When to Feed Your Lawn, –
The most important thing you can do for your yard is to feed it. While feeding your yard once a year will enhance its condition, feeding it four times a year will make it even healthier.
– Early Spring (February – April).
Yards wake up hungry in the spring. Feeding your yard in the spring enhances roots and gets it off to a good start prior to the heavy growing season. If you had crabgrass last year, apply a mix item, like Scotts ® Turf Home builder ® Stops ® Crabgrass Preventer with Yard Food that contains a pre-emergent to control crabgrass. An excellent guideline of thumb to follow: feed your yard in the spring around the very first time it needs cut.
– Late Spring (April – June).
Spring is lunch break for lawns. That’s why you want to provide the yard with a feeding created for this time of year.
Summertime (June – August).
Feeding your yard in the summertime protects and strengthens it against these issues. Lawns in warm-season turf areas should be fed over the summer months as they grow steadily from spring to fall.
-. Fall (September – November).
Fall brings back perfect growing conditions for your yard. Now the yard is ready to grow once again, and is looking for the nutrients it needs to recuperate from summer season damage. Some experts will say this is the single most crucial lawn feeding of the year.
