Winter Fertilizer

For the late fall fertilizer application Mr. Green Lawncare Inc. applies a product that has the majority of the nitrogen in a water soluble form. This fertilizer application will supply the nutrients to the turf immediately and allow the plant to store “food” (carbohydrates) for next spring.

An effective late fall fertilization will benefit the turf by producing carbohydrates, encouraging early spring root growth, providing good fall and spring color and improving turf density so the turf will better compete with weeds next spring.

Generally for Mr. Green Lawncare Inc. customers, the late fall application would be about the first or second week of November.
