    When is it okay to fertlize lawns again?

    I know some of you guys fertilize 2 - 3 times per year? What's the months you guys fertilize and what do you use? 29-3-4, 10-10-10?

    Is it okay to fertilize now in July or is it too hot?

    We fert 4 times a year here. And some are doing it 5 to 6 times. And its never to hot to put down fert,as long as the turf is getting water. There are so many different ratios of fert its hard to say what to use. But generally its a 3-1-2 ratio.
