Just like people need nutrients and water to survive, so does your lawn. Feeding your lawn through fertilization helps it stay green and grow thick. Maintaining a thick, healthy lawn also helps prevent weed seeds from sprouting.
The best time to fertilize your Charlottesville lawn is in the spring, when the soil temperature reaches 55 degrees. You’ll know when the soil warms up to 55 because the lilacs begin to blossom and the grass starts growing. Here in Charlottesville, we apply fertilizer to your lawn starting in mid April.
