Fertilize lawn

Fertilizing the lawn - what is the best way to do it?

It is a question we often get. Everything starts so beautifully with sowing or laying sod. The turf is nice and fresh and has a green color. Fertilizer is often applied during the year, but that is often it. After all, the turf still looks nice and green.

Yet you need to be right from the start. By providing the turf with sufficient nutritional elements, the grass will grow densely quickly and weeds and moss will have less chance. A commonly used fertilizer is N23. Where in the past Calcareous Nitrate (KAS) was often used, N23 is the standard for nitrogen fertilization.

It is a nitrogen-rich fertilizer that ensures that grass grows quickly. This will quickly give you a green and dense turf. You should add N23 fertilizer in March/April. The grass then "comes out of winter" and thus receives a 'boost' to grow. The fertilizer can be given again in the summer, but we recommend fertilizing with N23 until the end of September.


From September/October it is better to 'harden off' the grass. You can do this, for example, with Thomaskali . It contains 15% potassium which ensures strong grass. This prepares the grass well for winter.

Grass and lime

Finally, liming the grass. Don't forget to lime your lawn every year. The lime is not a fertilizer but brings the soil to the correct pH. During the year acidification will really occur in your soil. You can bring this back to the correct level with lime. Lime in itself is not a fertilizer! It is a means of getting the soil to the right pH so that the roots can absorb the nutritional elements!

Lime often contains magnesium. This is a nutritional element - and is present in different proportions. The Fertigreen granular lime contains 15% Magnesium. This will give your grass a deep green color.
