Fall Lawn Care Tips

Fall is here, leaves are starting to float off the trees & the nights are certainly getting colder. Your lawn shouldn’t be neglected when preparing for winter, this article from Popular Mechanics has great tips on preparing your lawn for the coming winter months.

– Keep on mowing & watering your grass. Drop the blade to the lowest setting for the last 2 cuttings of the year, allowing sunlight to hit the crown of the grass.

– Aerate your lawn to allow water/fertilizer/nutrients to be better absorbed into the ground. You can rent aerators by the day, check your local tool rental facility.

– Rake the leaves as they fall, don’t wait until they are all down. Waiting for all the leaves to fall will create a blanket that will be difficult to rake up and may kill parts of your lawn due to no access to air/sunlight.

– Fill in the bald spots with lawn repair kits from your local home & garden store.
