Blue Fecue Grasses - Knowledgebase Question

Question by ag7

I have several several blue fescue grasses that have increasingly begun to lose their color and turning rather 'pale.' Is there any fertilizer/plant food I can give them to bring back the color - and to maintain color throughout the growing season?

Could be lack of water that's turning the blades pale, or it could indicate a need for feeding. Grasses always respond quickly to nitrogen fertilizer. Feed your lawn with a 3-1-2 ratio of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (the 3 numbers on the fertilizer label). Water well after applying fertilizer and you should see results within a week.
