Time to Fertilize


Grass is a plant. All plants need help to grow. A fall fertilizer will help your grass roots grow stronger and will show its worth in the spring. If you are thinking of selling your home in the spring it might be something to think about. I know when I apply a fall fertilizer my grass springs back better. Get it springs. Fall is actually the most important time to fertilize as the nitrogen stays in the root system longer and phosphorous grows strong roots. Experts suggest you fertilize 4X a year to maintain healthy grass and I have read that you should not fertilize until after the 3rd cut in the spring. The 3 main ingredients in fertilizer are:

Nitrogen - is vital for healthy growth

Phosphorous - helps grow strong roots & resists rot

Potassium - for strength, low potassium results in stunted growth
