What kind of fertilizer should i use???


Moved into my new house last fall and i dont really have grass - more so a weed box (picture attached)

Lawn gets a decent amount of sun. Just wondering what type of fertilizer to use to kill the types of weeds (and strawberries) growing in my lawn.

also when should i put it down and how often? i'm in central NJ.



THANKS!

For your lawn cultivar use the fertilizer a soil test indicates. For the weeds, take pics and a few show and tell samples to your extension agent for pre-emergent and or post- emergent recommendations and when to apply for your weeds.

A healthy lawn is often, but not always, a deterrent to weed growth. What we tend to forget is what we planted for a lawn probably isn't native to our little parcel of dirt and nature is attempting to correct our stubborn minds to prevent erosion in most instances.
