We all want a beautiful lawn, but the path to get there can seem overwhelming. However, simply scheduling fertilization treatments at the right time can get you a long way! For the grass in the Calgary, AB area, it's recommended that you fertilize in the spring, summer, and fall. Fertilizing in spring will give your lawn the jumpstart it needs to come out of winter dormancy while also bolstering it for the upcoming summer heat. With our cool-season grass, fertilization in summer is a must to help it withstand the heat without falling into a second dormancy. Finally, fall fertilization will be what your lawn needs to store up all the nutrients necessary to survive the long winter dormancy and emerge healthy next spring! By fertilizing throughout the year, you'll be providing your lawn with the strength needed to survive and thrive despite any seasonal challenges.

Fertilizing in spring will replenish nutrients used up over winter dormancy.

Spring is an important season to start your lawn off on the right foot. Your lawn will still be recovering from its winter dormancy and may be low on nutrients after rationing them all winter long. Once the temperature rises and soil temperatures go up, your grass will begin to break dormancy and try to grow once more – but if it doesn't have the nutrients needed, it will struggle. Giving it fertilizer now will help replenish those nutrient stores so it can focus on growth. This will also help your lawn build up nutrients for the upcoming summer season!

Cool-season grasses include the likes of Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, fine fescue, and perennial ryegrass.

The summer heat is a challenge, but fertilizer will bolster your lawn so it can survive.

For cool-season grass, summer is one of the most challenging seasons of the year. Grass can even enter a second dormancy in summer if we aren't careful! To help prevent this dormancy, a summer fertilization treatment will bolster your lawn so it can survive the heat. Fertilizer will help ensure that your lawn is lush and green all summer long rather than becoming a sad, brown dormancy lawn.

Fertilizer will contain differing amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium depending on the time of year and the lawn's specific needs.

Fall fertilization restores nutrients and prepares your lawn for winter dormancy.

Fall is often the best growing season of the year for our cool-season grass. Your grass will be doing a lot of growing during this time, so encourage that growth with a fall fertilization treatment! This will restore the nutrients your grass used to survive the summer heat, encourage it to grow while the weather is favorable, and help prepare it to survive the upcoming winter dormancy. Fertilizer will make sure all these factors are well taken care of so that come spring, your lawn can emerge from dormancy strong and healthy!
