Fall Lawn Care tips

Fall Lawn Fertilizer
  • Apply Parkwood® 10-0-14 Fall Fertilizer in the autumn anytime between September and November. This is crucial for strengthening your lawn throughout the winter months.
  • Make certain you water in well after application.
  • The 10 in the formula is Nitrogen which strengthens the roots for winter.
  • The 14 in the formula is Potassium which builds resistance to winter injury and disease.
  • Only your lawn should be fertilized at this time; fertilizing your shrubs and trees should be completed in late August and then left to go dormant.
