How can a lawn fertilization service help my lawn?
Lawn fertilization provides many benefits:
- Encourages root and leaf growth
- Improves soil and turf health
- Helps the lawn resist damage from stressors including pests, diseases, and drought
- Replenishes vital nutrients that can be lost over time
- Crowds out weeds — naturally!
Why should you hire an expert for lawn fertilization services?
With so many products on the market, lawn care and fertilization may seem like an easy do-it-yourself task. In reality, it can be difficult to do correctly.
The first question many homeowners ask is: When should I fertilize my lawn in Minnesota? Doing 4 to 5 incremental fertilizer applications throughout the growing season is optimal. The first application, typically done in April or May, is the most important to encourage vigorous growth. Early summer fertilizer can be combined with crabgrass preventive treatments as well. Over the warmer summer months, we recommend 2 to 3 maintenance applications, along with careful attention to watering. The final application is done in the fall.
Timing isn’t the only important consideration. The type of fertilizer used makes a big difference to the health of your yard. During our lawn fertilization services, our experts use only the best slow-release, granular products that won’t burn your lawn, or stimulate the grass to grow too quickly.
Our technicians are highly trained to avoid problems homeowners often encounter, including:
- Using too much, or the wrong type of fertilizer
- Uneven distribution of fertilizer
- Applying more than the lawn requires and is able to use
- Applying fertilizer when the lawn doesn’t need it
When too much fertilizer is applied, it can leach into groundwater, or run off and contaminate lakes and streams. Contact the experts at Rainbow Lawncare, and allow us to take the stress out of caring for your lawn!

What can you expect from our lawn fertilization service?
Unlike other lawn care companies, Rainbow Lawncare never locks you into a plan you’re not fully committed to. Not only do you have control over how many (or how few!) fertilizer applications your lawn receives, we also offer you the option of choosing between synthetic or organic-based products. You can also rely on us to follow safe environmental practices. For example, Minnesota state law prohibits Phosphorus from being used unless a soil test demonstrates the yard has a Phosphorus deficiency, or the yard is being newly established.
Choose your fertilizer option
Rainbow Lawncare offers you three different fertilizer options to choose from depending on the look you want and the approach you value.
Our experts use the highest quality products in our synthetic fertilizers. We use golf course grade, slow-release granular fertilizers that produce a lush green lawn. This premier granular product releases slowly and promotes healthy steady growth that is easy to maintain. We never use quick-release fertilizers that not only can leach into groundwater, but can also force your grass to grow too quickly.
Natural organic based fertilizer
This fertilizer works best on soils that have a high percentage of organic matter. Our experts may test your soil to determine its current condition, including how much organic matter it contains. This fertilizer differs from our synthetic fertilizer because it contains a combination of refined elements and feather meal, which adds a level of organic material to your lawn.
Fully organic fertilizer
This fertilizer has become an extremely popular choice for people who want to reduce their personal environmental impact. With our fully organic lawn care program no pesticides or herbicides will be used on your property. Upon request, spot treatment of weeds can be performed in targeted areas.
Choose your frequency
Our most popular option includes 5 applications for the season. We combine the granular fertilizer of your choice along with the number of applications.
Round 1 – Granular fertilizer of your choice plus crabgrass preventer, and liquid weed control as needed.
Rounds 2 – 5 – Granular fertilizer and liquid weed control as needed.
Insecticides and fungicides can be added to your program of choice as needed and when deemed necessary.
