  • Late Fall - Fertilize to shore up your lawn for the winter cold and to boost germination of new seeds
  • Winter - Consider lawn fertilization services during the winter to apply the right fertilizer to sustain health
Many homeowners make the mistake of neglecting fall and winter fertilizing of their lawns, then wonder why they have to struggle in the spring and summer to achieve a lush and green landscape. But many lawn care experts consider the fall and winter fertilization to be the most important lawn feedings of the year.
 

When to Fertilize Lawn in Fall and Winter Seasons

Winter lawn care is your best defense against the harsh temperatures, cold rain, and heavy snow that is typical in Utah from as early as October and as late as March. That's six months of stress on your home's landscape! When homeowners leave their lawn unprotected and malnourished during the fall and winter, they make it more difficult to for a lawn to be healthy during the spring and summer months.
 
Here are some major nutrients that lawn fertilization services use to care for lawns year-round, but the key to a truly green and healthy lawn is the percentage of each nutrient used in the fertilizer, which can change depending on what your lawn needs and the time of year:
 
  • Nitrogen (N) - Promotes the top growth of grass blades to be dense and green
  • Phosphorus (P) - For healthy root growth which will sustain your lawn during winter months
  • Potassium (K) - Increases the general health of your lawn, making the grass able to withstand stress
In addition to these major nutrients, your law fertilization services will include micronutrients that are missing from the soil in many locations. These minerals can make or break the health and appearance of your lawn - including zinc, iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, and sulfur.
