Plant Fertilization in Palm Beach, Broward and Martin County

In Florida plant fertilization in our sandy soil is key to a beautiful landscape. That is because our soil basically has no nutritional value, so feeding your plants is important to their health and beauty...and it is quite easy to do, once you learn the basics.

Here in Florida we must always remain aware how we impact our natural water resources. Sometimes Florida yards need fertilizer to help keep them healthy, but applying too much fertilizer, too often or at the wrong time can cause water pollution.

Recent studies have shown that rising nitrate levels in many local water bodies can be traced to fertilizer. Nitrate is a form of nitrogen that is found in inorganic fertilizers. When fertilizer is needed and applied correctly, the lawn absorbs the nitrogen. However, fertilizers applied improperly can run off lawns and into local water bodies, harming water quality and threatening the plants and animals that depend on clean water for survival.

The nutrients in fertilizers are only available to your lawn and landscape when they are kept in the root zone of those plants. Keeping the nutrients in the root zone protects our springs, prevents waste, encourages plant health and saves you money. Proper watering practices will conserve water, reduce potential fertilizer leaching or runoff, and produce healthier lawns and plants with more vigorous roots systems and greater drought tolerance.
