Steve’s Lawn Service can fertilize, too. We worked in Auburn, MA. Lawn or garden fertilizer can be a variety of fresh ingredients. The basic answer is: fertilizer is nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. In fertile soils rhododendrons and azaleas can be grown easily without receiving further fertilization. However, if plants mulched with something like original sawdust or wood chips, there will be a nitrogen demand caused by the decomposition of these materials, and unless nitrogen added, the plants expected to show yellowish vegetation and poor growth. In this case, a fertilizer such as ammonium sulfate should be added. Fertilizer feeds plants and dirt that may be lacking nutrients. It can be all natural or all chemical. Wait a minimum of 30 days after you lime before adding fertilizer.
Lime and nitrogen counteract each other. They negate the other one and turn into ammonia. It is safer to use mulches other than those containing fresh sawdust or wood chips then you do not have to be concerned with exactly how much more fertilizer to add, as excess fertilizer can hurt your plants by “burning” the roots. That is why we lime in the fall and wait until spring for the first fertilizer application. The years we lime the lawn we miss the fall and winter fertilizing. Plants, just like us, do not like living in ammonia. Steve’s Lawn Service can lime, too. So if, you want your yard to look like heaven. You must choose us!
