Bentley Lawn Care and Snow Removal would recommend feeding your lawn every 6-8 weeks.

Of course not, your lawn is only dormant in the cool seasons not dead, fertilization is still needed in the winter to maintain a nice lawn and ensure a green lawn in early spring.
3. If I wanted to fertilize my own lawn how do I find the area of my lawn?
You would need to measure the length of your lawn and multiply it by the width, this total will give you the sq. ft. needed to properly fertilize your lawn.
4. What does the 3 numbers on the fertilizer bag mean?
Good question, the first number represents the Nitrogen which gives the lawn the green color, the second number is the Phosphorus which helps the roots to grow, the third number is the Potassium which strengthens the lawn.

Not necessary, the key is to use a quality fertilizer with “time-released nitrogen” which periodically feeds your lawn.

They are both beneficial to your lawn, the difference is the liquid form is always a quick release and doesn’t last long unlike the quality bag fertilizers.
