  • <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: General Recommendation

    Typically, a fertilizer high in nitrogen is recommended for use in the spring season according to AllAboutLawns.com. The site recommends nitrogen-rich formulas because nitrogen encourages rejuvenation and growth.

    On the Other: Condition Considerations

    Consider your lawn's condition when choosing the correct fertilizer. If your lawn has been oversaturated or overfed, a nitrogen-rich fertilizer could encourage quick top growth that could lead to mold. In this case, a lower nitrogen formula may be preferable.

    Bottom Line

    Generally speaking, it is recommended that if your lawn is healthy going into spring you should choose a fertilizer formula that has a high concentration of nitrogen to encourage rich soil and growth. However, if your lawn is less than healthy a fertilizer with less nitrogen is necessary to prevent the establishment of mold.
