One of the very finest
times to feed established lawns is in early spring.....
in the North even before frost is out of the ground.
At this time plant nutrients can do the most good-needed
nourishment will be readily available for rapid
And there are other
points that make early lawn feeding a wise gardening
move. It's simple. All you have to do is apply
3 pounds of Lawn fertilzer per 100 square feet
of area. Spring rains will work the plant food
down to the feeding roots, making watering in
unnecessary. Also, early feeding is effective.
Complete feeding provides all the nutrients grass
must get from soil for best growth-a fact that's
mighty important when you want a lawn that's deeprooted,
thick, and luxuriant.
Remember, too, that
lawn feterlizer helps to develop deep-rooted lawns
and in this way increases the humus (organic material)
in soil. Soil becomes a better storehouse for
plant nutrients and moisture. Aeration is improved,
helping both root and top growth.
