Urea will be used up by the lawns in 3 to 4 weeks giving the roots the nitrogen they need to "bulk up" before the ground freezes.
See, that is where the traditional wisdom is a lie... I don't see any fertilizer breaking down into useable form and bulking up the plant in the next 3-4 weeks of this dry ground... it goes against everything we know and have experienced in the fert industry over the past 50 years...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
