Lawns that are lush, thick and gorgeously green require a little help to stay that way. The key is applying the best lawn fertilizer for your grass. Careful fertilization won't damage soil or soak it with toxic chemicals. Fertilizer feeds soil, giving it extra nutrients and improving its texture and water-retention properties. Follow these steps to grow a thick, smooth carpet of healthy green grass.
You'll see many types of fertilizers in the garden center. The technical details and promises vary from product to product, so bring in your soil test and talk with someone in the Lowe's Garden Center to pick the right fertilizer for your yard.
Nonsynthetic organic fertilizers and soil additives are available at the Lowe's Garden Center and other nurseries. Because these products typically lack ingredients that slow down nutrient release, you may have to apply them more frequently. As with synthetic products, always apply properly and with caution.
