Lawn in Midtown

After an interesting year weather-wise, winter is finally upon us. Winter always brings with it some confusion for homeowners as to what to do with their lawns as our warm-season turfs finally go dormant. Lawn questions are year-round in our office as we have a very demanding environment for growing turf here on the Gulf Coast. One question that always pops up this time of year is, “Should I winterize my lawn?”

Let’s stop for a second to think about what that means and what we are trying to accomplish. If you ask five different people what to do when you "winterize" your lawn, you will most likely get five different answers. Many people consider winterizing your lawn as putting out a specific fertilizer. Some people think winterizing means overseeding with cool-season grass to have green grass all year around.
