Turf Calendar 

Mid February - Fertilizer Treatment w/ pre-emergent - High nitrogen fertilizer to help rejuvenate grass and help with spring green up. Pre-emergent to help keep spring and summer weeds at bay (including crabgrass).

Late March to April - Fertilizer Treatment w/ pre-emergent – Similar to the first application but with less nitrogen to discourage summer diseases like brown patch.

Late May to June - Fertilizer Treatment with Iron - This is a low nitrogen, high potash (potassium) fertilizer. A low nitrogen level is applied now to prevent stress on the grass and to discourage disease. Iron helps to green up the grass. 

August - Lime Treatment - This is to restore the acidity of the soil back to normal. Over the year, as grass removes nutrients and clippings decay, acid builds up in the soil. The goal for this is a pH of 6.5

September To October (Timed with Seeding and Aeration) - Starter Fertilizer Treatment - Seeding and Aeration Time! High Everything! Gives the new (and old) grass everything it could need to grow fast and strong.

Mid December – Sustained Release Winter Fertilizer Treatment - Last treatment before winter hits and the grass slows down. Provides plenty of nutrients to promote good root development to survive the winter and stay green.

Fescue Turfgrass
These are some general guidelines to help you make decisions on how best to care for your lawn. Of course every yard is different, and so is every growing season. You should always make adjustments based on the current conditions.
