but other important factors to the health of your lawn and garden, such as application rates, the ideal season and weather in which to fertilize, and in what form to apply them.
