Fairgreen offers the same fertilizer to its customers that we use ourselves to nurture and grow the sod we sell. The fertilizer is available is 25 kg and 10 kg bags and can be picked up at our Markham or Oro-Medonte yard. We offer a variety of different blends depending on the time of year.

Fertilizing is an important lawn care practice, as it influences grass color, ability to recover from stress, lushness which helps prevent weed invasions and disease. There are important features to consider when choosing lawn fertilizers.

Nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) are the three major nutrients needed by lawns. Nitrogen is the nutrient required most, although too much nitrogen can cause excessive top growth, leading to assorted problems.

Percent nitrogen (by weight) is always the first of the three numbers on the fertilizer bag, followed by phosphorus and potassium.

For example, an 18-6-12 fertilizer contains 18 percent nitrogen. This number is important because it determines how much fertilizer is needed. In most cases, a rate of 1 pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet is suggested for each fertilizer application to the lawn.

If high percentage nitrogen fertilizers are used, then less actual fertilizer product is needed to supply that one pound compared to fertilizers with low percent nitrogen.

Recommended ratios of N-P-K for lawn fertilizers include 3:1:2 or 4:1:2.
