I have jury duty tomorrow...so I am getting a jump on my friday post.
Time for your fall feeding.
…not you… your lawn.
Fall feeding is often ignored because we tend to focus on anything but the lawn at this time of the year. It’s been a long summer of cutting and trimming, fertilizing and weed control…sheesh can’t it be done already!
The last feeding of the season will make a big difference next spring. You will notice your lawn green up sooner, and fill out quicker once the temps start to rise.
This year I am using Winterizer with Weed Control. Often times at the end of the summer weeds try to make a comeback. If left untreated they will seed and return with a vengeance next spring.
Remember that weed control has no effect on crabgrass. Not to worry tho, crabgrass is an annual and by fertilizing now to create a thicker healthier lawn it will help control the crabgrass next year.
If your leaves are already coming down heavily, apply the fertilizer after you rake.
If you do decide to use the weed control formula – put it down while the dew is still on the grass and rain is not expected for 24 hours. This way the weed control will stick to the leaves of the offending plant matter and have time to work systemically.
