Whether you have a farm or you just like to keep your yard looking like it belongs on the cover of a magazine, there are several steps you have to do every month or so. Not only will you want to ensure that all of your plants are getting the water that they need, you also need to make sure they are getting the nutrients that they need as well. Although things like organic compost will help to give plants and soil back their nutrients, you should also be fertilizing on a regular basis. Two of the most popular type of effective fertilizer systems include both surface and subsurface injection fertilizer systems, like spike wheel. This article will take a closer look at both of these options to help you determine which one will give you the best results possible. 

Surface Fertilizer (granular fertilizer)

The most popular type of fertilizer for people who have a small yard or just for the average homeowner is surface fertilizer. Surface fertilizer, or granular fertilizer, is easy to apply and works really well if done right. Typically, all you have to do is purchase the right type of granular fertilizer and a fertilizer handheld spreader. Then, you will usually wet your lawn so that it is saturated. Finally, you will put on gloves, boots, and pants (so the fertilizer doesn't touch your skin) and you will walk around your yard to evenly spread the granular fertilizer across it. Depending on the type of yard you have, you may need to repeat this step every month or so. 

Subsurface Injection Fertilizer

If you have a large property, then you may want to contact someone about subsurface injection fertilizer systems. This type of fertilizer should only be administered by a professional because it's fairly complex. During each application, a professional will inject a fertilizer solution directly into the soil to help give it the nutrients that it needs. The really great thing about this type of fertilizer is that since it goes right to the root of the problem (literally) it is very effective. Plus, another great thing is that you don't have to worry about the hassle of granular fertilizer around pets and kids which can be a real pain and a hazard. 

Now that you know a bit about surface and subsurface fertilizing, it's time for you to make the choice for you farm or garden that's right for you.
