Fescue Grass Lawn Fertilizer Schedule for Absarokee, MT

This Fescue 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)
