When do I need to Fertilize?

 “When should I fertilize my lawn?”
The short answer is, in the spring and fall.  Or when the lawn is “actively” growing. Avoid fertilizing during the hottest time of the year. Consider these factors: First, grass type and  the type of fertilizer to be used. Second, how do you want your lawn to look? If you want your lawn looking its best, you should fertilize 4-5 times a year, but as a minimum you should fertilize twice a year.
Fertilizers sold in stores are generally a combination of products including; fertilizer, pre-emergent, weed control and pest control chemicals. Each of these should be applied at different times of the year, so it is important to know “what’s in the bag” before you put it on your lawn.
If you’re still having problems give us a call. We’d be happy to help and if you’re tried of “doing it yourself” we’d love to do it for you. Garden Green offers custom programs and scheduling. You’d be surprised how reasonable our cost is compared to buying and applying the fertilizer yourself.
