Fertigation for Healthy Lawn, Plants and Flowers
Now is the time to fertilize your lawn and landscape. Learn about how Rain Rich’s Fertigation system works.
If you’re like most Long Island homeowners, knowing which fertilizer to choose and the right time to apply can be a daunting task. Will your lawn and flowers be fed with the right nutrients to ensure they stay lush and healthy? Will you apply the right mix at the correct rate? Will your fertilizer wash away after a heavy rain storm?
Fertigation works by delivering tiny precise amounts of fertilizer each time the sprinkler system operates. Fertilizer and other bio nutrients will be automatically injected into your irrigation system. Every time you water, the Rain Rich Fertigation System feeds the entire landscape and improves the soil for plant life. The technology itself is not new, and has been tested and perfected in the golf, agriculture, and horticulture industries for over 6 decades.

How does Fertigation provide great results?
