    Anyone doing this in their area? Saw well known lawn fertilization company (name rhymes with 'lots') spreading pre-m fert over lawns with patches of snow at least 5'x5'. talk about jumping the gun. :dizzy:

    No new snow, just areas of ground cover that make it unreasonable to apply. We had a winter of over 100" (top 5 in history) most of it coming in Feb/March.. so it has really hung around

    Thats a very effective new trend :)
    The Pre-m will be watered in when the snow melts :alien:

    I expect any day now that they will start selling that as their very last application in their 12 round application package in late fall early winter. I have seen them put it down with full snow coverage. Then customers get pissed and wonder why they have crabgrass in June, july and Aug. :dizzy:
