Fall Fertilization Is Most Important For Your Warsaw & Syracuse Lawn

The final application of the season is the most important if you want to have a nice looking lawn next spring for your Warsaw, IN and Syracuse, IN lawns.  The winterizer application is a quick release fertilizer that is designed to be absorbed quickly into the root system of the plant so that it has plenty of food next spring when the lawn wakes up.  Why is this so important?  Weeds in your lawn wake up earlier than your grass or lawn.  If the weeds wake up sooner and start germinating and growing before the lawn and become stronger, they will begin to take over the healthy lawn and create problems for your grass.  When your lawn is weak, disease and weeds will begin to take over.  There isn’t an instant gratification after applying the final round of fertilizer like instant greening of the lawn, but it is vitally important for your lawns in Warsaw, Syracuse, Winona Lake, Ft. Wayne, Columbia City, Culver, and North Webster.
