Lawn
It’s natural to fertilize your lawn in the spring, but don’t let the cooler temperatures of autumn fool you. Fall is the best time to fertilize the grass, even better than springtime. After the summer’s heat and humidity, grass regains its strength before winter with a good fall fertilizing. It also helps grass develop a thick and deep root system, so it can survive next summer’s heat.
