winterizing my lawn

I live in colorado and it is still rather warm this year. Should I still go ahead and put down fertilizer for the winter growth?

Welcome to the forums.

The proper time to do so varies with climate so I'm not sure when would be the best time for you but I've heard many say the fall feeding is the most important one for a lawn.

Is your grass still actively growing? If so, I'd go ahead.

Inland - As Mitch said there are lots of variables. I live in New England (zone 6) and I try to fertilize late in the fall. Usually after 1st frost.

Here's a link to the Scotts site. Even if you don't use their products they have a little guide to assist in determining how and when to fertilize.

Can I ask - where are you sailing in Colorado? Cherry Creek?
