A fall fertilization will help your lawn through the cold NY winters, and help it green
up earlier in the spring. You may also want to incorporate a fifth feeding into your lawn program in late fall to further help winterize
your lawn. We recommend a straight fertilizer that is formulated with higher potassium for this feeding. This type of fertilizer tends
to condition turf to withstand Long Island's winter stress.
