Nitrogen – is an essential mineral that is used in large quantities by a lawn. The grass accesses the nitrogen through its root system. Nitrogen stimulates shoot growth in grass giving your lawn a thick healthy appearance. Nitrogen is also an integral part of chlorophyll production, which is what makes grass green. Grass will be lighter green where the nitrogen has been depleted.
Phosphorus – This mineral is essential for the growth of roots. So if you have a starter lawn, meaning you are starting it from seed, you’ll want a fertilizer high in phosphorus. Phosphorus an Important player in photosynthesis, energy transfer and fruit and flower production.
Potassium – Also important in the photosynthesis process as well as cell wall strength which is directly related to water retention. It helps the roots of the grass take firm hold in the soil and it is also essential to grass’s ability to absorbing other nutrients. So if it is low in potassium but high in everything else, it still won’t thrive because it won’t be able to absorb any of the nutrients. A lack of this nutrient can turn the blades of grass yellow at the edges or even purple at the tips.
