Fertilizer Application Best Practices


Fertilizing your landscape properly is a big factor in the health and overall lush quality of your yard for the spring and summer. When you fertilize your space at the right time and in the right way, your landscape will reap the rewards for the months ahead. 

What are some best practices when it comes to fertilizing?

The Earlier the Better
As soon as the first signs of spring arrive, be sure to schedule and plan your fertilizer application. In the Kansas City area, this can happen as early as March. Keep an eye on the weather as you make your plan, and never fertilize until all threats of frost are gone from the forecast. When you fertilize your lawn in the early days of spring, you will help to quickly green up your grass, and keep it strong well into fall. This early technique will also help your landscape grow thick and lush, making you the envy of the neighborhood.

Let it Soak
A few days before you fertilize, give your yard a light watering. Let that water sit a few days, and once your lawn is dry, apply your fertilizer. A day or so after application, repeat the same sprinkler process, letting the fertilizer really soak into the ground. You can also time your fertilizer application with the weather between days of light rain in the early spring.
