Help Your Lawn before Summer
Here is an important root-building tip to help your lawn standup to what could be a hot, dry summer. I know it is not going to surprise you that I am going to tell you to feed your lawn even if you have already fed it one time this spring. Even though I am a Scotts person now, I gave this same advice years ago when I was a County Extension Agent. Here is why.
You know how hungry you get when you’ve had a long, strenuous day outdoors? Well, right now your lawn’s feeling the same way. It’s actively growing, sprouting new blades, forming new grass plants. It’s working hard… huffing and puffing in a quiet way. Your lawn needs a good feeding now, and the best way to feed it is with Scotts Turf Builder, Scotts GreenMAX, or Scotts Natural Lawn Food. (Click here for more info.)
What’s so special about these lawn foods? Well for one thing, they all have the kind of slow, gradual feeding so every blade of grass gets the nutrients it needs. This feeding will green up your lawn in days, thicken it, strengthen it, and help it stand up to the intense heat to come. This is the right thing to do even if your lawn is dark, green now because this feeding is also about expanding your grass plant roots.
Stick your head out the door and listen to your lawn. It’s saying feed me. Feed me this weekend.
