What does Elements Lawn Care do differently when feeding your lawn?
We use a slow release granular feeding system that will not burn your lawn even on the hottest days. This product will wait for moisture and then release the needed nutrients over a period of 4-6 weeks.
Sulfur-coated urea (SCU) fertilizers are granules of urea coated with sulfur and wax. Imperfections (cracks, fissures, fractures) in the coating allow water to move in and dissolve, then release the urea. For fertilizer particles with coatings that are intact after application, water movement through the coating results in internal osmotic pressure that cracks the coating, releasing nutrients. This process has been called catastrophic release. In addition, microbial degradation of the wax and sulfur allows water to reach the urea, dissolving and releasing it. – Slow-Release Technology, KochTurf.com
