Lawns need proper nutrition and the most important thing you can do is to feed yours.
A well-fed lawn is stronger, which means it has a better root system to combat heat, cold, drought, mowing, foot traffic and other stresses.
That’s a lot from simply feeding it. And while fertilizing only once a year will improve the condition of the lawn, a well-fed lawn that receives 4 feedings a year will do even better.

Your lawn is busy using up stored energy in the spring. Therefore it is important to supply the lawn with a feeding designed for this time of year. Since this is also a time when broadleaf weeds are actively growing, a combination fertilizer with broadleaf weed control (a “weed and feed”) is ideal for lawns where weeds are a problem.

  • Kills dandelions and other broadleaf weeds.

  • Builds thick green turf from the roots up.

  • Apply in late spring April – June.

Note: Do not use on dichondra, St. Augustinegrass, creeping bentgrass, bahia, or centipedegrass lawns.

Scotts Lawn Pro Step 4 Lawn Fertilizer

Fall is about summer recovery. Now the lawn is ready to grow again, and is looking for the nutrients it needs to recover from summer damage. Some experts will say this is the single most important lawn feeding of the year.

The final feeding is applied right before the winter months when grass is prepping for a winter nap. This will strengthen roots and increase nitrogen storage for an early spring green up and a healthier lawn next year. If weeds are a problem, you can apply a fall fertilizer with weed control.

How to Use: Apply to a wet or dry lawn on a calm day. No need to water in, however, during dry periods, watering will hasten greening. For best results, apply using a Scotts® spreader.

When to Apply: Apply in fall to any grass type.

Where to Use: Apply to any grass type.
