Which is better to use as fertilizing your lawn, slow or fast release? I am new to this and I am trying to make the best choice that I can based on the information that is provided,
When using a product like Pennington All Purpose Notrigen Fertilizer 34-0-0, we always recommend getting a soil sample completed first so that you have a starting point when fertilizing your lawn. This will tell you what your lawn needs the most to get it healthy again. Quick release fertilizers make nitrogen available immediately to encourage a rapid recovery however, they can cause burnlike damage and too much can cause growth to quickly that can actually weaken your lawn in the long run. Slow release fertilizer provide nitrogen over a period of time and a steady rate, and are less likely to cause burn and can improve the overall health of your lawn.
