We’ve been feeling the nip of winter the past few days here in Kansas City and when the temperature starts dropping like this, plants slow their growth and eventually become dormant. So, while we prepare for the holiday’s during November your lawn needs to begin preparing for spring! Even though growth has slowed, the grass is still processing water and nutrients as long as the ground isn’t frozen.
When spring rolls around, our lawns will come out of dormancy and become stressed. The nutrients added by the Winterizer Fertilizer treatment will help each grass plant store the energy it needs to come out strong next spring after the long, cold winter.
Strengthen Your Trees and Shrubs with Deep Root Fertilizer
Unlike turf, which during the warmer seasons will show the effects of fertilizer within the next couple days, trees and shrubs take up to two months to show the effects. This is because the nutrients have a longer journey to the new growth at the top of the plant. Fertilizing your trees and shrubs during the Fall allows your plants all Winter to soak up everything they need,which creates a brighter and stronger Spring.
A Fall Fertilizer is also necessary for new plants (five years or younger) to help with transplant shock. These plants have more roots that they need to establish to live long healthy lives. Winter allows your plants time to relax and repair themselves for the next year.
The #1 Application for the Year
A Winter Fertilizer Application is the heaviest round of fertilizer your lawn will receive all year, and if you have been opting out on other applications this is the one you shouldn’t skip out on! While we are bundling up during the dropping temperatures and feasting for the holidays; don’t forget to cover your lawn in a Winterizer Fertilizer Application so it can feast all winter as well!
