Q: We just seeded a bermuda lawn earlier this year and its growing very well so far. How often I can fertilize it without risking damage? I really want to get as much coverage as possible before it goes dormant.
A: I don’t know if you have noticed, but lawns have started slowing their growth rate. Some of it is due to the heat but some of it is due to changing day length. At this point of the year, adding lots more fertilizer won’t increase growth substantially. I recommend you fertilizer one time between now and mid-September but nothing after September 15.
