Depending on how much water your lawn gets, try reapplying fertilizer every 6 to 8 weeks. Keep a close eye on your lawn. If it looks thick and green, you can probably skip eating. If it starts to look brown or black, give your lawn some TLC.
When it comes to feeding lawns, time matters. I recommend fertilizing your lawn four times a year with an organic slow-release fertilizer. Generally speaking, you should fertilize your lawn at least twice a year to ensure good overall health and keep your grass looking greener. However, if you fertilize at the wrong time or overtreat your grass, you could encourage weed growth or even burn it.
Apply lawn fertilizer in early spring once between February and April, when the grass begins to turn green and grow actively (around the time when the grass needs to be mowed for the first time). Fertilizing your fall lawn now will strengthen the roots and increase nitrogen storage for a green and healthy lawn next spring.
