When applying your winter plant and Ryegrass fertilizers, it is crucial to make sure you apply just the right amount, not too much or too little.
Many believe that applying extra fertilizer “can’t hurt,” but in reality, over-fertilizing your lawn can cause issues. One potential consequence is salt burn, which may kill patches of your hard-earned and beautiful Ryegrass. It can have similar effects on flowers or shrubs in areas of fertilization. On the other side, applying too little fertilizer can result in nutrient deficiencies such as low nitrogen. Nutrient deficiencies can impede or completely stall growth in the desired areas.
At DLC, we recommend applying fertilizer approximately every three to four weeks from November to February, but always make sure to follow the instructions on your chosen fertilizer. Utilizing a fertilizer spreader will also help to ensure even distribution as you move across your yard.
