Florida turf grasses require a complete fertilization in March and again in September, according to the University of Florida. Substitute the fertilizer with a weed and feed product if you have many weeds in the lawn. Apply in May, if broadleaf weeds are present. Use a product specific to your grass variety, and apply at the recommended rate.
