Now is the Time for: Fall Lawn Improvements 

  • Call to get on the schedule now!
  • Fall is the best time because warm soil temperatures yield quick grass germination, crabgrass and other weeds are nearing the end of their lifecycle and won’t compete with new grass, and there is more reliable moisture available.
  • Core Aeration – Improves the flow of air, water, and nutrients through the soil.
  • Overseeding – Fills in bare spots and improves density of the turf without disturbing the existing lawn.  Introduces new grass species to an existing lawn.
  • Compost Topdressing – Increases organic matter, providing nutrients and beneficial microbes.  Improves soil structure, water infiltration, and uneven spots in the lawn.  Reduces thatch along with watering and winter damage.
  • Lime Application – Keeping the right pH will allow soil to uptake maximum nutrients.

Now is the Time for: Preparing the Lawn for the Winter  

  • Preparing your lawn correctly late in the season will ensure a lush, green lawn in the Spring!
  • The lawn should be cut short just before the Winter.  The optimal length is 2-1/2”.  This will help to prevent disease.
  • Rake up any remaining leaf litter and other debris.
  • Relax, and think about Spring!
