    I do my Spring clean-ups in late March and Fall clean-ups in September. I apply fertilizer during both of those clean-ups. My question is how many times and when should I apply fertilizer between the clean-ups????

    I do the same as you do however, I do ask my accounts if they would like be on a program. Most do and I fertilize 5-6 times throughout the season.
    In answer to your ? at least 2 more times. Push for more. Don't know what the laws are in NY, get licensed and certified if you have not done so. Here in Pa. it is the law. Any type of pesticide or herbicide in fertilizer IE (weed and feed). Whether it is enforced always opens a chance that you need to verify that you are. It's good business.
    Nothing like a pristine lawn in the end.
