Here's How To Treat Your Grass In Winter For A Green Spring Field
While it's easy to forget about your grass during winter, using a low-nitrogen, high-potassium fertilizer in early December and late February is the key to a beautiful spring lawn.
You should aim to fertilize during the growing season, which differs based on type. Cool-season grasses grow in fall and spring, while warm-season grasses grow during the summer.
Leaves can cause damage, so use a low-nitrogen, high-potassium fertilizer on cool-season grasses in winter to promote root growth instead.
Switching to a fertilizer with more nitrogen in spring will encourage leaf growth and promote a lush lawn. Use the same fertilizer on your warm-season grasses in the summer.
If you have an overseeded lawn featuring both types of grasses, follow the guidelines for cool-season fertilization in the winter and switch to high nitrogen in February.
