Lawn Care In The Fall, What Steps Do You Need To Take:
Fall is the best and most important time to fertilize your lawn :
• Morning dew delivers moisture to help turf absorb the fertilizer.
• The grass has a chance to build stamina before a chilly winter.
• Supporting root growth in fall leads to a healthier, greener lawn in spring.
WHEN IN FALL SHOULD YOU APPLY FERTILIZER TO YOUR LAWN?
Apply fall lawn fertilizer In September / October. Fertilizer you want to apply should be an organic based slow release nitrogen.
Fall Fertilizer will give your lawn nutrients to battle the stress come winter. It will give you a head start come Spring as well.
Before applying fertilizer you need to take a soil test/ pH test. Understanding the soil will allow to treat accordingly.
Organic lawn care is treating the soil not a certain problem. Chemical application aim to treat a problem, a quick fix. This is a temporary fix that will never truly be solved. Resulting in multiple applications year after year.
WHEN TO FERTILIZE LAWN AFTER MOWING?
