Fertilizer provides the needed nutrients for your lawn to grow lush and green. Without it, the grass is unlikely to grow healthy and full. It may also not be as green as you want it to be. Optimal fertilization results occur when the product is applied accurately, with correct amounts evenly. If coverage is inconsistent, growth will be as well, making your lawn look sloppy. Too much fertilization also has its negative impact, including causing thatch buildup that can, among other things, harbor large populations of disease-causing organisms and insects, causing an increase in pest problems in your yard. Applying too much fertilizer can have a potentially negative environmental impact, such as an overgrowth of algae and aquatic weeds caused by the fertilizer runoff, which can damage wildlife and greenery. Brightstar Lawn Service applies a slow release product, which means that your lawn will get the nutrients it needs over time. In particular, this provides a small but steady supply of nitrogen – the nutrient responsible for green growth and optimized health, which reduces the risk of disease and fungus growth.
