Top Lawn Fertilisation related questions
No, this isn’t required. Taskers are fully equipped and should carry all the necessary tools they need to complete any lawn fertilisation job. However, if you do have tools on hand and prefer to use them, feel free to let your Tasker know. You can also ask them if they need anything else for the job.
You should wait at least 24 hours before walking on your lawn after fertilisation. This is to avoid getting irritated skin because of the fertilisers. This also ensures your property is dry and the roots absorb the fertiliser.
Not yet. You need to wait for 24 hours after lawn fertilisation before you can water your lawn. Once the 24 hours are up, be sure to give your yard a good watering session. The water will help break down the fertiliser and feed nutrients to your lawn.
You’ll need to fertilize your lawn around five to six times a year to fully fertilize it and keep it in top shape. However, this may also vary depending on the climate and the type of grass on your lawn. Feel free to ask your Tasker for their professional recommendations.
What do lawn fertilization services include?
There’s more to lawn fertilization than meets the eye. Fertilizing your lawn strengthens its root structure, keeping it durable and retaining more water. Most people wouldn’t know that proper fertilization can also aid against unwanted weed growth. Fertilizing your lawn makes it thick and healthy, which naturally prevents seeds from unwanted plants from penetrating the soil. At the same time, those that do won’t get enough sunlight to grow. Some lawn fertilizer services offered by Taskers may vary between one another. But generally speaking, you should be able to expect the following:
At the beginning of the job, your Tasker will need to inspect and familiarize themselves with your lawn. During inspection and assessment, your technician will be able to check if you have any natural threats to your property, such as pests and lawn disease. This helps them determine your lawn needs and map out a treatment plan.
Creating a lawn treatment plan
Once your Tasker is done with their assessment, they’ll make a customized treatment plan for your lawn. This is because not all properties are the same, and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all lawn care fertilizer service out there. Lawn fertilization treatments are a long-term commitment, and your Taskers would know the best way of fertilizing your lawn and how often it needs treatment.
Healthy lawns usually require around five to six lawn fertilizers and weed control applications in a year. Your Tasker will also use a wide range of fertilizers such as quick-release, slow-release, granular, liquid, or organic fertilizers. Now this will depend on what treatment your lawn needs. During the planning, your lawn and garden may also need extra work such as leveling the ground will soil or adding sand to a garden fixture. You can have soil and sand delivered to ensure your Tasker has all the materials they need to complete the job.
Watering your lawn
If your grass is a bit too tall, your Tasker may mow your lawn to ensure enough water reaches the soil. Your Tasker will then begin by watering your lawn. This helps prepare the soil to receive lawn fertilizer. A wet or moist lawn will absorb fertilizer easier.
Applying the fertilizer
Once the soil is ready, your Taskers will choose the appropriate fertilizer and corresponding fertilizer spreader and start feeding your lawn. They will begin at the perimeter and work their way inwards. This is done so that your Tasker won’t miss out on any edges. Similar to a mowing pattern, your Tasker will feed your lawn by walking back and forth in a straight line and slightly overlap on every pass.
Don’t forget to collect any green waste once the job’s done. Now you’re all set, and your lawn should be looking healthy and lush in no time. Your Tasker will return on the next fertilization schedule, or you can just book them again in a few weeks.
