Hopefully we’ve seen the end of the 100 plus degree days. So now it’s time for fall fertilization.
To insure you have the proper fertilizer mix of N (nitrogen) P (phosphorous) and K (potassium or potash), test your soil with an over-the-counter testing kit, available from your local garden supply or take a soil sample to your local AgriLife Extension Agent for testing. Select the best fertilizer for your soil and sod. If you still have questions, contact your local garden supply professionals. When applying, follow all instructions on the packaging and water in as recommended. In addition to a winter watering regiment, this is the best way to prepare for cool weather dormancy and protect against Winter Kill.
If you put your lawn to sleep healthy in the fall, it will wake up healthy in the spring!
