Start in the early spring

If you want to have a strong healthy lawn for the rest of 2021, you may want to start fertilizing it in the early spring. Your grass and other plants will be hungry in the spring because they didn’t get enough food during the winter season. Fertilizing them will strengthen their roots, so they can grow well for the rest of the year. Our formula also feeds them with nutrients for improving strength and resistance against any conditions.

It is highly recommended for you to apply the fertilizer in the beginning of the spring season. We recommend a period between March and April.

Keep fertilizing in late spring

You should never stop the fertilizing process until the end of the spring season. At the end of the spring season, your grass will be busy growing and use a lot of stored energy. You need to keep all of these plants well-nourished, especially if you want to keep them blooming for the rest of the year.

In the late spring which is around April to June, we can keep fertilizing your Connecticut lawn on your residential or commercial property.

Between June and August, you can still put fertilizers on your lawn, so your plants can survive against heat and drought. Some essential nutrients for your grass are iron, phosphorus, nitrogen, and also potassium.
