When to Feed Your Lawn

The most important thing you can do for your lawn is to feed it, but no two lawns are alike. Things such as your region and the amount of sun and shade your lawn receives will make a difference in what your lawn needs. There are however, some basic guidelines that can be helpful to follow. It’s important to remember that feeding your lawn once a year will improve its condition, but feeding it eight times a year will make it even healthier. Here is a simple feeding schedule that can be useful:
