Almost every program that deals with lawn fertilization is based upon the amount of Nitrogen.  Nitrogen is used by grass in the largest amount.  In addition, you want to ensure that you do not exceed the maximum amount or it can cause damage to your lawn.

So you first have to determine how much nitrogen your grass needs based upon the type of grass you have and then determine how to apply that nitrogen over the growing season.  Next, you’ll need to know the correct amounts based on what time of the year it is.  Too much and you can harm your lawn and even encourage insect and diseases.  Too little can slow down photosynthesis and keep your lawn from receiving the carbohydrates it needs.

In general, the largest amount of nitrogen is applied in the fall.  This is when your grass is focusing on carbohydrate storage and root production instead of blade production.
