Mow Your Lawn As Needed

As the air gets colder, you're less and less tempted to spend time outdoors. But even if the air isn't quite freezing, you're going to need to mow your lawn. Your grass will continue to grow until the temperature gets cold enough.

Continuously mowing your lawn throughout the fall season keep your grass healthy and ready. Once winter has arrived, this can be a good time to get your mower maintained and prepped for when the ground thaws once again.

Rake Those Leaves

While fallen leaves may look pretty, these can cause your lawn to suffer from a lack of nutrients. It may even promote fungal growth if you're not careful. This is why it's important to rake those leaves as soon as they fall and as soon as the trees are barren.

You can mulch your leaves as a type of fertilizer for your lawn or simply dispose of them as you wish.

Think About Aeration

Aeration & overseeding may be a service you need if your lawn is heavily compacted or thinning. Aerating and overseeding in the fall provide a solid base for your blades of grass to grow healthy and strong when spring arrives.

Fertilize It

The ideal time to fertilize your grass is in the fall. These nutrients you give your lawn will seep into the soil and last throughout winter. Once winter is over, the grass will grow stronger and healthier because of the fertilizer already in the lawn's system.

With the right information and services at your disposal, the fall can be a fruitful time for your lawn. Our team here at Razor Sharp Lawn Care can give you the services and level of care that you need to ensure that your lawn is healthy and strong come springtime. Contact our team today to learn more!
