With fall around the corner, you may want to consider thinking about how to provide lawn care. Typically, grass will go dormant for the winter, so fall is the perfect time for lawn care to grow beautifully in the spring. Additionally, fall’s cool and moist weather helps grassroots develop better than the summer does. So you want to make sure to take advantage of this growing period for your lawn. Therefore, here are four beneficial lawn care tips to follow for the fall that’ll help your lawn healthy next year.
Make Sure To Keep Mowing
As mentioned earlier, grass doesn’t stop growing through the winter, so you want to continue mowing your lawn in preparation for fall. It’s important to continue cutting your grass at its standard height until it stops growing. However, when you decide to stop mowing for the season, you’ll have to winterize your mower. This is done by changing the spark plugs and oil, cleaning the air filter, and inspecting the mower for damage. Doing this will help you be able to provide lawn care for the fall.
Water Your Lawn
Typically, it rains a lot in the fall, which results in less evaporation that will provide your lawn with plenty of natural moisture for the grass to sustain itself. Make sure you monitor how much water your lawn is receiving from the rain because it’ll help judge how much water you’ll manually have to give your yard.
Rake The Leaves
Soon you’ll have to deal with leaves taking over your lawn, which will not only block the sunlight but also prevent your plants from making food. You see, when there is soggy moisture in the leaves, it can lead to fungi. So, you want to make sure you’re keeping up with the raking to help remove any build-up. Doing this will not only provide excellent lawn care but also open up a passageway for sunlight and your plants. Remember that you want to use a traditional rake because a leaf blower or vacuum won’t remove the build-up entirely.
If you’re wanting your lawn to stand out most than other lawns in the fall, you’ll want to invest in nitrogen-rich fertilizer. This type of fertilizer will give your lawn the nutrients it needs and get it through cold winters. The key to providing exemplary lawn care is by fertilizing your lawn in the fall.
