Why Use Lawnifi Fertilizer?
When it comes to selecting the perfect fertilizer for your lawn’s needs, one of the smartest moves you can make is taking a soil sample and sending it in to your local extension agent. The local extension agent will come back with a report of all the nutrients in your soil as well as the nutrients that are missing. This helps you pinpoint the exact type of fertilizer you will need to select and purchase to match your lawn’s needs. Today, Sod University talks about Lawnifi™, a liquid grass fertilizer that is efficient, effective and convenient to use. Read below to learn how Lawnifi’s family of fertilizer products offer a variety of solutions to match your lawn’s needs as seasons (and soil conditions) change.
Lawnifi is Efficient
Lawnifi is powered by Catalyst Technology™, which nano-sizes the nutrients to make them more efficient. Fertilizer nutrients are nano-sized so that they are readily available for the plant to absorb through its roots and leaves. When you apply a granular fertilizer product, the granules sit in the soil waiting for water and microbes to break them down so they can eventually be taken in by the plant. Lawnifi’s liquid, nano-sized nutrients are absorbed more efficiently through the roots and leaves, reducing the amount of product that needs to be used. Since there is a smaller amount of product used, less money is spent on pounds of granular fertilizer making Lawnifi earth-friendly as well.

Lawnifi is Effective
Nano-sizing nutrients allows lawns to use less fertilizer and yields better results. With increased amounts of nutrients absorbed into your grass, Lawnifi becomes an effective, liquid fertilizer. Lawnifi uses 80 percent less nitrogen and encourages healthy soils and microbial populations through humates, carbon and the micronutrients plants need to thrive. Since there is less nitrogen usage, Lawnifi is also earth-friendly. One of the most common mistakes homeowners make is applying too much nitrogen. When too much nitrogen is present, the ideal carbon-nitrogen ratio is disrupted, and plants stop absorbing nutrients altogether. As previously mentioned, taking a soil sample can help you distinguish which nutrients are missing from your soil. You may find a large amount of nitrogen in your soil, but don’t see the positive physical results you are looking for. In this case, you may need more carbon and micronutrients.

Lawnifi is Convenient and Easy to Use
Granular fertilizers can be hard to transport and lift. You will also require a granular spreader to distribute the fertilizer across your lawn. Since Lawnifi is a liquid fertilizer, it contains less product and is therefore easier to lift and transport. Simply attach a bottle of Lawnifi to the end of your garden hose and spray evenly as seen in the image below. Then relax and enjoy your healthy lawn!
Lawnifi’s Annual Subscription Program consists of three seasonal boxes—one for spring, summer and fall—called the Spring Box, Summer Box, and Fall Box.
