Fertilize Your Tall Fescue Now!
If you have a lush tall fescue lawn, you probably want to keep it that way. We discussed the importance of pre-emergent last week, but if you have tall fescue, it is imperative that you fertilize this time of year!
Tall fescue does best in warm climates, like here in Georgia. It can grow in several different types of soil and is resilient to drought. Simply Green Lawn Care encourages treatments now, to promote the healthiest, best looking lawn possible.
Fertilizing this time of year isn’t an arbitrary decision, however. There is a lot of science and reasoning behind it. We have put together a list of reasons why you should fertilize now for the best results later.
- Fertilizing now will promote a greener, more vibrant lawn in the spring! This has been proven season after season. Fertilizing in February will provide you with a rewarding spring and summer season of rich, green fescue.
- It can help avoid brown patches in your lawn. Fescue is subject to brown patches during periods of excessive heat and moisture. Living in the south, this is almost inevitable with high temperatures and humidity.
- Fescue does not recover well on it’s own. If the lawn has had a lot of foot traffic or wear from pets, fertilization is a necessity.
- Fertilization in warm weather is not advisable; doing this can prevent necessary nutrients from getting to the roots of the grass.

Hello, I didn't catch my service techs name today, but wanted to let you know what a great job he did today, please pass this along. His service was wonderful and he was very polite, I truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work! And thank you!
I have been with these guys for one whole season. 99.9% of the weeds are gone. The grass has never been so green. They have lived up to their name.
My lawn looks awesome and I have had neighbors walking their dogs tell me the same! Thanks Simply Green!
Simply Green always does an excellent job and are very customer oriented. The technicians are more knowledgeable than those of other companies I have tried.
Please let your staff that serviced my lawn aeration and fertilization yesterday know that they did an EXCELLENT JOB! My lawn is doing better than it ever has. And because of them and the rest of the techs that come out to my house, I'll remain a loyal customer of Simply Green. Great job!
I just had another comment this morning on how good our fescue lawn looks, which happens several times a week. I walked out in our back yard this AM and couldn't believe it was the same yard as what I dealt with last year. We have a good lawn maintenance crew that takes care of mowing and edging, and we have a good company that takes care of weeding, feeding, and shrubbery & trees. I enjoy telling friends and neighbors about your service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Happened to be home and Ben was treating the yard. He took meticulous care in the treatment. Please convey my thanks to him.
