For most of us, fall means busier back to school schedules and increased responsibility. Whether you’re tied up with band, sports, clubs, or work, don’t forget about your lawn. The following fall lawn care tips will set you up for a successful season.
Aerate Your Soil. It’s sometimes more difficult for water and oxygen to penetrate your lawn during the summer months. Aeration increases moisture retention and reduces runoff.
Water. Hot Texas summers can strain, stress, and dry your lawn out. Adequate and regular fall watering will help your lawn recover from hot summer months. Take caution and avoid overwatering, which can drown the root and damage the grass.
Mowing. As the temperature begins to fall, drop the height of your mower blade. Grass grows slower in the fall, so cut back on the frequency of mowing.
Fertilize. The fall is an optimal time to fertilize your lawn. This will give it added strength through the cold winter months. Find out the kind of grass you have to ensure the best possible results.
Weed Control. Fight back against weeds or lawn stressors during fall. Weeds will suck up the energy and nutrients your lawn needs to grow.
