What Are the Benefits of Nature’s Helper’s 6-Step Fertilizer Program?

Our program is the easiest way to help ensure your lawn is in great shape all year. If you want your lawn looking great but you don’t always have time to care for it, this is the program for you.

How Does the Release of Nitrogen Help My Lawn?

Why is nitrogen so important to this fertilizer? Nitrogen is a key component in chlorophyll, the substance plants use to draw energy from the sun. It is present in a far higher concentration in plants than any other nutrient. Nitrogen is a critical component in the life and growth of grass and other plants. While we can draw nitrogen easily from the air, grass cannot, which is why it is so important to get it into the soil.

How Does This Fertilizer Program Work to Control the Weeds on My Lawn?

If you have a large weed infestation in your yard part of the fertilizer program includes treating your lawn with Escalade, a powerful weed-killer. The right Escalade formulation uses multiple herbicides to control over 240 broadleaf weeds. It works quickly and effectively along with your fertilizer to prevent a wide variety of weeds from taking over your lawn — weeds such as dandelion, bedstraw, hawkweed, thistle, sumac and many more.
