The Benefits of Lawn Fertilization

The secret is out - feeding your lawn is the fastest, surest way to a lush, barefoot-worthy lawn.

Truth be told, there's one simple secret to making the most of your lawn without a lot of hassle: regular feedings, or lawn fertilization. Yep. Nourishing your lawn two to four times a year with ScottsĀ® Turf BuilderĀ® Lawn Food can turn a so-so lawn into a kick-off-your-shoes lawn the whole family can enjoy.Letā€™s dig into the infamous question of ā€œWhat does grass fertilizer do?ā€

#1 Provides Nutrients for Your Lawn

Grass fertilization provides the nutrients your lawn needs to look its best and withstand the stresses of weeds, heat, drought and family activity. Grass is living, breathing nature right outside your door. And like all living plants, it needs food and water. While you and Mother Nature can easily take care of the watering, grass simply cannot thrive without proper nutrients. That's where regular feedings come in.

#2 Crowds Out Weeds

Regular feedings are the fastest, most affordable way to care for your lawn, keeping problems out of your yard and off your mind. Feeding your lawn two or three times a year provides the nutrients it needs for deep roots and strong, full blades. One bag of ScottsĀ® Turf BuilderĀ® feeds an average-size lawn and goes down easily in about 15 minutes. That's all it takes to grow stronger, greener grass that can crowd out weeds and stand up to heat, sun, stress and play.

Don't Forget Regular Feedings Are Key

Feed your lawn every 6 to 8 weeks to keep it looking green and healthy. Need a reminder? Consider signing up for our email newsletter, which is filled with timely lawn care advice for your area, or downloading the My Lawn app, which helps you create and track your own personalized lawn care plan.
