It’s the first week of April - the ultimate time to get busy with my Lawn Fertilization Schedules.
If my emails are any indication, though, people seem to be employing some “creative avoidance” on getting started. So …
- Even if you missed the Early Green-up – get busy!
- Even if it’s only been 30 days since you applied the Early Green-up – get busy!
- Even if you’ve still got a lot of weeds – get busy!
- Even if it rained just the other day – get busy! And lightly water in the application anyway!!
- Even if you haven’t core-aerated – get busy!
- Even if you’re switching from synthetic to organic – get busy!! And I recommend my Organic Schedule!!
- Even if you’re changing from organic to synthetic – get busy!
- Even if you haven’t applied a compost top-dressing – get busy!
I can think of only a single “Even if…” that should keep you from working in the April fertilization. That’s if the Early Green-up with a bona fide 15-5-10 was put down within just the past two weeks.
But you only need 30 days between the applications. So if you were a couple weeks late getting down the Early Green-up per my schedule, mark your calendar for April 15!
If you want to debate me with any other “what if,” give me a call on this weekend’s radio shows. I love a challenge.
And, by the way, you can also get busy with lots of other projects.
- Mulch? Get busy!
- Aeration? Get busy!
- Planting? Anything and everything? – Get busy!
- Even tomatoes? Yes, you’re a little late, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? Get busy!
- Compost top-dress? Yes, and not just lawns. Seriously … get busy!
- Pruning fruit trees? Sure … you can think of it as a cleanup. So get busy!!
