If you have a lush tall fescue lawn, you probably want to keep it that way. We discussed the importance of pre-emergent last week, but if you have tall fescue, it is imperative that you fertilize this time of year!
Tall fescue does best in warm climates, like here in Georgia. It can grow in several different types of soil and is resilient to drought. Simply Green Lawn Care encourages treatments now, to promote the healthiest, best looking lawn possible.
Fertilizing this time of year isn’t an arbitrary decision, however. There is a lot of science and reasoning behind it. We have put together a list of reasons why you should fertilize now for the best results later.
- Fertilizing now will promote a greener, more vibrant lawn in the spring! This has been proven season after season. Fertilizing in February will provide you with a rewarding spring and summer season of rich, green fescue.
- It can help avoid brown patches in your lawn. Fescue is subject to brown patches during periods of excessive heat and moisture. Living in the south, this is almost inevitable with high temperatures and humidity.
- Fescue does not recover well on it’s own. If the lawn has had a lot of foot traffic or wear from pets, fertilization is a necessity.
- Fertilization in warm weather is not advisable; doing this can prevent necessary nutrients from getting to the roots of the grass.
