I know what you are thinking! Fall is almost here, meaning less work on your home outside and more time in your chair watching football. Wrong! Read some tips below to get a head start on your lawn for next year

 

AERATE THE SOIL

Aerating allows your lawn to get the oxygen and water it needs to grow. You can hire a landscaper to do this or rent a machine for roughly $60 a day.

 

FERTILIZE FOR FUTURE GROWTH

If you only fertilize your lawn once a year, then do it in the fall. Grass on top of the soil doesn’t grow as fast the roots underneath. Meaning the roots still needs it’s food.

You can do this by getting a spreader and apply evenly.

 

WEED CONTROL

Weeds are hungry thirsty monsters of the agriculture world. Weed killer is the best to use on this because weeds drink up everything. Also by doing this in the fall, the winter will help prevent the regrowth period.

 

KEEP ON MOWING

Continue to mow even through the fall season. Also is suggested to drop the your mower down to the lowest setting for the last two cuts. Allowing the sun to penetrate the crown of the grass.
