THE spring season does not mean spring cleaning, but also time to get outside and think about gardening.
With warmer days and more sunshine, this is the perfect time to take care of your lawn after it has weathered the cold, long winter months.
When is the best time to fertilize your lawn?
Depending on where you live, March and April are the best times to fertilize the lawn.
It’s also good practice to make sure your lawn has been watered, rather by rain or sprinklers, a few days before applying the fertilizer.
You can also check the soil temperature to see if it’s a good time to add some fertilizer if you’re still not quite sure when to add it.
When the temperature is around 55 degrees Fahrenheit, you’re good to go!
How often should you fertilize your lawn?
It’s recommended that you fertilize your lawn at least five to six times a year, but this may vary depending on the grass type and climate you live in.
For example, summer grasses such as: Bermuda, St. Augustine, Zoysia, Centipede or Buffalo should be fertilized in the spring months.
Experts recommend fertilizing your lawn when it’s growing fast, appropriately InstallItDirect.com.
Depending on the amount of water your lawn receives, it is recommended that fertilizer be applied at least every six to eight weeks.
A good green thumb rule is that if the grass looks thick and green, you can skip the fertilizer.
If it looks more brown or black, don’t be afraid to add something.
Why is fertilization important?
The fertilization process provides the extra nutrients your weed needs around this time.
This step helps prevent crabgrass and allows the grass to grow into a green and dense green.
