Utilizing starter fertilizer during your lawn renovation program adds significant advantages and an increased likelihood for the desired results to come to fruition.
Starter fertilizer will deliver essential nutrients that the seed will need to survive. If the seed is to become new grass, the higher than usually phosphorus levels will need to support the roots vigorous growth, while the nitrogen fuels top growth and affects greening.
The reason for the high phosphorous level is because phosphorus is relatively immovable in the soil. The soil may contain plenty of phosphorus already, but since it doesn’t move or leach, it may not be where the tiny roots can reach it.
