A few common questions on Spring fertilizer applications:
Q: When is the best time to put down Crabgrass Preventer?
A: It is best to apply Crabgrass preventer before the Crabgrass germinates, which would be late February through early April.
Q: How soon after spreading Crabgrass Preventer can grass seed be applied?
A: We recommend waiting four months between spreading Crabgrass Preventer and planting grass seed. The chemicals used to prevent the Crabgrass from germinating will also prevent the grass seed from germinating.
Q: What is the best type of fertilizer to use in the spring?
A: Applying a high nitrogen fertilizer like our 32-3-8 will get your grass green and growing in no time. 12-12-12 and 8-32-16 are also great fertilizers to use if you are planting new grass and want to get established root growth.
