Each September, we’re reminded twice of the transition from summer to fall; unofficially over Labor Day weekend and officially later in the month. It’s usually still warm in the beginning of September, but the nights begin to cool off, and soon, nature shows vivid signs of change.
The change in season doesn’t mean it’s time to lay off the lawn just yet. In fact, fall fertilizer is the most important lawn feeding of the year.
IFA Step 4 Fall & Winter Fertilizer helps prepare your lawn for winter and early spring with much-needed nutrients. It’s locally formulated to give your lawn strong roots and store energy, encouraging a healthy spring turf and an early green up.
Each fertilizer pellet is coated with IFA exclusive Omnicote for an even nutrient distribution. It contains three types of non-staining iron – quick, medium and slow release – to provide a superior dark green lawn in the fall and early spring.
With the cool winter months ahead, it’s good to know your lawn is ready and you’ll have a head start on the neighborhood come spring.

Apply IFA Step 4 Fall & Winter Fertilizer anytime between the beginning of September and November (or the first snowfall in your area). Make sure at least 4 to 6 weeks have passed between applying IFA Step 3 Spring & Summer Fertilizer and IFA Step 4 Fall & Winter Fertilizer.
