Using Fertilizers in Limited Quantity

It is good to add fertilizers, but lots of them can promote rapid grass growth that can give shelter to insects and cause some diseases. Hence, you should not apply fertilizers in excess quantities. You can apply them during the fall season, but not the ones with high nitrogen ingredients.

If you want to kill worms, you can apply pesticides, but not fungicides or insecticides, as it makes the soil poorer. The health of soil is less likely to get damaged by insects or succumb to infections.
