Should I fertilize before or after seeding grass?
When seeding grass, the order in which you add the fertilizer and seeds doesn’t matter, but adding fertilizer at the time you seed a lawn is important. You can combine the fertilizer and seed and broadcast them together, or you can broadcast the seed and fertilizer separately, one immediately following the other.
What is the best time of year to fertilize lawn?
Fertilize in early spring, late spring or early summer, late summer and fall. Mow often in the summer to encourage new stems to develop. The stems weave together and will help your lawn resist weeds. Seed in midspring to midsummer.
What is the best time of year to plant grass seed?
Seed in early spring or early fall. Fertilize in early spring (after a mild winter) or late spring (after a cold winter), late summer and fall. Add small amounts of a shade-tolerant grass (such as fine fescue) or a wear-resistant grass (such as perennial ryegrass) to enhance a bluegrass lawn.
When should I fertilize my fescue lawn?
Fertilize in early spring (after a mild winter), late spring or early summer (after a cold winter), late summer and fall.
