Late Summer Fertilization Treatment

This Time of year we apply weed control and either a granular or liquid fertilizer –depending on  your lawns specific needs.  Whether granular or liquid your fertilizer treatment included a balanced blend of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and iron.  We apply up to one pound of nitrogen to give it its maximum green.  A good fertilizing requires good watering to be effective and prevent lawn burn.  We expect you will water your lawn well after  treatment.  Due to the record breaking hot and dry summer we are having you will need to water your lawn more than usual.  -4 days per week(5 to 6 days for sandy soils).  25 minutes for most pop-up spray sprinklers or 60 minutes for most rotor type sprinklers.  Mowing your lawn high (3 inches) and regularly is a great way to promote strong lawn growth and save water.
