I am sure you will get lots of responses to this. I have always done my first fertilization in late February/early March, my second in June, third in August and fourth in October. Many say you don't need to do the fertilization in August but I think it really helps my lawn. This schedule is what I follow for fertilizing. If you use corn gluten meal as a pre-emergent, that may change your schedule a bit since you get a fertilizer benefit from the corn gluten.

Boy, thanks for your help! We just purchased a home whose yard is in pretty bad shape, so I am really looking forward to getting the program started! :D

I fertilize on the major national holidays, because they are easy to remember. Labor Day is coming up.

Here's my schedule

Washington's Birthday
Memorial Day
4th of July
Labor Day
Thanksgiving.
