Clean Up the Lawn
Complete regular raking once the leaves begin to fall so your lawn can receive the air and sunlight it needs to be healthy. Also, remove leaves and debris as part of your landscape maintenance to avoid accidentally creating a home for creatures to move into during wintertime. Despite the cooler temperatures slowing the growth rate of your grass, you should continue mowing and watering during the fall.
Prepare for Thanksgiving and Beyond
Crisp fall weather is ideal for fertilizing your grass. Our landscaping experts will take the time to understand the needs of your turf to ensure that we apply the proper fertilizers exactly when they are needed. Even if you don’t have mulch in your garden beds, lay some down before winter comes. This protection layer insulates plant roots against the cold and eliminates soil erosion from heavy fall rain.
Right before the official cold weather, water and cut your lawn one good time. Short turf in the winter is less prone to disease. As long as you already have a healthy lawn and no problems with thatch, feel free to leave the grass clippings when you mow. Although mulching is good, it’s not necessary. The clippings will break down briefly and will provide nitrogen to your lawn. This means you may expect a healthier lawn in the spring.
Get into the Thanksgiving Spirit
Just because the weather is becoming cold doesn’t signify you must give up on lively blossoms just yet. Fill your lawn with lovely golden, orange, and bronze autumn hues. If necessary, paint your front door and patio bench with fall colors in mind. The autumnal hues will look beautiful during the rest of the year.
