When do I Fertilize?

The best time to start Fertilizing your lawn is in early spring, when the soil temperature starts to warm-up. You’ll know when flowers start to bloom and the grass starts growing. One of the most important things you can do for your lawn is to fertilize it. A well-fed lawn is healthier, which means it has a better root system to combat heat, cold, drought, mowing, foot traffic, and other stresses. While feeding your lawn once a year will improve its condition, feeding it 4 times a year will make it even healthier and more beautiful. Your lawn wakes up hungry in the spring! Fertilizing it strengthens roots and gets it off to a good start!

  1. Early spring lawn fertilizer once between February and April

2. Late Spring: Lawn fertilizer once between April and June, typically 6 to 8 weeks after the early spring                feeding.

3. Summer is tough on grass, thanks to heat, drought, foot traffic, and insects. Fertilizing helps protect                   and strengthen it. Fertilize Summer lawn fertilizer once between June and August, 6 to 8 weeks after               the late spring feeding.

4. Your lawn is looking for the nutrients it needs to recover from summer damage while getting ready for          its winter sleep. Doing your fall lawn fertilization now will strengthen roots and increase nitrogen                        storage   for a healthy, green lawn next spring. Fall lawn fertilizer once between August and November,            right before winter hits, 6 to 8 weeks after the summer feeding.
