Over the years I have gone back and forth over this one. When it gets to be real late in the season, does it still make sense to do that final treatment? Well it depends totally on what type of product you are going to use. I know for a fact that the bigger more corporate and un-named companies aren’t exactly putting down the highest quality stuff when it comes to the winterizer.
And, when you think about it, is there really any such thing as a winterizing lawn care treatment? Don’t you hate it when lawn services say things like this treatment “will put your lawn to bed?” Come on, we all know that’s a bunch of crap.
I wrote a blog entry over at MyBeeSafeLawn.com this week that goes into why the so called “winterizer” actually is a good idea as long as you aren’t ripping people off.
