Applying lawn fertilizer correctly is crucial to its effectiveness. They need to fall down to soil level, and wet grass prevents that because the granules stick to the wet foliage. Lawn fertilizers that contain post-emergent herbicides, such as weed and feed, need to be applied to wet grass. This allows the granules to stick to the weed foliage and kill the weed. Apply these fertilizers is in the morning when dew is still present on the grass.

Water the lawn if it is not already wet. Set up sprinklers and irrigate until the foliage is soaking wet.

Fill the hopper of your broadcast spreader with weed-and-feed fertilizer. Read the manufacturer's instructions for the correct application rate and set the dial on your spreader to that setting.

Push the spreader in front of you and walk in straight, parallel paths across your lawn to dispense the fertilizer. Continue until the entire lawn is covered.

Refrain from walking on your lawn for two days to allow the granules sufficient time to kill the weeds. Walking across the lawn may brush the granules off of the weeds.

Fertilizer Kill Your Grass?

Fertilizer can damage or kill your grass if it stays in direct contact with its foliage for a long period of time. If your lawn grass is suffering from high salinity, you can flush some of the salt out of the soil by heavily irrigating it with 6 inches of water applied over the surface of the affected area. Water the affected area until the soil is nearly saturated to a depth of several inches. Allow a day for some of the water to drain away and repeat this process one to two more times. The best time of day to fertilize grass is early in the morning or late in the evening when air temperatures are lower. Avoid using fertilizer when the ground is wet from dew, rain or recent irrigation to ensure that your fertilizer does not burn your lawn.

Apply weed-and-feed fertilizer in the spring or fall when the weeds are actively growing. If they are mature, the product will not be as effective. Refrain from mowing your lawn two days before and two days after application. Apply when rain is not forecast for at least two days. Rain will wash off the granules and they will not be as effective.
