Summer is winding down in the Treasure Valley and it is an excellent time to fertilize your lawn. The summer heat has been stressful for your turf leaving it vulnerable to weeds and insects. Feeding your lawn now in the late summer has many advantages.
The first advantage for fertilizing in the late summer is that it will strengthen and protect against weeds and insects as well as any other stressors such as foot traffic. The second advantage to a late summer fertilization is that the cooler weather will produce new root growth and the nutrients from the fertilizer will help to feed the growth which will decrease the stress as it tries to recover and re-grow from the damage caused by the high summer temperatures.
Proper fertilization and weed control will not only improve the color, growth, and health of your lawn; it will also help your lawn be in the best possible shape to survive the coming winter.
