Test your soil before using fertilizer
- A soil test helps determine the right amount and type of fertilizer you need. Testing first could save you money on expensive and unnecessary fertilizers.
- Fertilizers and other yard chemicals can harm local streams and rivers. To prevent runoff, buy a slow-release product and avoid applying before rain, on slopes, near bodies of water or storm drains.
- If you live near water, avoid fertilizing the first 50 feet of shoreline.
