The warm days of summer will soon slip away and homeowners will begin noticing their lawns will be taking on a deeper green. After the first frost, some lawns will quickly begin to turn straw brown which is normal. This is a sign that your lawn is beginning to go dormant for the much colder weather that will soon arrive. Don’t take this a sign to stop taking care of your lawn.
Here are some important lawn care tips for a healthier lawn next spring:
Continue mowing. As temperatures drop, you might want to consider lowering your mower’s cutting height. Some studies show that shorter grass blades are less susceptible to mildew diseases.
- Don’t let tree leaves accumulate on the lawn. Leaves will eventually become a thick wet layer that can cause severe damage to your lawn.
- If you haven’t signed up for a regular lawn fertilization program, now is the best time to start one. Fall lawn fertilization’s are the best.
- There is still time to order an aeration treatment. This treatment will have long lasting benefits. Call our office as soon as possible to schedule your treatment.
