Around the middle of June to the end of July is the best time to apply the third step in our lawn care program. This is one of the most important applications for your lawn. Applying IFA Step 3 Spring & Summer slow release fertilizer, during the hot weather, will help your lawn continue to maintain a darker green color under the stress of the summer months. Because your lawn is working hard in the heat, it needs a slow, long-feeding fertilizer that is formulated locally for our unique Utah soils and conditions.
The slow release nitrogen and an Omnicote application of iron, manganese and zinc found in IFA Step 3 Spring & Summer Fertilizer is an IFA exclusive process by which iron and other important micronutrients, needed for a healthy lawn, are applied to each individual fertilizer pellet. The Omnicote coating ensures that all of the micronutrients are evenly distributed over the entire lawn. This allows for maximum nutrient uptake, which will maintain its beautiful green color and efficient water utilization.
