How do I rescue my lawn in the spring?

Is it better to fertilize before or after mowing?

This will ensure that the fertilizer, weed & feed, etc. will reach the soil beneath your lawn and help give you better results from your application of fertilizer.

This will help make sure that the application is spread out, and broken up to better be absorbed by your lawn. We would also recommend not mowing your lawn for 1-3 weeks after your application (especially if granules are used instead of a liquid application).
