How to choose liquid fertiliser for lawns

Knowing how to choose liquid lawn fertiliser will benefit your garden since different fertilisers are better used for certain things. For example, our Make it Grow gives your lawn a boost of nutrients to enhance its growth, and Make it Green is high in nitrogen to make it luscious and vibrantly green. Whereas Make it Strong has high levels of all three NPK elements to give your lawn the strength and resilience to overcome the cold winter months.

Understanding the NPK rating for liquid fertiliser

NPK is the symbol of the chemical elements that make up plant fertilisers, which applies to granular and liquid fertilisers.

  • N – Nitrogen
  • P – Phosphorous
  • K – Potassium

There are different ratios of each component in each of our liquid fertilisers. Three numbers indicate the levels of each in the fertilisers, representing the N P K ratio in that order.

Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are vital for healthy plant growth but are not always available in the soil due to soil quality or how long plants have been growing and extracting nutrients in that area. This is where grass fertiliser benefits your lawn, ensuring your grass grows well all year round.
