Lawn Fertilizer and Weed Control
Serving Greater Orlando Florida | Windermere | Oviedo | Longwood
Grasshoppers is your local source for lawn fertilizer services in the greater Orlando FL area! While regular watering is obviously an important part in keeping your lawn looking fresh and green, fertilizer also plays a huge role in helping your lawn stay dense and healthy.
Because Florida’s climate involves significant amounts of water and heat, maintaining your lawn can be more complicated than simply spreading around fertilizer once a year. Your lawn fertilizing schedule can change depending on the species of grass, the other plants present, and even the amount of shade your lawn receives.
For expert lawn maintenance, turn to Grasshoppers. We have the skills and expertise to fertilize and maintain your commercial lawn and landscaping!

Lawn fertilizer should always be mixed for your specific lawn
Lawn fertilizer is available in a number of different formulations, depending on the species of grass. Basic fertilizer contains potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen, all in varying amounts. These ingredients help in a few different ways:
- Nitrogen stimulates growth and enhances green color
- Phosphorus provides for better overall health and enhances blooms
- Potassium helps stimulate the growth of roots
When you look at the outside of a fertilizer bag, you’ll usually see three numbers such as 10-10-10. These numbers indicate the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium that are included in the mixture.
Lawn fertilizer services vary, if you have other plants within your lawn, especially palm trees, your fertilizing mixture needs to be considered carefully. If the mixture is great for your lawn but terrible for everything else, you might end up killing some of your landscaping! Palm trees can present complications when fertilizing, especially when their drip lines are large.
Fertilizing schedules should change from season to season
Fertilizer treatments must be scheduled in specific ways to produce a lawn that stays green and healthy. The technicians who apply our grass fertilizer understand the chemistry behind the fertilizer mixture, knowing exactly when and how to apply. Some fertilizers can be made as “slow-release” mixtures, which is typically better for Florida’s frequent rains.
Lawn fertilizer amounts should be carefully measured and considered
Your lawn will require a proper amount of lawn fertilizer to stay healthy. If too much is applied, it can actually cause burn spots, which are unsightly and require repair. At Grasshoppers, we can determine the correct amount of fertilizer that should be applied to your lawn by considering your property’s details, including recent storms, drainage issues, and other potential complications.
