yellow stripes in lawn - Knowledgebase Question

Walworth, Wi
Question by dldesigns1

after first fertilizing last year our lawn looked burnt from it. This year we thatched the lawn, improving the green for sure. We fertilized (granule) very mildly using a spreader and still see a few light green paths? It's growing but why do we see discoloring in areas?

Even though you were careful with your ferilizer spreader, it doesn't sound as though it's doing a very good job. One way to ensure this doesn't happen again is to use half of the fertilizer and apply it in a north/south direction and then apply the second half of the fertilizer in an east/west direction. This way you'll get even coverage and you should not have stripes in your lawn. Best wishes with your turfgrass!
