Getting Ready For Winter – Late Season Fertilizer Application

3 Min

As the fall season creeps on, it’s time to think about getting your lawn ready for winter and this includes one final application of fertilizer. 

Why Now?

Your lawn has been hungrily sucking up all the nutrients it can in order to survive the heat and sun of the summer months. You’ve probably noticed its growth has slowed down and even may be brownish or patchy in spots. You need to get it ready to fight off winter’s harshness.

By feeding your lawn now, it will allow for your yard to green-up quickly and healthily in the spring.  Plus, it allows you to delay spring fertilization until late spring or early June.

Note that you won’t see any results from fertilizing before the snow falls – that’s not the intent.
