Which Fertilizer Should I Use in Spring?

Fertilizing Spring
4 min read

Research indicates that lawns respond best when fed four times a year – in the early spring, late spring, summer, and fall. If you have wondered which fertilizer you should use in spring, look no further than the exceptional products available from Jonathan Green.

The Jonathan Green name has represented genetically superior grass seed, innovation, integrity, determination, and a commitment to excellence since 1881. Today, six generations later, we remain committed to producing superior lawn and garden products.

New American Lawn Care Plan

At Jonathan Green, we care about your lawn and want to make it as easy as possible for you to care for it. The easier it is the more likely you are to do it and be able to enjoy the results. In our New American Lawn Care Plan, we explain what to feed your lawn and when and how to do it.

If your lawn is plagued by crabgrass every year, we can help you create a better growing environment so that desirable grass can grow instead of crabgrass. For the best results, apply Jonathan Green Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer in spring. It controls crabgrass before and after it germinates and contains the newest technology available using Dimension® Crabgrass Control Herbicide. Dimension® is a clear, odorless and colorless weed control, so it won’t stain your hands, walkways, driveways, or the floor of your garage.

Late spring (and fall) are also a favorite time for broadleaf weeds and dandelions to actively grow. Apply Jonathan Green Veri-Green Weed & Feed Lawn Fertilizer, which feeds desirable grasses with 35% slow-release nitrogen fertilizer for up to 3 months and features a 3-way action that controls dandelion, clover, chick weed, and over 250 other kinds of broadleaf weeds, killing weeds down to the root.

You can also apply Jonathan Green Organic Lawn Food in spring (or summer or fall) on newly seeded/sodded or established lawns. It promotes strong grass growth and helps improve soil structure as well as the soil’s water holding capacity.

Jonathan Green has two other key products that can be applied on the same day, one after the other, and, since they are both organic soil enhancers, you can’t apply too much.  We recommend you spread these products twice a year, once in the spring and once again in late summer or early fall.

MAG-I-CAL® Soil Food helps balance the soil pH and, at the same time, helps the lawn grow greener and healthier. When the pH is balanced, the grass will be able to absorb minerals and nutrients that were previously locked in the soil and unavailable to the grass plants.

Love Your Soil® is a special formula of soil-reviving ingredients that encourage soil microbes to break down nutrients while, at the same time, loosening hard-packed soil for greater air, water, root and nutrient penetration. Love Your Soil® enhances root and root mass development and is effective on all turf grass varieties.

During the growing season from spring through fall, your lawn will perform best when fed three to four times. Learn more about which fertilizer you should use in the spring by visiting Jonathan Green online, or contact your nearest retail store for valuable lawn care advice.
