Message: Weed killer can generally be applied once your weeds are actively growing. Some brands may have a certain temperature guideline when their product works the best so check the label. For fertilizer, generally when the trees start to bud out is a good sign that you can start applying high nitrogen fertilizers. High nitrogen, slow release fertilizers should not be used past the middle of July. For later in the season there are also good fall fertilizers on the market which help harden your lawn off for winter & get it off to a good start in the spring.
