Time to Fertilize Your Lawn

Beautiful lawns don't just happen. They take care and a lot of nitrogen. Ideally your lawn should be fertilized four times each year--twice about a month apart in late spring or early summer and again twice about a month apart in late summer or early autumn. If you use a mulching lawn mower, you can skip the second late season fertilizing. This is because grass clippings are high in nitrogen and when left on the lawn act as a slow release fertilizer.
