Signs Your Lawn Needs Fertilizer
If you’re invested in the care of your lawn, you know that lawn fertilization is a critical part of the process. What you might wonder, though, is how to tell when your lawn needs fertilization. Here are a few surefire signs:
- Weed invasion. If your lawn is lacking nitrogen, it may become more susceptible to invasion by weeds and other invasive species.
- Fairy rings. Fairy rings are the patches of grass you’ll start to see, which contain areas of dead or light-colored grass in the middle. If you start to see these, you’ll want to aerate the soil manually and fertilize afterward.
- Rust. Grass can rust, which will kill off a large segment of your lawn. Reddish-brown colors at the roots of your grass indicate a need for fertilizer.
