Can you still fertilize lawns after it has frosted over a few times?
I want to run a fall special for late fall fertilizing but its already frosted over about 5 times. So I don't know if its to late or not?
Thanks

you may still fertilize, you are in it to make money, just go do it, it will eventually melt into the soil when the frost and dew runs when the sun comes up. You and your family still have to eat in the winter.

This is my ad that I want to run with my craigslist ad but its doesn't show up big enough to read.
Can someone tell me how to resize it so it you can read it easy. I can't figure out how to do it. I used MS Publisher to make it.
Thanks for your help

hmmm how did you actually make the image? Doesn't publisher make some sort of document file? This is an image file. Did you render it or something like that? Or maybe did you take a screen cap?

For some reason the document file wouldn't post so I put it up as a image.
I didn't actually make it. I just filled in the blanks.
I tried resizing it but it only made the page bigger not the actual ad.

I might need to start over and do it from the beginning again.
I'm new to using MS Publisher.

I understand the "you're in it to make money" and "you and your family still have to eat" thing, but does ANYBODY know if this advice is actually valid? I would hate to take this advice, go out and fertilize during frost, then the turf die because of me.

Anybody?

Yeah I wouldn't consider this a legitimate answer to my question. I know what I need to do to feed my family. You can't just go around doing things because you need money whether it is the right time or not.
I was looking for answers based on the right way and time of applying fertilizer.
If its the wrong time to fertilize and my kids need to eat with no other work I'll go get a side job until spring. Fortunately thats not the case though yet.
Thanks for the comment anyways though.
