Before you add any fertilizers to your yard this spring… first do a soil test. Your yard may already have the nutrients it needs, saving you money and time! It’s a waste of money to apply fertilizer to your lawn if it doesn’t need it. The only way to know how much fertilizer your lawn needs is to have your soil tested. Contact your local Extension Office for an inexpensive soil test that will help you determine which, if any, nutrients your soil needs.
