Fall is just around the corner! Many homeowners get wrapped up in the excitement of fall and neglect to care for their landscapes. If you want your lawn to thrive in other parts of the year, you want to be sure to give it the attention it deserves. Here are a few tips for preparing your lawn for the upcoming fall season!
People seem to forget that their lawns need air to breathe! You can’t expect your lawn to look its best during the spring and summer months if it does not have access to fresh oxygen. Fall is an excellent time of the year to aerate your soil. In addition to oxygen, you want water and fertilizer to be able to reach the grassroots. If you do not have an aerator, you can rent one from your local home goods store. If you do not feel like doing it yourself, you could also hire a contractor to do the job as well.
Don’t Wait To Rake The Leaves
In a few short weeks, leaves are going to be falling from the trees. It is in your best interest to rake your leaves off your lawn as soon as possible because if they become wet, they will stick together and suffocate the grass underneath. Also, mold and other fungal diseases can grow as well. If you do not feel like using a rake or a leaf blower, you can also opt for a lawnmower that has a collection bag.
Weeds are blemishes to your lawn. Fall is the best time of the year to apply herbicides to any weeds in your lawn. This is because they absorb a lot of moisture during the fall, which will prevent them from coming back in the spring.
