Lawn aeration is not the only lawn care step you need to take this fall. Here are 3 additional lawn care techniques to ensure that the grass is greener on your lawn next spring.
It’s important to be on top of leaf removal this fall. If left too long, leaves can suffocate the grass and cause fungal diseases. Smaller, more frequent raking makes the job more manageable and is best for the grass.
After aerating your lawn, fertilize it. Applying an even, consistent layer of winterizing fertilizer prepares the grass for next year while deterring dandelion growth in early spring. Attacking springtime weeds is a process that starts now.
Repair bald spots
The weather is just right in early fall to repair bald spots in your grass. Begin by raking the area to loosen the soil, and plant a lawn repair mixture. This mixture contains the perfect combination of grass seed, fertilizer, and organic mulch. Keep the area moist for 2 weeks, or until you see blades of grass growing.
