Americans have all sorts of reputations, one being our love affair with the perfect lawn. The funny thing about it is that many of our lawn care habits actually create additional problems that need some sort of intervention.
It is a vicious lawn care cycle.
Fertilize, mow, spray, fertilize, mow, spray … why not just mow high and enjoy the clover?
No matter how many times agronomists warn us not to fertilize in the spring, products fly off the shelf in April and May.
Fall is the time to fertilize, if you must.
