Our fertilization service is not a one-and-done deal. Depending on your lawn, it may require fertilization every six to eight weeks.

FERTILIZE - four times a year:
Late February-Early March - apply a simple 15-5-10 for an early green-up. Most companies that make slow-release fertilizers also make a non slow-release 15-5-10 that provides for a quick two-week green up before we get to the heart of the fertilizer schedule.

WARNING: Some people will be tempted to use a weed-and-feed at this time, but if you've been following the GardenLine herbicide schedule, there should never be a need. However, spot weed-and-feed treatments are recommended for those with turf-only landscapes or landscapes that have been established for many years. Most weed-and-feeds contain Atrizine which burns roots of young trees and shrubs. 

Late March-Early April - apply slow-release 3-1-2 ratio fertilizers. 
Recommended formulations:

  • 19-4-10Nitro Phos Super Turff
  • 18-4-6Fertilome Southwest Greenmaker
  • 18-0-6Fertilome's Zero Phosphate Formula
  • 15-5-10Southwest Fertilizer Premium Gold
  • 20-0-10Bonide Premium Lawn Food

Late June-Early July - apply slow-release 3-1-2 ratio fertilizers. 
(recommended formulations 19-5-9, 19-4-10, 18-4-6, 15-5-10.) 

October-November - apply winterizer formulas for winter hardiness. Ratios vary, but make sure they are "winter" or "fall" formulas designed for southern grasses. 
(examples: 18-6-12, 8-12-16, 10-5-14) Will make lawns winter-hardy. 

June-September - if turfgrass looks yellow (chlorosis) or necrotic, use an application of either granular or liquid iron. Once a year should be enough.
