How Often Should I Fertilize My Lawn?

Perfect green fertilized grass
 
You want to have the perfect green lawn, and you understand that in order for your grass to really thrive, it needs the help of some lawn fertilizer.
A healthy lawn needs nutrients, water, and the sun. You have no control over the sun, but you can water correctly and apply the right amount of fertilizer.

So you may be wondering: How often should I fertilize my lawn?
The answer you get may vary slightly depending on who you ask.
Everyone agrees you need to fertilize in the spring to help your lawn get started, and again in the fall to help your grass store up nutrients for over the winter. The number of times in between is where you may see some differing opinions.

How many times you fertilize may also be dependent on the health of your grass, the type of grass you have and where you live.
Always make sure to follow the instruction on the label of the fertilizer you will be using. The directions will vary depending on if you use an organic, water-soluble or synthetic fertilizer.
