When Should My Lawn Receive Fertilizer?

In the mid-Atlantic region, as well as throughout most parts of the U.S., the best time to begin fertilizing your lawn is in the spring when the soil temperature reaches 55 degrees fahrenheit. You’ll know this because the lilacs will begin to blossom and the grass will start to grow. In general, this means the first feeding should take place somewhere within the months of March-April.

The second feeding should happen about four weeks later–early to mid-May. Fertilization should then continue every four to six  weeks through October. A fall feeding is critical since grass continues to grow and spreads its roots downward, needing fertilizer. In many ways, this is the most important application of the year.

All of Moyers Lawn Services Programs provide 7 step applications and use slow-release fertilizers to break down the nutrients over a longer period. This permits a steadier consistent feeding.

Nitrogen is extremely important to the process, but the secret is to keep the lawn as green as possible without growing it too fast.
