Fall Lawn Care
Fall is just around the corner and it is time to begin preparing for the coming seasons.
We want your lawn to be in top form this coming year. Here are some great tips to add to your fall lawn care guide this fall. Be prepared to have the best looking yard in the neighborhood this upcoming season.
Take Care of the Leaves
Although the changing colors of the leaves are beautiful, it is important to start thinking about the way you will take care of your lawn when those beautiful leaves start to fall. It is very important to take care of leaves as soon as is possible. There are a few excellent options you can take when it comes to taking care of fallen leaves:
First, there is the option of bagging them. Many people use this option every year, because it allows for a clean way of getting the leaves off of the lawn. Doing this can be a bit time intensive, not to mention it can be a little inconvenient at times.
Second, mow the leaves. You can either mow up leaves with the grass or you can use the leaves for mulch.
Last, but not least, use the leaves as a covering for other parts of your garden or lawn. Spreading fallen leaves on garden beds will insulate and fertilize during the winter months.
Though the fall leaves may be the most troublesome part of the coming fall, there are a few other things you will need to accomplish to adequately prepare your lawn for next year.
Fertilizing is something you will want to add to your fall lawn care schedule. Fertilizing is one of the most important tasks you have to do. As you prepare for the coming cold, make sure to fertilize your lawn for the winter. This will improve growth in the spring months and make spring prep much easier.
Fall is also an excellent opportunity to seed your lawn. The cold months will give you the chance to put down seeds that will sprout in the spring giving you a beautiful lawn!
Many people forget the importance of seeding in the fall. It can save a lot of trouble as winter comes around and eventually turns to spring.
Keep Track of the Fall Weather
Although fall will certainly lead to winter, there may be important changes in the climate before winter comes. This means that it is essential for you to pay attention to the changes of weather as they come.
If you have a particularly mild fall, you may be able to get a bit more preparation and gardening done before winter comes. On the other hand, if the coming autumn is particularly cold, it might be a good idea to get started as early as possible.
No matter what, you will want to be prompt with the care that you put into the lawn and the leaves. Being prompt and attentive with your efforts will yield much better results overall. Be on top of things, and rest easy knowing that your yard is going to be ready for winter with this fall lawn care guide.
