An effective fertilizing program promotes a dense, healthy turf that is much less likely to have heavy weed populations. Spring and fall fertilizers are the most important! Please see the tips below for an effective fertilizing program:
Q: When to start fertilizing?
A: 2-3 weeks after green up, apply the first application of fertilizer. By doing this, the lawn will achieve a darker color and look better sooner. Ensure the ground is fully thawed, and there are no more calls for freezing temperatures in the forecast. Also make sure that the lawn will be able to be watered on a regular basis.
Do not apply fertilizer until the turf is actively growing and can readily use the nutrients. Reasons for this are:
- To not encourage weed growth
- To reduce the loss of nutrients due to erosion
- To not encourage rapid, succulent growth that will be easily damaged by the cold
If the weather gets into a repeated cycle of temperatures warm enough to start top growth, but too short in duration to allow the newly developed leaves to provide carbohydrates to the roots, the roots can die from lack of food.
Q: How to maintain nutrients in the lawn?
Fertilizing during the summer months must be applied carefully so as to not burn the turf.
Q: How to prepare the turf for winter?
A: This is done in early September and is the most important fertilization of the year.
- It gives the lawn hardiness and provides nutrients
- Helps establish a strong root to survive a long winter
- The stored nutrients also provide the grass with a much needed energy boost in the springtime
Q: Can my pet go on the lawn after you fertilize?
Q: How soon should I water after the fertilizer is applied?
A: The sooner the better. The fertilizer should never be left for longer than 24 hours on a lawn without being watered in. If you are going to be out of town, please call and inform the office staff. If you have already watered your lawn, and our employees apply fertilizer, it is ok to wait until the following day to water it in.
