Subsequently, one may also ask, is it too late to put down winter fertilizer?

Beware: fertilizing too late (once winter sets in) or too early (before mid-November) can actually do harm to your lawn. By fertilizing to early, you are making your lawn more vulnerable to insect outbreaks.

Additionally, how late can you winterize your lawn? The best time to apply a winterizer is after the grass stops growing in the fall, while it is still green on top and active below the surface. In most parts of the North, this will be sometime in mid-late November, or even early December.
