It’s officially spring on Monday also my 30th Birthday…. AHHHH I am not sure how I feel about that. I am kinda freaking out inside I don’t feel like I should be turing 30!!! So though I would help you guys not waste money on fertilizers that don’t work well. Have you ever had lawn envy?? Well, NO MORE I am going to show you the best 4 step system to have the greenest healthies law in the neighborhood. Honestly, IFA has the BEST fertilizing system. It is a 4 step system you will want to do. You can Start the first step now! So these Pictures are from last year after the first step.
This is our yard now we are going to be starting our 4 step system now! in about a month it will look like the Pic above!
In most areas of Utah and throughout the Intermountain West, March to mid-April is the best time to start the steps to an amazing lawn (or late January to mid-February in St. George and Southern Utah).
by doing an application of a Crabgrass & Spurge Preventer our favorite is the IFA brand, is step one in getting a beautiful weed-free lawn. The pre-emergent fertilizer provides a weed barrier, killing weeds as they germinate from the seeds that have lain dormant in your lawn all winter. If they are killed now, they won’t become a problem later this spring and summer.
Second step is about 6-7 weeks later is the ideal time to apply step two of your lawn.
At this time your lawn is ready for its next feeding and the herbicide on the fertilizer will kill any dandelions that are appearing in your lawn.
Third step Sometime around the middle of June to the fourth of July is the best time to apply step three — spring and summer fertilizer. This step is one of the most important in your lawn care program. Applying this fertilizer during this period of time will help your lawn continue to be dark green under the stress of the summer heat.
The IFA Spring and Summer Fertilizer contains slow release nitrogen and an Omnicote application of iron, manganese and zinc. Omnicote is an IFA exclusive process by which iron and other important micronutrients, needed for good lawn health and performance, are applied to each individual fertilizer pellet. The Omnicote coating ensures that all of the micronutrients are evenly distributed over the entire lawn allowing for maximum nutrient uptake, which will maintain its beautiful green color and efficient water utilization.
From Labor Day until late October is the time to apply step four — fall and winter fertilizer, the final step to your lawn care program. This is the most important lawn feeding of the year. Fertilizing at the later time of year produces extra greening and little top growth. Most of the lawn’s food energy, supplied by the fertilizer, is stored in the roots to be utilized over the winter and provide next year’s early spring green-up power.
IFA Step Four Fall application, containing Omnicote iron, will give you a nice green lawn up to Halloween and beyond.
I hope you this help you guys this year to have the greenest and best law everyone will be envious of! I hope you all have an amazing day. Love you all.
