Why Fall Lawn Care Should Be On Your Property Maintenance Check-List

iStock_000000795032_MediumFall weather is known for it’s beautiful, changing leaves.  However, homeowners also know the downside to fall leaves – raking!  No matter what the size of your property, raking can be a time consuming maintenance task.  We offer property maintenance services for fall cleanups that help keep your lawn in good condition and help provide you with time to do things that are more important.

Here are a few things that you should be adding to your fall property maintenance check-list this year.

Fall Lawn Care:

  • Fertilize – You should fertilize cool-season grasses in September, October or November.  This will help make sure that they have the nutrients needed to stay hardy during the winter months.
  • Remove Leaves – Removing leaves from your yard is an important part of property maintenance and lawn care.  Fall leaves keep sunlight and air from reaching the grass.  This can encourage diseases and keep your lawn from being healthy.
  • Control Weeds – You should apply a pre-emergent weed killer so that you can keep weeds under control during the winter months.
  • Add Mulch – Fall is one of the best times to add mulch to your yard.  It helps retain heat and moisture as the weather starts to cool.
