Each round provides a step-by-step guide to keeping lawns healthy all year. 


Late Summer Feeding or Weed & Feed

Apply a granular fertilizer (straight fertilizer or weed & feed fertilizer) containing time-released nitrogen to promote root growth and repair summer stress.

A second blanket application of a liquid or granular herbicide (or use of weed & feed) is recommended to control broadleaf weeds such as dandelions.

Aeration is also an important part of fall-scheduled maintenance, allowing the soil to breathe and better absorb everything.
