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.
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.
Cool temperatures combined with late fall rain make for ideal conditions in most regions for establishing new lawns or making repairs.
Plan to aerate high traffic areas annually to loosen compacted soil; otherwise every 2-3 years will do.
Dandelions, clover, and other common lawn weeds will start growing quicker as the temperatures cool off in fall.
Keeping your lawn taller will encourage more root growth, which helps your grass survive the winter better.
