A lot of homeowners are eager to get their lawn fertilized to help jump start the green growth, but this isn't the best advice to follow. Kentucky Blue Grass and many other grasses shouldn't be fertilized until they are actively growing. Fertilizing early doesn't get the grass growing any quicker. In fact, it can hurt the grass by encouraging too much top growth in the beginning at the expense of root growth causing a weaker root system. This should be avoided. However, you can put out a fall application of fertilizer to help encourage quicker growth in the Spring. Once you do fertilize in the Spring, make sure to put it out evenly and avoid putting too much out or you might burn the lawn. Here's to another wonderful year of beautiful lawns.
