Fertilizing your lawn is one of the most important lawn care tasks you’ll take on this year and it’s one of the first steps you need to take in preparing your lawn for a successful growing season! Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most misunderstood lawn care tasks, especially during the early spring months.
Knowing why, when, what, and how to properly fertilize will help you achieve that lush, healthy lawn. So, here is what you need to know about spring fertilization and how to get (and keep) your lawn green, all year long!
Why Do I Need Spring Fertilizer?
Three reasons why spring fertilization is so important are:
When Is The Best Time To Apply Spring Fertilizer?
Fertilizing too early in the spring is essentially useless. If the ground is still frozen (or thawing), the fertilizer will not penetrate the soil, and it won’t reach the roots. As a general rule of thumb, you want to wait until the temperature reaches at least 50 degrees. When the grass starts growing, and the flowers start blooming, it’s prime time to apply that spring fertilizer.
What Is The Best Type Of Fertilizer To Use In The Spring?
A slow-release fertilizer that is high in nitrogen is going to be the best type to use in the spring. This will allow your grass to receive a steady amount of nutrients over an extended period of time. The nitrogen will aid in the photosynthesis process, resulting in healthy and thick grass. Beware: the more nitrogen there is in the fertilizer, the quicker the grass will grow, and the more often you will need to mow!
