Is Liquid or Granular Fertilizer Better?

If you have a lawn, it’s important to keep it healthy so that it looks good and lasts for years to come. One of the key ways to keep your lawn healthy is by fertilizing it regularly. But what type of fertilizer should you use? 

In today’s blog post, our lawn fertilization company is diving into the differences between the two main types of fertilizer: liquid and granular. Both have their pros and cons, so it’s important to choose the right one for your lawn. Learn more about types of lawn fertilization, and if you’d rather leave the lawn care to the pros, contact Simply Green Lawn Care!

Lawn Health

The most important factor to consider when choosing a fertilizer is lawn health. Liquid fertilizer is absorbed more quickly by the lawn, so it’s great for quick-acting results. Granular fertilizer takes longer to break down and be absorbed, but it provides a slow release of nutrients that can last for weeks or even months.

If you’re looking for immediate results, liquid fertilizer is the way to go. However, if you’re looking for long-term lawn health, granular fertilizer is a better choice.

Another factor to consider is convenience. Liquid fertilizer is easy to apply and doesn’t require any special equipment. Granular fertilizer can be more difficult to apply evenly, and you may need a lawn spreader to get the job done. If you’re looking for something even more convenient, hire a lawn fertilization company to do the job for you!

When it comes to frequency, liquid fertilizer needs to be applied more often than granular fertilizer. This is because the nutrients in liquid fertilizer are used up more quickly by the lawn. Granular fertilizer lasts longer, so you don’t need to apply it as often.


Liquid fertilizer is typically more expensive than granular fertilizer, but you don’t need to use as much of it. Granular fertilizer is less expensive, but you’ll need to use more of it to get the same results.

So, which is better? Liquid or granular fertilizer? The answer depends on your lawn’s needs. If you’re not sure which fertilizer is right for your lawn, contact Simply Green Lawn Care in Atlanta. Our lawn care company can help you choose the right fertilizer for your lawn, and will apply it for you!

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
