Now that it’s September, it’s time to start thinking about your fall lawn maintenance plan! The key to a green, healthy lawn doesn’t end after the summer season. To survive the harsh New England winters, your lawn needs a little bit of TLC!
Green Leaves Landscaping can help you with all of the lawn landscaping projects you need to take care of before the first snow, like leaf cleanup and fertilization. Here are the top care tips to guarantee your lawn will flourish next spring.
As life get’s busy, cleaning up leaves and branches from the fall season can get put on the back burner. While it’s not quite the leaf-peeping season yet, there’s nothing wrong with planning ahead. Green Leaves Landscaping is here to help you make sure your lawn is ready for whatever the winter season plans to throw at it, which includes cleaning up piles of leaves for you. Leaving debris on your lawn throughout the winter can damage your lawn once the ice and snow begin to melt. It can lead to dead spots and poor grass growth.
Fertilization & Aeration
Most people have heard about fertilization, obviously. It’s an important part of keeping your lawn green, thick, and free of disease. But have you ever considered aerating your lawn? Aeration is the process of perforating your lawn with many small holes. This way, water, air, and the necessary nutrients can seep into the soil and penetrate the grass roots directly. Consequently, the roots can grow deeper, strengthening the lawn.
If your lawn is frequently used, it’s likely ready for aeration this fall season. Heavy use can compact the soil, especially after months of play and outdoor activities! So, the beginning of the fall season is perfect for aeration when the weather is cooler. To top it off, fertilizing afterward will promote healthy grass growth in the spring.
