Time-Release Fertilizer

The Ford’s Hometown Services Time-Release Fertilizer Advantage

Releasing the potential of your yard starts with the right fertilizer. When you work with the experts at Ford’s Hometown Services for your lawn care, you can trust us to deliver the best products and technology. And the best is our temperature time-released controlled fertilizer, not to be confused with slow-release fertilizers. Duration fertilizer is packed into durable polymer coated pellets that deliver time-released nutrients based on soil temperature rather than soil moisture. 

New technology temperature-released fertilizer gives you an advantage you’ll see all season long. You’ll enjoy:

  • Industry-leading time-release: You’ll be delivering nutrients into your yard for up to 12 weeks versus the four weeks that are standard with other “slow-release” fertilizers.
  • No surge growth: Due to Duration’s time-increment feeding you will not be mowing every four days from a large nitrogen release like cheaper slow-release fertilizers offer.
  • Disease reduction: Less nitrogen surge growth means less disease.
  • One-and-done delivery: Since temperature-release fertilizers need to be applied less often, you’ll save time and money by eliminating the need for multiple visits. 
  • Weather-resistant coverage: Traditional fertilizers can leach in heavy rains and wash away. Temperature-release fertilizers resist leaching, meaning you can trust the pellets to release regardless of rains or overwatering, and rest assured excess fertilizer won’t find its way into local waterways or stormwater drains. 
  • Lawn protection: Because of its incredible time-release, Duration will not burn your lawn, unlike cheaper fertilizers on the market. 

When our experienced technicians use Duration in your yard, your grass will be healthier, thicker, greener, and more naturally prohibit weed growth.

Time-released fertilizer is the best, and we’d like to prove it. Call us today at (800) 649-9992 to learn more about the Ford’s Hometown Services Time-Release Fertilizer Advantage and get your free estimate (prices based on square footage).
