A well-fed lawn is a healthy lawn; it has a better root system to combat heat, cold, drought, mowing, foot traffic and other stresses.
There are some recommended feeding times:
- Early Spring- pre-emergent + food; this feeds your lawn to help strengthen its roots before it’s growing season begins and it helps combat crab grass before it gets its start.
- Late Spring- weed-n-feed; your lawn is using up its stored energy by this time and feeding it now helps it gain strength for the summer. It also attacks the weeds that are starting to grow at this time.
- Summer- The heat, drought, foot traffic and possible insects, all stress out your lawn. Feeding it at this time will help it stay strong and survive this high stress period.
- Fall- The weather conditions in the fall allow for your grass to start growing again without a lot of stress. It will need replenishment of nutrients that it spent in the summer. Feeding it now will strengthen roots, preparing them for winter dormancy and a strong start next spring.
