The Importance of Winterizing

November 13, 2015



1. Stronger Roots
Winterizer fertilizers give an extra boost to root growth at the end of the
season.  Having stronger, healthier roots is very important to help the
grass handle the dormant period and any frosts or freezes that come with
it.  As the grass goes dormant, the roots continue to feed and prepare for
the spring.  These stronger roots help the grass come out of dormancy in
the spring stronger and greener.

2. Hardier Grass
The increase of potash in Winterizers strengthen the grass, as well as
adding disease resistance.  Leading up to the winter it is important that all
development of the grass happens properly, and potash is very important
in accomplishing this.

3. Better green up in the Spring
With healthier roots and stronger plant tissue helping the grass make it
through the winter better, these improvements play a big role in the spring
as well.  By applying a Winterizer in the late fall, the grass emerges
quicker, greener, and stronger in the spring.

4. Damage Repair

Since our winterizer is high nitrogen, it also works very well in repairing damage cause by fall brown patch or sod webworms.  By applying the winterizer at the end of October, there is enough time left in the growing season to achieve some grow back before the grass goes dormant.  Make sure to begin treating for the webworms before you apply the winterizer.
