All you have to do is type in the phrase “winterize my lawn” into an Internet search engine, and you get page after page of varying opinions. You can find experts who will live and die by winterization, while others think that fertilizing your lawn with a special blend at the right time won’t do anything to keep your lawn healthy over the winter months. So just who do you believe? Allow our crew at Lawn Plus LLC help point you in the right direction.
1. Consider where you live.
The need for winterization—that last application of fertilizer before winter hits—is really based on where you live, or even more so what kind of grass you have. Cool-season grasses like fescue or bluegrass (common types found in Ohio) benefit more from winterization than warm-season grasses like Bermuda, St. Augustine, and so on. So your best first step is to understand where you live and what types of grasses are common in your area.
2. Understand the value of winterization.
Winterizer is a special blend of fertilizer that’s generally applied during late fall. Today’s Homeowner points out that this special blend is uniquely formulated with increased levels of potassium and decreased nitrogen levels to accommodate the unique needs of lawns during the winter months. Winterizer helps give your lawn one more good “feeding” that helps it stay healthy during those harsh Ohio winters.
