    A well-fed lawn is healthier, which means it has a better root system to combat heat, cold, drought, mowing, foot traffic and other stresses.  One of the cornerstones of creating a well-fed lawn is Lawn Fertilization.  While this can be done only once a year, it's recommended that Lawn Fertilization be done more than that in North Carolina.  A typical Lawn Fertilization schedule for the Tall Fescue that is so prevalent in Wake County, North Carolina is:

    • March-May - Do Not Fertilize your lawn.  
    • June-August - Do Not Fertilize your lawn.
    • September-November - Fertilize your lawn in mid-September, and again in November, at about the time the grass is green, but not actively growing.
    • December-Febuary - Fertilize with 1 pound of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet in February.

    Remember, it's always best to have your Soil tested to be able to analyze what nutrients are missing.  But, if you can't do that, then a good solution is to apply a complete nitrogen-phosphorous-potassium (N-P-K) turf grade fertilizer with a 3-1-2 or 4-1-2 ratio.  Fertilize with 1 pound of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet.
