Fall is the most important time of the year for strengthening lawns and preparing them for the harsh temperatures of winter. It is also best time of the year for fertilization, cultivation, establishing a new lawn, and renovation of poor quality yards.
The cool weather signals the ideal time to plant your trees and shrubs. Plan ahead for next year by planting your spring flowering bulbs now, such as tulips and daffodils in October.
As the leaves begin to fall, make sure to keep them raked or picked up, to avoid forming a wet blanket that will smother your yard and inviting disease.
As long as your yard is still growing, continue mowing. Make sure to do a little mower maintenance before you store it away for the winter. If your yard is still growing, be sure to continue to water.
Keep up with your lawn care throughout the fall, and you’ll have an exceptional looking yard come spring!
