Fall Lawn Care Tips

Winters coming! You know it, I know it, we all know it. The mornings are starting to get colder, frost can be seen starting to accumulate in the morning. Leaves are beginning to fall and jack frost will be making an appearance in the coming weeks. At Lola’s Landscaping, lawns are part of our passion. Make sure you take these steps to give your lawn the best opportunity to flourish in the Spring.

 
Clear Debris:

 
Wind and rain will cause havoc on your property. They will knock down leaves, tree limbs, branches and more. If this material is left on your lawn to rot over the winter, come spring instead of a nice green lawn, you could have brown spots. Clearing debris gives your lawn a fresh slate to grow again.

 
Aerate Your Lawn:

 
This can be done by yourself or you can hire a professional landscaper to do it. Aerating your lawn improves drainage and will get your lawn ready for the next step.

 
Top Dress Your Lawn:

 
In areas where grass is sparse, prepare for speeding by spreading a a half inch layer of aged compost. Next spread fertilizer using a rotary spreader.
Lastly, you’ll want to consider overseeing your lawn in the Fall to prepare for Winter and Spring. Other steps to make sure you do is to keep on mowing your lawn and clear out all weeds before Winter.

 
By following these steps, you’ll be on your way to having the best-looking lawn in the Spring Time. If you’d like the professionals at Lola’s Landscape to handle this for you, use our contact form to get in touch with us!
