Default Need Some Help With A Fertilization Flyer

Hey Guys
I'm going to start my second round of fertilizing next week and was wondering if anybody had any fertilizing flyers that I could edit for my own use to send out to my customers. I've looked thru the website to the best of my ability and haven't found anything (lots of GREAT other templates tho!!). Kinda looking for something that explains when the 4 times a year are to fertilize and why. I think I have sufficient information to input into the template as far as general info, but any help would be appreciated!
Thanks a ton!!
Kendrick

What kind of information would you put into the flyer? Maybe I can help whip something together.

Hi Steve
Thank You very much for helping me! I have done some looking on the web and have found a few things I'd like to cut and paste into the flyer. Unfortunately, I have computer knowledge, however I have never really worked with putting something like this together. I sure do appreciate everyone who puts out the freebie templates! Here's what I was thinking:

Why Fertilize?
Your soil supplies some of the nutrients that turfgrass needs. Most soils are not able to provide all of them during the entire growing season. A healthy and actively-growing lawn uses a great deal of energy. Fertilizer helps your lawn stay healthy by:

Promoting new leaf and root growth.


Aiding in the recovery from foot traffic and pest damage.


Reducing and controlling weeds.


Replacing nutrients lost to leaching, volatilization and grass clipping removal.



No two lawns are alike. Where you live, whether you have sun or shade, and lots of other things make a big difference in what your lawn needs.


When to Fertilize Lawns
The most important thing you can do for your lawn is to feed it. A well-fed lawn is healthier, which means it has a better root system to combat heat, cold, drought, mowing, foot traffic and other stresses. While feeding your lawn once a year will improve its condition, feeding it four times a year will make it even healthier. If you put your lawn on the regular feeding schedule outlined below, it will look lush and green, and your neighbors will turn green with envy.

Early Spring (February - April)
Lawns wake up hungry in the spring. Feeding your lawn in the spring strengthens roots and gets it off to a good start before the heavy growing season. If you see crabgrass, apply a combination fertilizer with a pre-emergent to control it.
Late Spring (April - June)
Spring is lunch time for lawns. Your grass is busy and using up stored energy. That's why you want to supply the lawn with a feeding designed for this time of year. Unfortunately, broadleaf weeds are actively growing, too. Hit them and feed your lawn with a combination of fertilizer with broadleaf weed control (a "weed-n-feed").
Summer (June - August)
Summer is tough on grass. Heat, drought, foot traffic, and insects stress it out. Feeding your lawn in the summer protects and strengthens it against these problems. Lawns in warm-season grass areas should be fed over the summer months as they grow steadily from spring to fall.
Fall (September - November)
Fall brings back ideal conditions for your lawn. Cool nights, ample rainfall and morning dew are just about as good as it gets for grass. Now the lawn is ready to grow again, and is looking for the nutrients it needs to recover from summer damage. Some experts will say this is the single most important lawn feeding of the year. Apply your final feeding right before the winter months, when grass is prepping for a winter nap. This will strengthen roots and increase nitrogen storage for an early spring green up and a healthier lawn next year.
Following a general program like this one should improve your lawn.

Thank You again for your help! I was thinking something like this but with a catchy clipart image and a nice place for me to put my business logo somewhere. I have a link to a site that has a neat little diagram on when to fertilize for certain climate grasses. Maybe if possible I'd like to have it in there somewhere too.
The link is: http://www.allaboutlawns.com/lawn-ma...ze-my-lawn.php
and the diagram is "Table #1" near the bottom of the page.

Thanks
Kendrick

Did any of the flyer templates catch your eye that we could edit with this content?

Actually they all looked great. I have no idea where to start with editing any one single template tho, so that's why I thought I'd see if someone could come up with something. Like I said, I'm fairly creative, however not so much with designing something quite like this. I sure appreciate your interest and help.
