Our last post was the first step to lawn recovery. We discussed how aeration & fertilization of your lawn would help you recover some beauty to your lawn. In this post, the lawn recovery procedure program is continued with two other steps.
Recap of 1st Step
We first aerated the lawn to loosen up the soil. Then we fertilized the lawn to promote good root growth. We also used some Milorganite with the starter fertilizer to help out as well.
Then we planted some seed that went with the region you are in such as warm or cool season areas. If you have a weed problem you want to also do some weed control. There are some starter fertilizers that have weed control ingredients already in them.
Steps 2 & 3
These last two steps are done to increase the results of your lawn. It is pretty much just adding more fertilizer, particularly a winterize fertilizer at a stronger dosage of application which is around 15lbs to 1000 sq. ft.
These two steps are pretty much identical except for the timing of the applications. The 2nd step is applied October while the 3rd step is applied in November.
In October there is still a chance of it getting warm and could produce some grass growth that can do away with some of the fertilizer.
In November the chances of it warming up and the grass growth has a less chance of happening.
The end result is that you will be nourishing your yard during the winter months thus increasing better grass results when the Spring arrives. For a great overview see the video below.
