Fenced-in backyard with thick, green grass

Healthy lawns and plants don't pop up overnight. It takes a lot of work to develop and grow dense and healthy turf and ornamentals. Fertilizers play a large role in this process, providing vital nutrients to strengthen root systems, to increase growth and to build a resistance to fungal diseases, drought and other stressors.

Liquid or Granular Fertilizers?

The biggest question when it comes to fertilizing the lawn is whether you should use granular or liquid fertilizers. In theory, your turfgrass or ornamentals won't know the difference between the two when you apply them. They both offer different advantages depending on the application.

Dry fertilizers are made with granules and applied as a band, a broadcast or a sidedress. They come in different blends, such as 34-0-12 and 10-30-20, and may even be customized by farmers to get a different ratio to improve crop production and yield.

Liquid fertilizers are applied directly to the soil or on the plants and can be broadcast or band applied, as well as sidedress applied in the mid-season. Foliar applications are popular as they make the nutrients readily available for the turf and plants. However, they don't last as long but are good for addressing deficiencies during the season.

Here's a list of the advantages for both granular and liquid fertilizers:

Granular Fertilizers

  • Often less expensive in bulk
  • Easy to store
  • Slow-release products available

Liquid Fertilizers

  • More uniform application
  • Perfect for starter applications
  • Useful in tank mixes
