The Q&A Archives: Grass not Greening Up

Question: My grass is a loacl grass seed product, lawn is 2 -1/2 years old, have regularly fertilized, also have sprinkler system, lawn is not greening up yet, most others lawns are. I do not remember this happening is past. Should I fertilize now? Thought ot was a bit early. Also when is best time for crabgrass preventer?

Answer: Pre emergent crabgrass control should be applied now, before the crabgrass seeds sprout. If your lawn is not greening up yet, it may still be a little cold in your yard. Regular feeding last year should have given the roots enough energy to produce new blades. Wait another 3-4 weeks before fertilizing. I think your lawn will green up when the soil warms a bit more. Best wishes with your lawn!
