3 Step Fall Lawn Care
When a lawn isn’t fertilized in the fall, it can have a difficult spring due to excessive shoot growth. This is caused when the lawn goes from being deprived of nitrogen to having an extreme amount. Using fall fertilizer prepares your lawn to be more manageable and encouraging deep and healthy roots that resist drought, pests, and weeds. And fertilizing your fall lawn is easy when you follow our simple steps!
3 Simple Steps
1. Early autumn to late fall is the perfect time to fertilize, but always follow recommendations not only for your area but for the type of grass you have.
2. Mow your grass at the recommended height before fertilizing, And use a mulching blade on your mower. Clippings are a valuable source of nutrients and you can use less nitrogen fertilizer if you recycle clippings to the lawn which saves money.
3. Be sure the grass blades are dry before applying fertilizer. Applying it to dry grass enables the fertilizer to slide down to the soil rather than sticking to the blades of grass.
