Alec Kowaleski Assistant Professor, Turf Specialist with Oregon State University, recommends a holiday plan for fertilizing to make it easier to remember. His goal is to apply three to five pounds of nitrogen per 1000 square feet of yard in each year. He recommends applying 1 to 1.5 pounds at Memorial Day, 0.5 to 1 pound at the Fourth of July, 0.5 to 1 pound at Labor Day, and 1 to 1.5 pounds at Halloween.
