An early spring feeding helps grass green-up after winter. You should feed around the first time you mow your grass.
Feeding now prepares grass for summer stress by thickening the blades on top and building deep roots below.
An early fall feeding replenishes the nutrients lost in the harsh summer months for quicker recovery. You should feed when your grass comes out of dormancy.
Late fall is the best feeding time because it builds strong deep roots and prepares grass for winter. You should feed when all the leaves have fallen.
Regular feedings provide the nutrients your lawn needs to look its best and withstand the stresses of weeds, heat, drought and family activity.
Feeding your lawn twice in the spring and twice in the fall helps strengthen it to crowd out weeds and protect against heat and drought. There are Nitrogen-rich lawn foods that can be applied to any grass type and many products are kid and pet friendly when used as directed. If you want to kill dandelions and other major lawn weeds* while you feed, you can apply Weed & Feed products. *See label for listed weeds.
Mowing at a higher height allows the grass to grow in thick and develop a strong, deep root system. Leaving grass clippings on the lawn helps to recycle plant nutrients back into the soil.
Well-fed lawns use water more efficiently than their unfed counterparts but you still need to water your lawn! When grass needs water, it will let you know by wilting or dulling in color. Try to take advantage of nature’s sprinkler instead of your own as often as possible and rely on the rain to water your lawn.
Reseeding bare areas in your lawn helps keep it thick and prevents weeds from taking hold. There are number of combination grass seed products available that are great for different kinds of lawns. Try Scotts EZ Seed products!
