Winterizing Southern lawns
I’ve received several phone calls in recent weeks from clients asking about the need and importance of winterizing their lawns.
It’s true; lawn winterizing products have been on the shelves of lawn care centers for a month or more now. For warm-season lawns, the term “winterize” is simply stated as slowing down plant growth and increasing plant levels of the nutrient potassium (K). Research has shown that higher levels of potassium in the plant can enhance cold tolerance, thus reducing the damage incurred by winter frosts.
