Feeding Your Lawn in the Fall

Feeding Your Lawn in the Fall

Killing the weeds now means that your lawn will come back strong once fall and winter end and give way to spring once again.

Believe it or not, you can continue to feed your lawn even when the warmth of summer goes away. Fertilizer is the secret weapon that many homeowners use to ensure that their lawns remain beautiful all year long. It’s not too late to get in on the fun, either. 

How to Find Fertilizer 

Before you can do anything else, you’re going to need to find the right fertilizer. Find one that’s easy to apply, but even if you can’t, rest assured that there are experienced professionals standing by and awaiting your call for help. After all, you want the food to actually do something useful for your lawn – and that should come in the form of strengthening the roots and improving the grass’s ability to absorb nutrients, too. Weeds like dandelions and clover are also less resilient in the fall. Killing the weeds now means that your lawn will come back strong once fall and winter end and give way to spring once again. 

Refresh Your Lawn 

The heat from the summer is starting to wind down, which contributes to your grass drying out. It can also make your sod lose moisture, which can ruin it as well. Droughts come and go, but that can cause grass to wither as well. Finally, think about how often people walk all over your lawn. By adding some fertilizer, you can help your lawn perk back up and remain green deep into the winter. If you keep waiting, then these treatments won’t be as effective. Trust us, you don’t want that to happen to you. 

Boost Their Nutrient Level

At some point, all lawns will get hungry, just like you do. Regular feedings won’t be as often as people and even pets need to eat, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need to replace the nutrients that they lose on a daily basis. The growing season is almost over, and that means you need to help give everything some help. It helps the roots reach deeper and won’t be affected by the first frost of the upcoming season. 

Prepare for Spring

Once fall and winter arrive, your grass will sleep. This hibernation period is when they are dormant and are barely active enough to keep growing. Why is that so important? For one thing, it means that you won’t have to worry about mowing the lawn during the coldest months of the year. Feeding your lawn now will help it prepare for spring. Once warmth returns, you’ll notice that your yard is thriving sooner than the yards belonging to your neighbors.
