Step 2: Broadleaf Weed Control:

Step 3: Fertilization:
October 1st-December 31st

FertilizerThis is a granular product that is applied with a spreader. Fertilizer provides the grass with the nutrients necessary for green color and root growth. There are two treatments of this product: one in early fall and the other in early winter. The second application gives the turf winter protection.
