Spring Garden Tips
Fertilizing Tips

Use the right type and amount of fertilizer at the right time. Even one application of fertilizer can reduce lawn weeds by as much as 50%. Improper fertilization can damage the lawn, increase the risk of disease and pollute the environment. Consider using a low nitrogen, slow release fertilizer. And never apply fertilizer to frozen soil. It washes off with rain or snow and ends up in our waterways.
