Fall Lawn Care

Come spring, everyone wants a great-looking lawn. But here's something not everyone knows: Now is the best time to develop a thick, green lawn for spring - with fall treatments, including Aeration and Seeding.

Fall fertilization not only helps your lawn recover from summer stress, it also prepares it for colder weather.

During the fall, your lawn is getting ready to go dormant for the winter. Fertilizing during this period is vital to provide an extra boost of nutrients that will be stored and used during dormancy. Lawn Roots actually continue to grow underground throughout the winter and rely on the stored food until spring.

Power seeding in the fall will increase turf density and improve the overall health and appearance of your lawn.

Power seeding in the fall season also helps the lawn recover from the heavy use from the summer and it influences the lawn's look for the following spring. A dense lawn is also the best natural defense against weed and insect damage.

The fall is also a great time to aerate your yard. Lawn aeration combats grass compaction from summer traffic and encourages the intake of nutrients and oxygen from fall fertilizing.

When the leaves start to fall, rake or blow the lawn clean at least once a week. Keeping your lawn leaf-free doesn't only look better; it's also healthier for your lawn to be leaf-free. Leaves block sunlight, which is vital in the fall as the lawn stores food for the dormant winter season.

As always if you have any questions about Fall Lawn Maintenance, Seeding, Fertilizing, Watering or Aerating come visit us at Van Bourgondien Nursery and we will be happy to assist you.
