Before the next lawn growing season begins, you’d be wise to know the following.
Know square footage of your lawn. Most people overdo it when fertilizing their lawn as a result of not knowing the size of their lawn. Fertilizer and lawn pesticides, including herbicides, are applied based on square footage. Take time to accurately measure your lawn, record and save the measurement before spring. Doing so will allow you to purchase and use the correct amount of fertilizer and pesticides.
