  • Now is a Great Time to Fertilize Your Lawn and Control Weeds

    Posted on August 31, 2015

    Prepare now for a Labor Day fertilizer application to the lawn. If you do three applications of fertilizer per year, they should be on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.  Fall is the best time to apply herbicides for weed control and September is the only time of year when weed and feed products are actually timed right for both the weed control and the fertilization.  DO NOT apply herbicides to lawns planted in August or September.
