Fertilizing for the Winter
Have you thought about how to prepare your lawn for the coming winter?
Did you know that fall is the best time to fertilize?
One way to give your lawn a leg up in the spring is to fertilize before freezing temperatures and snow cause it stress. Many popular types of grass prepare for winter by absorbing nutrients and strengthening their root systems. Fertilizing in the fall gives them an extra dose of nutrients to help them stand strong against the cold.
Here are three reasons to make sure you don’t miss fall fertilization:
- Morning dew on chilly mornings delivers moisture to help your lawn absorb fertilizer.
- Root growth in the fall means a healthier lawn in the spring.
- Your grass will grow and build stamina before the cold winter.
While you’re fertilizing, rake up fall leaves. Leaves and other debris that sit on top of your lawn all winter trap moisture, reduce air circulation, and block sunlight from reaching the ground. The result can be dead spots and snow mold, a type of fungi that can kill grass and roots. You won’t know your lawn has snow mold until spring, when you see large pink or gray mold circles in your grass. To keep your lawn healthy as possible over the winter, rake leaves, fallen branches, and dead plants off your lawn before the snow flies.
