Fertilization is important to giving your lawn the proper nutrients it needs to thrive through out the year.
Proper fertilization is a balance of what your soil is giving your lawn and what you can add to it.
It’s important to follow a weed and feed schedule for lawn care to apply fertilizer at the right time of year and at the right amount. Otherwise you will end up with a mediocre lawn.
- Over-fertilization can cause spurts of random growth that will cause unsightly, uneven patches of grass.
- Under-fertilization can cause the grass to have difficulty warding off invading weeds and disease. We recommend using a soil analysis test kit or taking a sample of your soil to your local cooperative extension so your soil can be analyzed to determine what nutrients your soil is lacking. The healthiest, hardiest lawns are fertilized at least 4 times per year; fall, summer, early spring and late spring.

Weeds are generally split into two categories.

These help kill weeds that are already grown. Apply when needed, during the middle of the year, April-September.
Pre-emergent products kill weeds before they are able to grow above the soil. Timing is very important! Apply pre-emergents just before the soil reaches 55+ degrees, just before the seeds begin to germinate in the soil. Please follow the product label for mowing restrictions prior to and after herbicide applications as mowing can negatively impact the efficacy of the herbicide.
You can choose many different types of post-emergent products kill already-growing weeds. Note that some selective post-emergent will not harm foliage other than the target weed. While non-selective will kill any plant it comes in contact with, including your grass. Please be refer to the product label for mowing restrictions prior to and after herbicide applications.
