How To Properly Fertilize A Fescue Grass Lawn

Payment methods
There are few grasses more satisfying to fertilize than fescue grass. This is especially true in the late winter when most of the landscape is still leafless and bare. Within a matter of days, the fescue is dark green and growing energetically. Fescue lawns thrive during these cooler periods and will respond immediately to a steady amount of fertilizer in the spring and fall.

But remember, applying excessive fertilizer will not make your lawn excessively green; rather, it will only grow faster and require more mowing. The most efficient way to fertilize is to use the dry, granular fertilizers sold in large bags.

Fertilizer recommendations:
*3-5 pounds of actual nitrogen per 1000 square feet per year.
*Three applications: late winter, mid-spring, early fall
*Use slow-release fertilizers in mid-spring and early fall
*Water approximately 1 inch after fertilizing
