Tips for lawn fertilizing

By Mary Beth Breckenridge Published: November 1, 2013

Fertilizing your lawn this weekend? Check out these tips from The Family Handyman:

-- Fill the spreader in the driveway, not on the lawn. Spilled fertilzer can kill grass.

-- Follow the coverage guidance on the bag.

-- Rinse the spreader after use with a garden hose. Otherwise the metal parts can rust and freeze up.

-- Seal partial bags of fertilizer with duct tape, and store in a dry place. It will keep the fertilizer from lumping together.

-- If you’ve reseeded some areas, cover them with plastic before fertilizing the rest of the lawn so you won’t burn the new seedlings.
