By the end of summer, our lawn is probably showing areas of dryness from the summer heat and drought conditions. Don’t worry, grass is very resilient and fall is a recovery period. As temps lessen and the days get shorter this helps reduce the amount of stress on our lawns.
4 Tips for Fall Lawn Care
Choose a cool day and get your weeding finished. Moist ground is always easier to weed than dried out soil.
Thatching can be done with a rake. Aerating is done with a core aerator machine which has hollow tines that pull of small plugs of soil. This allows increased movement of water, nutrients, and oxygen into the soil, which promotes new growth for spring.
Seeding or reseeding is one of the key components of fall lawn care. By doing this after summer’s heat subsides and before the winter freeze, homeowners can repair seasonal wear while giving their lawn an eight to nine months jumpstart on root growth.
Fertilizing your lawn in the fall will help feed the grass for a hearty spring growth.
