A new video has been posted to DEC’s YouTube channel  reminding New Yorkers to “Look for the Zero”. Before buying lawn fertilizer, check the bag for a set of three numbers showing the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Buy a bag with a “0” in the middle to protect our waters from harmful runoff.

Remember – it is also against NYS law to apply lawn fertilizer before April 1. Visit DEC’s Lawn Fertilizer webpage for more information.
