Winterization for Your Lawn

 

A lawn winterizer is applied in early to late November. This application does not target growth but to target thick, rapid growth, and rooting in the spring. This application WILL NOT encourage growth. This process will target early spring green up.

Shifting excess nutrients to roots is the secret to plants’ return each spring. Those stored food reserves fuel the spring wake-up. The same is true of your lawn. By fertilizing grass in fall, you’re feeding the active roots and giving them even more nutrients to store for winter.

When spring arrives with longer days and warmer air, grass blades sense the seasonal change and respond by kicking into growth gear, drawing upon those food reserves. Grass that is fed in November greens up quickly in spring, growing thick and lush. A thick lawn crowds out weeds.

When winterizing a lawn, fertilizing is most critical for cool-season grasses.
