Like most of everything we own and love, regular maintenance is the key to long-lasting success. I’ve personally witnessed many homeowners completely burn their grass by either applying too much fertilizer, applying their fertilizer at the wrong times, and using the wrong ratios not knowing what proper nutrients are needed for success. A simple soil test can easily determine what is needed for your grass to thrive all season long. Some questions that pop up regularly are (Do I really need to fertilize my lawn?) – ( What do the numbers represent on the fertilizer bags?) – ( Why don’t the numbers on the bag add up to 100%? ) and ( Do I need to test my soil before adding fertilizer? ) Well, let me break it all down for you all as simple as I can.
2. What do the numbers on the bags represent? (NPK)
The numbers represent the % of each nutrient. For example : 31/00/03 represents 31% Nitrogen – 0% Phosphorus – 3% Potassium
