Like squirrels storing nuts for the winter, your yard needs nutrients for the cold weather as well. Fertilize your lawn late in the summer, while the plants are still growing, and again just before the onset of winter. This dormant feeding works well for northern types of grass, like Kentucky bluegrass and ryegrass. Check with our local nursery to find out which fertilizer works best for your grass and climate. If the soil is already frozen, it’s too late to fertilize, so hold off until next year. Fertilizing now causes environmental pollution, since the runoff can be damaging.
