What To Do In the Fall For Your Own Lawn?


Use the fall months to clean up your yard and prepare for next year.


If you only fertilize your lawn once a year, fall is the time to do it. In fact, your lawn could even take a light application of fertilizer in early fall and again in late fall.


As temperatures cool, your lawn will start growing faster; you’ll likely need to mow weekly through the end of the season.

Cleaning Up

For a healthy lawn, it’s a good idea to clear up all leaves. If You use your mower to chop up the leaves into fine pieces so they decompose and add to your soil’s structure. It’s easier and also better for the health of your lawn!


Most grasses grow best in cool temperatures, making autumn the ideal time to overseed. Seed your new grass about a month before your first average frost date so it can get established.


Like mentioned earlier, cooler autumn temperatures mean your grass will start growing more again—so it a great time to aerate your lawn to loosen compacted soil.

If you keep up with your lawn care calendar, you’ll be working toward the best lawn you can have. By aerating, mowing, and watering at the right times, you make the the work easier and lawn healthier.
