A properly fertilized lawn will not only look nice, but will be more resistant to diseases like leaf rust and will also fend off weeds by out-competing them. Three basic questions to ask when it comes to lawn fertilization are: how much should I apply, when should I apply it and what kind of fertilizer should I use? Remember to consider the desired quality level you want for your lawn when considering these questions. If you want a ‘low maintenance’ lawn, you need to be sure you have a grass species that can tolerate low fertility and minimal irrigation.
