Morristown TN Real Estate For Sale ~ A Checklist to Help You Ready Your Lawn for Winter

A Checklist to Help You Ready Your Lawn for Winter
As the weather cools off, autumn lawn care is a combination of clean-up and encouraging new growth. It's also a good time to help your grass recover from being trampled during your backyard games of catch or maybe bocce ball this summer. Pave the way for lush, healthy grass next spring with these timely chores.
Fall Lawn Care Checklist
Turf grass won't tolerate thick layers of leaves well. If you don't have a lot of leaves, skip raking and mow over them to chop them into smaller pieces that will add nutrients to the soil.
Seed or lay sod
Cool temperatures combined with late fall rain make for ideal conditions in most regions for establishing new lawns or making repairs.
Aerate your lawn
Plan to aerate high traffic areas annually to loosen compacted soil; otherwise every 2-3 years will do.
Keep up with weeds
Dandelions, clover, and other common lawn weeds will start growing quicker as the temperatures cool off in fall.
Raise your mower blade
Keeping your lawn taller will encourage more root growth, which helps your grass survive the winter better.

Norma, great post and very timely.   I am lucky to live in a patio home now and the HOA is responsible for the lawn.
