Is fertilizer really necessary?

Just like your garden, trees, shrubs and flowers, grass is a plant that needs nutrients. Plants require a variety of nutrients and elements for their growth and development. These elements are provided by fertilizers and organic matter as it decomposes in the soil. Among these elements, nitrogen (N) and potassium (K) are considered the most important. Secondary (e.g.: calcium) and minor elements (or trace elements e.g. iron) are also found in fertilizers.

Balanced fertilization helps produce dense, vibrant and healthy grass. This makes your lawn more resistant to harmful organisms (disease, insect pests and weeds).
