Now is the time to start thinking about that first fertilizer application of the year for your lawn. Even though there is rain and snow in the forecast here in St. Louis, the weather is still going to be warm later in the week.
The first fertilizer application that you put down should contain a pre emergent crabgrass control. It is very important that you get the first fertilizer application down before the crabgrass starts to germinate.
Our fertilizer program is a four step program. We fertilize the grass during the growing season in St. Louis. Typically the growing season is Spring and fall in the St. Louis area. We perform two fertilizer applications in the spring and two fertilizer applications in the fall. We do not fertilize during the hot summers in St. Louis. Fertilizing during the summer can damage the lawn and force it to grow when it should be dormant
