Bermudagrass, zoysiagrass, and fescue are the three main grass types found in Tulsa and Oklahoma City area lawns. And for these turf types to grow into a thick, healthy, green turf, fertilization is a key component. Bermudagrass especially loves nitrogen, the main component in fertilizer, so it needs to be applied several times during the growing season for best results. Nitrogen requirements for fescue are less, and in fact can harm fescue if applied too much during the summer.
There are all types of fertilizer for turf, with different timing of applications and rates. One of the many things which separate LawnAmerica from the pack of others is the quality of fertilizer we apply to our lawns. Our’s contains from 25% to 75% slow-release nitrogen, which is more efficient and better for the turf and environment. Many others just use quick-release nitrogen, or even just straight Urea (46-0-0), which is much cheaper.
