5 Tips for Fall Lawn Care Maintenance

#1 Remove Leaves

As the trees begin to lose their leaves and scatter them all over your lawn, fungus, debris, and other hazardous material can come along with them. Make sure to keep leaves raked and bagged as they fall and maintain this practice until all the leaves have left the tree’s branches. Your grass needs to breathe.

#2 Fertilize

Fall is the perfect time to fertilize your grass and its roots. Giving the grass essential nutrients and minerals before it goes dormant and combats the cold weather will help maintain healthy growth and root base come springtime.

#3 Aerate Your Yard

Over time, the soil under your lawn can become impacted and hard to allow the proper flow of water, minerals, and roots. Aeration creates little holes in the soil under your grass to help promote healthy airflow, color, growth, and ward off fungus and diseases.

#4 Maintain Proper Blade Length

You should continue cutting your grass as the fall months approach but remember to not cut the blades too short. As the growing period ends, cutting the grass will slow down. Make sure not to cut the blade length too short before the last cut of the fall. Yoru grass needs protection from the cold air during winter.

#5 Water Properly

Watering your lawn in fall is still very important. As the hot air decreases you must still maintain a proper watering schedule. Overwatering can cause damage to the frass and create fungus and underwatering can leave the grass too dehydrated and dry for the winter months.
