Before a landscaping company comes to your home, it doesn't hurt to brush up on your fertilization knowledge. There are three main groups of fertilizers, though many fertilizers include properties from more than one of these groups.
- NPK Fertilizers – This most commonly used fertilizer group, adds three essential nutrients for plant growth (N- Nitrogen, P- Phosphorus and K- Potassium)
- pH Fertilizers – This fertilizer group's specific function is to neutralize your soil's PH.
- Humate Fertilizer – This fertilizer is derived from ancient fossils and is often overlooked, but it performs many essential functions.
