How to feed your lawn?
Just as we require food to survive, so does your lawn. We recommend fertilizing your lawn three times per year.
First feeding should be in the spring once the snow melts. This feeding should help green up the sod.
The second feeding should be in mid-July when you are expecting rain or able to water the sod, to help combat weeds and improve overall plant health.
The last feeding should be in the fall before the first snow fall to help your turf withstand our harsh winter conditions.
