So, for instance, if you look at a bag that weighs 25 pounds and the first number, nitrogen, is 10, then the bag holds 2 ½ pounds of nitrogen. Likewise, if the bag weighs 60 pounds and the number for nitrogen is 10, the bag has 6 pounds of nitrogen.

Lawns require more nitrogen than phosphorus and potassium, so it’s common to see bags ending in 0-0 for the last two numbers. Other nutrients that often go into fertilizer include calcium, sulfur and carbon.

Lawn Fertilization Best Practices

When you (or an outside business) perform lawn fertilization, there are a few practices to follow. These practices are environmentally friendly, for example, keeping the water supply more pristine. They are also better for your lawn in general.

Keep fertilizer on your lawn. Some types of fertilizer, such as granular, have the tendency to wander onto sidewalks and decks. If this occurs, use a broom or blower to return the fertilizer to your lawn. When you are filling your spreader to fertilize large areas, do so on a tarp so that it can catch spilled fertilizer. And if you accidentally dump fertilizer on your lawn? Spread it out as much as you can with a broom. Spread again in a few days.
