Rye Grass Lawn Fertilizer Schedule for Abington, MA

Fertilizer Schedule

This Rye grass fertilizer plan is based on four applications per year, from Spring through Fall.

The mid Summer applications should only be done if your lawn is properly irrigated.

The dates listed below are based on average historic temperatures in your area. These should only be used as a guideline, and your specific weather forecasts should be used to determine actual dates.

Spring (March, April, May)

Ideally your first spring application would happen when the average nightly temperature is above 60 degrees. However, we don't have any weather records for Abington, MA that meet this criteria.

Summer (June, July, August)

  • June 7 — Apply 0.75lbs of nitrogen per 1000 square feet of grass.
  • July 30 — Apply 0.75lbs of nitrogen per 1000 square feet of grass.

  • November 13 — Apply 0.75lbs of nitrogen per 1000 square feet of grass.

Do not apply fertilizer to Rye grass during the Winter months as it can promote growth that only gets damaged by the next cold snap, causing more harm than good.
