Lawn Fertilizer is very important in the fall as this is when much of the root development takes place. If you’re not already on one of our Fertilizer and Weed Control Programs we can do a Fall Fertilizer Application which will help with the root development. Any unused nutrients are stored over winter for a quick green up in the spring.
If you haven’t already had a lawn AERATION, fall is an excellent time to do this. Aeration enables fertilizer applied in the fall to penetrate and allows winter moisture to get deep into the root area.
Be sure to clean the lawn surface in the fall. Any debris or leaves left on the lawn which will be covered in snow will enable lawn diseases to occur (such as snow mold). Your lawn should be cut short in the fall (1 1/2″). This helps to deter snow mold and makes spring cleanup much easier.
