Fertilizing Your Zoysia Lawn: Granular vs. Water Soluble Fertilizers
posted on July 14th, 2010 by Steve Schug
There are many different types of fertilizers that claim to help nourish your lawn. With all the options that are out there, it is difficult to know which is right for your lawn. You should be aware of what kind of fertilizer is right for an Amazoy zoysia lawn.
Granular fertilizers are probably the type of fertilizer you are most familiar with. While these are most common and popular with homeowners, they are not best for your zoysia lawn.
Granular fertilizers tend to simply sit on the surface of grass, causing burns that could damage your plugs. The nutrients never reach the roots, where they are most needed.
Water Soluble Fertilizers
Water Soluble Fertilizers allow for the fertilizer to dissolve in the water, which takes the nutrients directly to the roots. This provides your grass with vital food elements that help it grow to become lush and healthy.
