Summer Fertilizing



When it comes to fertilizing “warm season” grass the best time to do this would be early summer. This will give your grass a healthy boost to grow thick and happy. Warm season grass grows best at about 70 degrees. Fertilizing in the early summer will help your grass be more heat and drought resistant. Warm-season grasses include Bermudagrass, St. Augustinegrass, Centipedegrass, Zoysiagrass, Bahiagrass and Carpetgrass. They are often called southern grasses because they grow best in hot summer areas and lack the winter hardiness of the cool-season grasses.


When fertilizing you need to make sure that you don’t apply to much, so you don’t risk burning your lawn. Grass can get stressed out during the hot summer months, so you need to be cautious when applying and use the correct fertilizer that is for the summer months and follow the instructions exactly.


If you have “cool season” grass, you do not want to fertilize in the summer. The best time to fertilize “cool season” grass would be in the spring and the fall. The most common types of “cool season” grasses are Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, fine fescue, and tall fescue. You'll often find these grass types mixed for different needs and uses, such as high traffic, sunny, or dense shade conditions. “Cool season” grasses are grass types that thrive in areas with cold winters and hot summers.
