Fertilizing

Fertilizing your lawn does more than just make your grass green. Of course it will make it grow too, but lots of things happen when you fertilize. Fertilizer makes grass seed germinate faster, and get started out of the ground. After the grass has a good start, fertilizer will make the grass get thicker. What most people want to know is how much fertilizer to use and when to apply it. Simply put, most grasses will benefit from four applications of fertilizer per year. Spread out 60 days apart starting in early spring approximately 30 days before the growing season starts in your area, continuing through the growing season until fall. Spring fertilizing gets the grass off to a fast start giving you that rich green color everyone wants. A word of warning though, don't use too much fertilizer, follow the listed guidelines on the bag, or these generic instructions. Too much fertilizer will cause excess growth, lead to Fungus growth and weaken the grass.
