Cool season grasses
grow differently than their warm season cousins. The majority of their annual
nutrients are taken in during the fall months making lawn winterization very important. Winterizer is high in both
“macro” and “micro” nutrients in order to sustain the grass through the harsh
In the fall, cool
season grasses are taking on large amounts of nutrients to overcome summer stress and to
get them through the winter. In addition, these grasses are programmed to use
stored nutrients to break winter dormancy in spring. As much as seventy-five
percent of the total annual nitrogen requirement is obtained in the fall.
Therefore, fall lawn winterization is the best way to deliver the needed
nutrients to your grass. Cool
