The Q&A Archives: Winter Lawn Care

Question: what should I be doing to prepare my lawn for winter? Should I spread seed so I can have a winter lawn, or what? thanks.

Answer: You can overseed your lawn this month. In October-November - apply winterizer formula high in phosphorus for winter hardiness. Phosphorus helps develop strong root systems. Ratios vary, but make sure they are "winter" or "fall" formulas designed for southern grasses. (examples: 18-6-12, 8-12-16, 10-5-14) Will make lawns winter-hardy.
