Over-application of fertilizers is a source of water pollution. Use the proper amount of fertilizer to keep your lawn green and prevent algae blooms in our lakes and streams.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. Spring and fall are the best times to test your soil! Contact your local Extension Office for an inexpensive soil test that will help you determine which, if any, nutrients your soil needs.
