Estrella McNally neilsperry.comHow to answer this question: Many variables are involved, such as the type of grass, rainfall amount, and where you live in Texas. Your grass is pale and sluggish at a time of year when it should be growing more vigorously, that’s when you should think about feeding it. You will need fertilize bermudas and St. Augustine if you see seed heads. Quality fertilizers should last 8-12 weeks. However, there are some that can be used for longer periods. For most warm-season grasses (St. Augustine, bermuda, zoysia, etc.) In most areas of Texas, you can fertilize on April 1, June 1, August 1, and October 1, respectively. You could get by in North Texas with just three feeds, April 15, June 15, and September 15. Gray leaf spot can be a serious problem in St. Augustine so you might only need to feed your grass three times a year. The September or very early October feeding is one of the really critical elements of good lawn management for any type of turf, so don’t forget it. Fescue, ryegrass and other cool-season grasses are fertilized during September, November and February. Ryegrass and fescue can be fertilized at the end of February. Grace C.

Weed and feed products are bad for trees and shrubs, and the environment, because they’re post emergent herbicides. Spot weed-and–feed treatments are possible for turf-only or established landscapes. Warning! Most weed-and–feeds include Atrizine. This burns the roots of shrubs and young trees, and can kill them. Bermuda grass. It’s fatal to several tree species, including Post Oaks. Atrizine could make its way to our homes. Drinking waterIt is also a problem. Close inspection of the bag will reveal that it warns against being used underneath drip-lines from shade trees.
