When to fertilize

It's a question many people start asking this time of year - when should I fertilize my lawn? For most, the answer is between the end of January and the end of March. Fertilizing later could mean a lot of time spent mowing throughout the summer. The Times News said, "For most small neighborhood lawns that have been fertilized for years, I would suggest buying a slow release fertilizer with a 4-1-2 ratio of nutrients." Before you go to the store, however, make sure you know the approximate square footage of your lawn so you know how much to buy!
