3 min read

If you plan to feed your lawn this spring, consider the best lawn fertilizer from Jonathan Green. The result will be a beautiful green, healthy lawn for you and your family.

Jonathan Green has been growing beautiful, dark-green lawns since 1881.  We supply genetically superior cool-season grass seed and other lawn and soil care products to commercial sod growers and independent home and garden retailers in all areas of the United States where cool-season lawn grasses – Kentucky Bluegrass, Tall Fescue, Perennial Ryegrass, and Fine Fescues – are grown.

We supply grass seed, organics, and weed, insect and disease control products to both the independent retailer and professional lawn care markets. We rigorously test all of our products to ensure that they perform to the highest standards in order to transform your lawn and help it thrive.

Springtime Lawn Care

When your lawn and soil are in harmony, the natural balance is restored, and this will protect your lawn against most insects, weeds, and turf diseases, and improve the heat and cold tolerance of your grass. The soil will become more permeable and alive with beneficial microbial organisms, allowing water, air and grass roots to penetrate into the soil more deeply, establishing a better foundation for the grass to flourish.

March or April – Early spring is the perfect time to apply Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer. The product contains the newest technology, Dimension® Crabgrass Control Herbicide, which will control crabgrass all season long. It also provides the nutrients required for a beautiful, green, thick lawn. Veri-Green Lawn Food can be applied up to four weeks later than other crabgrass preventers. Apply it to a dry lawn before a rain, and water it in after application.

May or June – In late spring, you should apply Veri-Green Weed & Feed Lawn Fertilizer. Not only will this it provide your lawn with everything it needs to grow green and strong, but it will also control clover, dandelions, and more than 250 types of hard-to-kill broadleaf weeds. Apply Veri-Green Weed & Feed to moist grass. Don’t water the treated areas for 48 hours after application because water will wash off the weed-killing material. Avoid applying if rain is expected within 48 hours after treatment.

Early or Late Spring – Jonathan Green Corn Gluten Weed Preventer plus Lawn Food helps prevent the growth of certain broadleaf weeds (dandelions, clover, chickweed, etc.) and grassy weeds (crabgrass, etc.). The patented, highly concentrated corn gluten it is made of works just as well as many synthetic crabgrass control herbicides. Organic Weed Preventer will quickly green up the lawn and release organic proteins into the soil to encourage root development. Apply this fertilizer with weed control in the early spring and again in later spring, summer, and fall, but do not seed the lawn for 60-90 days after application.

Whether you have a newly seeded lawn or an established lawn, you should choose the best fertilizer from Jonathan Green to feed it with during the spring growing season to keep the grass vibrant on the surface and healthy down into its roots.
