When should I fertilize my lawn this spring. Someone told me I should wait until after the second time I mow the yard. What is your suggestion?

That someone was right. Your lawn won't be able to use the fertilizer until it has begun growing this spring. Or, if it is a new lawn, it needs to establish a good root system before it can use the available nutrients. So, waiting until new growth appears on an established lawn, or until after you've mowed a new lawn twice will be the best time to apply your spring feeding.
