Lawn care DIYers who fertilize in the spring should know about "Winterizing".
Experts agree fall is the best time to apply fertilizer and control weeds. Grass plants and weeds put more energy into root growth in the fall, so fertilizing results in more vigorous grass that comes back thicker and greener next spring, and weed killer moves through all parts of the plant for fast, complete weed control.
Benefits of Winterizing your Lawn, provided by Sta-Green Winterizer and Winterizer Weed & Feed:
* Encourages a deeper stronger root system * Promotes winter hardiness * Helps with disease resistance * Promotes early spring greening * Aids in developing a thick, healthy lawn
Sta-Green Winterizer and Winterizer Weed & Feed are specifically formulated for fall application, and promote deeper, stronger root systems without burning or harming lawns.
Sta-Green fertilizers have been developed using the exclusive Polyon(R) Technology. This timed-release fertilizer technology, used by golf course superintendents and DIYers alike, feeds the plants when they need it most and delivers maximum fertilizer benefits for greener, healthier and more beautiful lawns.
Sta-Green fertilizers will not burn or harm lawns or landscape plants when used properly. They provide fast greening without surge growth, feed up to nine months and provide a consistent green color week after week.
