When it comes to feeding your lawn, doing it four times a year is crucial to its growth and development. Feeding it in Early Spring (Feb-April) are when the lawns wake up hungry and are ready to eat. Late spring (April-June) is like lunchtime for your lawn. It's been busy using its stored energy for growth and needs more food. Summer (June-August) is tough on grass. Heat, drought, foot traffic, and insects stress it out so feeding it helps strengthen against these issues. Fall (September-November) has your ideal growing conditions for your lawn. Cool nights, warm days, ample rainfall, and morning dew just as good as it gets for grass. Its ready to grow and needs its nutrients to do so.
