When summer comes to an end and winter approaches many fall into the mindset that they no longer need to maintain their lawns. The heat is over and rainy days are approaching. Before fall end, however, there are a few important steps you need to take.
To ensure your grass is healthy and green for next spring there are a few basic needs your lawn will require. Good food, air and water are necessary for a lawn to thrive.
A healthy lawn needs food to survive. In this case fertilizer. Fertilizer will give your lawn the endurance it needs to make it through the cold winter. It will also help to strengthen roots.
Have you ever heard of aerating your lawn? It is a simple process of making holes in your lawn to allows two things to happen. Once the holes are made the roots of the grass can now breathe. The second benefit is that fertilizer can now reach the roots and provide nutrients.
This is the easy part. Ensure your lawn has enough water and turn off any automatic sprinkler systems once the rainy season hits.
