A beautiful, landscaped garden can seem like a little piece of heaven. Achieving this, however, isn’t always easy and may require utilizing fertilizer. Knowing exactly what the right amount of fertilizer to use is a tricky subject. If the right amount isn’t used, the plants suffer and in turn the garden is going to suffer.
Arming yourself with information is the key to utilizing fertilizer and a good lawn. To start off with, it is important that you test your soil. Most garden centers have the tools required to carry this out. A simple test will reveal the quality and grade of fertilizer your garden would need. Of course, if the results leave you confused then it would be relatively easier to contact a landscaper to sort things out.
Once you have done this, there are a few simple guidelines to follow, which not only ensure that your garden thrives but also that you get the best use out of your fertilizer.
