My lawn just turned green and it looks great. How can I maintain it looking this good? Do I need to fertilize it now (did one in mid feb. weed and feed 23-0-4)or should I wait for later time?
Last, how can I make it look greener?

I think you're doing everything right on schedule. In general, we recommend feeding when it is about 50% green, with a slow-release, high nitrogen fertilizer, with a second application six to eight weeks later. You've fed once in mid-February with the weed and feed so you can feed again now and, if you'd like, a third application can be made in another six weeks. Aside from the regular applications of fertilizer, the greenest lawns are those receiving adequate water and being mowed regularly. Good luck with your lawn!
