Spring Fertilizing: The garden's cup of coffee.

Cup of coffee in the garden.


The long nights of winter have come to an end. The weather starts to warm. Your garden begins to wake from a winter's sleep and just like me in the morning, it could use a cup of coffee to wake it up.

No, I am not talking about the past craze of adding coffee grounds to your landscape. I'm simply talking about spring fertilizing. Spring is a season of rejuvenation and renewal. The buds on the trees start to open, the grass starts to grow, and the flowers start to bloom. It's the perfect time to start thinking about fertilizing your landscape.

Fertilizing in the spring is important for several reasons. First and foremost, it helps to replenish the nutrients that were lost during the wet winter months. This is particularly important for lawns, which can become depleted of essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. By fertilizing in the spring, you can help to ensure that your lawn has the nutrients it needs to grow strong and healthy throughout the growing season.

Another reason why spring fertilizing is important is that it can help prevent weeds from taking over your landscape. Weeds are notorious for thriving in nutrient-poor environments, so by making sure that your lawn and garden are well-fertilized, you can help prevent weeds from taking hold. Fertilizing your plants and applying a new layer of compost or mulch will also help retain moisture as temperatures rise and suppress weeds.

Finally, fertilizing in the spring can help to promote healthy root growth, which is essential for the long-term health of your lawn and garden. When plants have strong, healthy root systems, they are better able to withstand drought, disease, and other environmental stresses.

Spring fertilizing is an important step in maintaining a healthy and vibrant landscape. By replenishing nutrients, preventing weeds, and promoting healthy root growth, you can help to ensure that your lawn and garden stay healthy and beautiful throughout the growing season.
