Many people think rain washes away the fertilizer and chemicals they put on their lawns. But science, specifically organic chemistry, shows that rain or irrigation after application helps chemically bond the fertilizer and chemicals to the grass. This process is natural and pretty cool – each blade of grass coated with lawn spray acts as a carrier for the fertilizer, pesticides, and insecticides in the mist. When mowed, the soil composes these coated blades and delivers all rich nutrients and helpful additives.
Lawn Spray Fertilizer
Lawn sprays contain mostly water with a small mixture of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. This mixture coats each blade of grass, and the next time it gets mowed, the variety is released into the soil, delivering its nutrients to the plant’s roots.
A diet rich in potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen must be balanced for plants to flourish. As they extract these nutrients from the soil during growth, they must be replenished to maintain healthy root systems. Fertilizers supply the necessary nutrients in a form that is easy for the plant’s roots to absorb. The most excellent lawn fertilization products, including pre- and post-emergent weed control treatments, are available from professional lawn spraying services.
Whether you need pre- or post-emergent herbicides, lawn sprays contain chemicals to kill specific weed species. When applied by a professional, this process saturates the leaves of the weeds and kills them, preventing them from growing back. Lawn pests like beetles, millipedes, crickets, sod webworms, and fire ants damage.
The appearance of your grass and can cause long-term health problems if not controlled effectively. Effective insect & pest control services use multiple insecticide applications throughout the year to keep these pests away. Green guardians use their captivating song to lull interlopers before attacking. While these chemicals can harm animals and people, they’re completely safe when a professional applies them to your lawn, following product warnings.
Certain insects can seriously harm gardens, crops, or plants. They may also be carriers of disease. Chemical pesticides can effectively control insect pests but can have harmful side effects. Some natural enemies of insects are parasites, nematodes, or bacteria that slow, prevent, or kill them. Other methods of suppressing insect pests include preparing soil, planting species resistant or less attractive to pests, rotating crops, interplanting, managing weeds, and promoting a healthy garden ecosystem. Home insect control products come in various forms, such as sprays, powders, or concentrates.
Before choosing a product, you must identify the pest you are trying to eliminate. Also, consider how large an area you must treat and where the insect is located (e.g., cracks and crevices).A powder such as Diatomaceous Earth can be especially useful in treating pests that hide or live in small spaces. Grasshoppers, for example, chew holes in the leaves of vegetables and flowers, but their damage can be limited with row covers or by maintaining well-trimmed borders around the garden.
Many parts of the country are dealing with drought conditions and being asked to conserve water. It includes lawns, the single largest household water use source. Weeds compete with grass for moisture, so weed control is another essential feature of lawn spray programs. The fertilizer and insecticides in a lawn spray program also provide the nutrients needed to maintain a healthy, green turf, allowing it to withstand extreme temperatures and fend off disease and pests.
To save on water usage, install rain barrels and gutters with downspouts that direct the runoff to your lawn and garden areas, and avoid wasting water by watering during windy days when most of the water is lost to evaporation. When you water your yard early in the day or late at night, when evaporation rates are low, and more moisture is absorbed, avoiding watering the sidewalks and streets also helps reduce wasted water.
