Too late to fertilize lawn?
I read that the lawn can be fertilized and even sprayed for weeds in late August, early September. Unfortunately, every year I seem to get busy and miss the boat. Do you think it's too late?
I guess my thinking is, I don't want to encourage a bunch of new growth and have the lawn too 'active' going into winter.
I know some people do fertilize in late October, the reasoning being that the lawn is already dormant and the fertilizer will actually soak into the soil and be used by the lawn first thing in spring.
I really need to pay my lawn some special attention, it seems nice, but a bit thin in places.
Thanks for any advice,
