A guide to fertilizing your lawn

Protect your property's curb appeal with a lush, green lawn.

When to fertilize: According to lawn-care experts, most lawns need to be fertilized a minimum of two times each year, preferably fall and spring. Your local lawn and garden center can provide guidelines for the type of grass growing in your yard. The best time of day to apply fertilizer is in the late afternoon when the grass is dry.

The best fertilizer: The three numbers on a bag of fertilizer indicate the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, respectively, in the product. Nitrogen-rich fertilizers are great for established lawns. Phosphorus promotes root growth in new lawns. Potassium encourages overall plant health and is recommended when fertilizing in the fall.

How to fertilize: It's wise to buy or rent a broadcast spreader that will make the job go faster and smoother. Be sure to adjust the lever to match the recommended flow setting on the fertilizer bag. For best results, start at the outer edges of the lawn and work inward.
