If the home owner feels that the lawn should be rolled, a light weight roller is suggested. Lawns should be rolled only once in early spring after danger of freez ing is past. FERTILIZING LAWNS Now is the time to feed the lawn that extra plant food if you plan to give it a feeding. Eight to ten pounds of 10—20-10 or 10-10-10 fertilizer per one thou sand square feet of lawn will give the lawn grasses a good boost. SHARPEN TOOLS Is the lawn mover and other garden tools ready for the spring and summer season. Sharp tools will make the spring work easier and more pleasant. It’s also time to have the lawn mower checked and ready to go.
