Hello all,

i am looking to fertilize my lawn after work today. it rained a little bit last night so the soil will be damp this afternoon. However, we are supposed to get heavy rainfall tomorrow (Saturday). Will this wash away my fertilizer and be a waste?

i have read its a good idea to fertilize before a rainfall but is to much rain fall a bad thing for my fertilizer washing away?

I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma

If it is a granular then nothing to worry about you actually want it watered in. If it's a spray then just make sure you get it on at least a few hours before the rain.
Basically if it rains so hard it temporarily floods the lawn to where it picks up the granules and displaces them.
