  • feed your lawn in the fall

Fall is the best time to feed and fertilize your lawn. Why?

After a long, stressful summer your lawn needs to recharge, fill back in, and get set for the winter ahead. Fertilizing in the fall improves the overall health of your soil. Lasting impacts show the following spring when your lawn shines as the greenest on the block!

It’s important to use a quality fertilizer though. Many discount brands of fertilizer become cheapened with the addition of quick-release fertilizer, which can cause more damage to a lawn than if they weren’t used at all.

Rest assured – anything you buy from Earl May is the best option for your lawn. Why? Our high-quality feed and fertilizer releases slowly over time making your lawn stay greener longer. It is created especially for the Midwest and includes extra nutrients needed in Midwest lawns to improve the health of the soil, helping your lawn stay full, lush and green!

Apply Earl May Lawn Food in September to help lawns fill in from summer stress. Then, apply Earl May Fall Lawn Food in October or early November at about the time of your last mowing to winterize your lawn and get it set for the following year. This timing is the most effective as the turf will store foods for next year.

    Why can’t I purchase pure white mums. I bought white mums several years ago, but now they all have yellow centers.

    We just received a shipment of Quaking Aspen. The Shenandoah store could get them for you.
