The need to care for your lawn does not suddenly disappear when August comes and goes. While we do experience a cool-season here in Kentucky, it takes a little longer to get there than in the midwest. While we know many people get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays at the end of the year, it’s still important to take care of your lawn overall. Once Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas have passed, you will be sorry that you stopped paying attention to your lawn. Ignoring your lawn for long periods of time have detrimental and long-lasting effects on it.
But don’t worry because Turf Pro Outdoor Solutions is prepared to take on the fall care for your lawn and teach you how it’s done. There are a number of different ways that you can care for your lawn even when September and October are around.
This process is a unique one, but it is one of the most effective ways to give your lawn a rejuvenation. Essentially what is done is taking an aeration tool and putting it about 1-3 inches in the ground. This pulls the soil up and allows it to breathe. Once it can breathe, it creates space for air, water, and nutrients to be better absorbed.
Once space has been created by aeration, you can lay more seed down and it will be absorbed in a faster, more efficient way than it would have been before. It’s basically giving your turf the extra nutrients it was missing out on all at once. It doesn’t necessarily need to be done after aeration, but it is a good time to think about it if core aeration is on your schedule.
Don’t Forget to Cut Your Lawn
You may want to give up on cutting your lawn when the fall season hits. It could be because you are busy or it could be because you don’t necessarily believe it needs to be cut in the cooler months. However, that is not the case. By continuing to cut your turf until the last moment that it grows for the season, you will be keeping it healthier for when it blooms again. It helps avoid fungus and lawn disease, and it will create a better lawn in the spring again.
Keep On Fertilizing!
Fertilization is key in every season. It allows the turf to be at it’s healthiest to withstand the issues of winter. When you choose to fertilize your lawn about two to three weeks before the estimated freezing of the ground, it allows it to create a better and healthier root to come back even nicer in the spring and summer.
