Lawn Fertilizer: Liquid or Granular? Cumming, GA

Whether you do it yourself or hire a lawn care professional, applying fertilizer to your lawn is a non-negotiable task to retain its health and appearance. But as you’ll quickly discover, not all fertilizers are created equal. There are countless different brands and types of fertilizers, but they all fall into two main categories: liquid and granular. While there are certainly pros and cons to each of these fertilizer types, it is important to know which one works best for your specific lawn.

Here are 4 main factors to consider when choosing between a liquid and granular fertilizer:

If you want quick results from your lawn fertilizer, it may be better to buy a liquid because it is absorbed faster by your grass. A granular fertilizer takes longer to break down and slowly releases its nutrients over time. Granular forms are ideal when considering the long-term health of your lawn.

How much time do you have to apply your fertilizer? Liquid fertilizer is easy to apply and can be done by hand. Granular fertilizer requires more effort to apply evenly and may need a lawn spreader to complete the job.

While liquid fertilizer is easier use and produces quicker results, it also needs to be applied more often than granular fertilizer. You can expect granular fertilizer to be more sustainable and demand less application throughout the season.

As always, your budget should be considered when choosing a lawn care product. Liquid fertilizer is typically more expensive than granular fertilizer. Keep in mind that you’ll use less liquid fertilizer per application than granular fertilizer.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
