How to Care for Your Lawn in the Fall
If you’re looking for some simple (yet effective) ways to take care of your lawn this fall, start by doing these three things.
Do you typically only fertilize your lawn once a year? You should do it in the fall. Fertilizing in the fall allows your lawn to really soak up the nutrients in the fertilizer before the cold weather arrives, so that your turf grows stronger and healthier in the spring. You want to use a fertilizer that is rich in nitrogen, because it helps your lawn look greener and grow faster, two things every homeowner wants in their lawn. Pro-tip: aerate before you fertilize. This allows the fertilizer to sink deeper into the ground and nourish your lawn even more!
Saying goodbye to weeds and pests
If you’ve grown used to weeds and pests taking over, you are not alone! Many homeowners struggle to take care of their lawn because they feel like their efforts are always being undermined by weeds and pests. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Take control today and have a lawn expert address your pest and weed issues. You’ll be thankful come spring time when your lawn is green, lush, and even.
Did your lawn start looking patchy over the summer? One of the best ways to fix this problem is to overseed. Overseeding simply means distribuing seed across your lawn without having to till it or tear it up in any way. Sounds simple enough, right? We don’t recommend DIY-ing overseeding, though, for 2 reasons:
1. there are many different types of grasses to choose from and some of them may not be a good fit for your lawn, and
2. the overseeding process has to be done in a specific way in order for it to be effective.
