Q: I just applied lawn fertilizer. Do I need to water the lawn right away?
A: Your lawn will not benefit from dry fertilizer products until the product is watered in. In most cases however, you can safely wait a few days for rain without worry. The exceptions would be if you have children or pets who want to play on the lawn, or if the temperatures are expected to exceed 85° F. In these instances, we recommend watering the lawn right after a fertilizer application.
