Fall: the Best Time for Lawn Fertilizer

fall lawn careYour lawn can be the make-or-break factor of your home’s appearance. If fed properly, your lawn will be the luscious, green envy of your neighbors.

Why feed your lawn during fall?

Fall is the ideal time to fertilize your lawn, especially in Texas, because the infamously hot summer temperatures are replaced by the warm, moderate fall temperatures. The grass seeds will germinate  and develop deep, durable root systems during this time of year, which will promote the lawn’s survival through the winter to come. Once spring rolls around, the grass will be thick, green, and healthier than ever.

Which fertilizer should you use?

There are a plethora of lawn fertilizers in the market today, but the best feed to use during the fall is feed that promotes strong, deep root growth. Scotts® makes a product called Scotts® Turf Builder® WinterGuard® Fall Lawn Fertilizer. This product has been proven to produce beautiful spring lawns when used during the fall.
