    Ok, I have sold about half of my customers on the Aeration and overseeding, but i also have these and the other half sold on Winterizer Fertilizer. My question is can i overseed and still spread winterizer, if so what should i do first and what time frames. I know its coming down to crunch time so any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Ok need a little more info on zone and climate. I am now doing aerations and using 13-13-13 for fert. I will use winterizer fert in late nov. as for winterizing lawns now while aerating and seeding I dont think you will have a problem since there is a minor amount of quick release N in winterizer that will allow some food for newly germinating seed. Also you could apply start fert or similar and 3 weeks later apply winterizer as long as you dont forsee a freeze up of ground.

    The winterizer, as far as I have known, will kill the new seed you put down. You can only do one or the other, but maybe it's different down here in Texas.
