Make a Lawn GreenerIf it's already in generally good shape, nitrogen is the key.

You can tell the amount of nitrogen in the fertilizer by checking the numbers on the package, which are always N-P-K, nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium. Nitrogen causes greenup and leaf growth, phosphorous healthy root growth, and potassium aids in spreading. In my area with my grass I'm supposed to add about 4 lbs of total nitrogen per 1000 square feet of grass per year, but generally I'm too lazy and cheap. Again, in my area it's generally best to add about half of it between September and November, but you should check with you local extension office, or check to see of your stage ag college has a web site with grass growing advice.

For starters, you could take a look at the link below, but seek local sources that will give you the right information for your climate, soil, and grass.
