Lawn Phosphorous Deficiency

Phosphorous is essential for the health of lawn grass as well as other plants in the garden. Slow growth, dead patches of lawn and burnt looking grass can be a symptom.


If your lawn grasses are showing slow growth and burnt patches. These symptoms suggest the grass is not absorbing sufficient phosphorous.


If the symptoms suggest phosphorous deficiency apply an appropriate lawn fertiliser. LawnPro Feed & Flourish or LawnPro 7 Day Green is ideally balanced for providing nitrogen to lawn grasses and promoting green, lush dense lawns.

Then apply LawnPro Lawn Thickener to repair the lawn and fill in patches of dead or affected lawn. It also contains fertiliser with an NPK of 6 : 2.5 : 3.7.

Because phosphorous absorption can be strongly influenced by the pH (acidity - alkalinity) of the soil, check the pH. To make phosphorous most available to the plants adjust the pH to neutral or slightly acidic, pH6.0 - 7.0.

The macro nutrients that plants need in relatively large quantities are nitrogen (N), sulphur (S), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg). But plants also need trace elements in small quantities for healthy growth. Trace elements include; iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), boron (B), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn) and molybdenum (Mo).
