It takes a lot of time and effort to keep a lawn looking good, but it’s worth it. After all, properties with well-manicured lawns enhance the neighborhood and say a lot about who resides in the home.

Here are some other reasons why proper lawn maintenance is so essential:

  • Boosts curb appeal.
  • Helps control pests and weeds.
  • Can help your lawn fight off diseases.

Fall Lawn Care Secrets

Fall Lawn Care Secrets

Take advantage of cool fall weather to fertilize, control weeds, and improve the health and appearance of your yard. A little work now will pave the way for a lush, green carpet when temperatures warm up again in spring.

If a summer drought persists into autumn, considered watering your turf deeply a couple of times before freezing weather sets in. A couple of deep soaks, moistening the soil several inches, before the soil freezes helps the lawn transition to winter. Frequently the fall weather pattern will change and nature will provide the moisture for you. If you have to water, do so in the morning, when the winds are lighter, limiting evaporation.

If you are interested in a sprinkler system, we are a licensed lawn sprinkler company dedicated to creating the most efficient irrigation system for a healthy lawn. If you have an existing irrigation system, now is a great time for a service call to prepare for winter weather. 

Fall is the best time to fertilize if you’ve overseeded your lawn with a cool season grass like ryegrass. It helps your lawn green up earlier and look better in spring.

Avoid fertilizing dormant warm-season grasses.

Creating a healthy, lush lawn is the best way to choke out those weeds. Focus on adding fertilizer to provide essential nutrients when needed. Smaller weeds usually will get shaded out when your lawn is in top shape. For larger weeds, call us for expert pre emergent lawn treatment.

Aeration improves drainage, reduces thatch, and loosens soil. Core aerators are the preferred type of aerators. They remove plugs of soil, or cores, breaking up thatch and improving soil structure. The cores are left on top of the turf and slowly break up depending on rain, mowing, and traffic on the turf. Aerate cool-season grasses in early fall and warm-season grasses in spring. First Response Lawn Care provides aeration services.

Early fall is an ideal time to reseed dead or thin patches in cool-season lawns. If you seed in autumn, you’ll have fewer weeds to deal with next year. And the seedlings will become established before stressful hot weather conditions arrive. A mulch product embedded with seed and fertilizer is a convenient way to fill the gaps. Be sure to prepare the soil bed with a rake before seeding and encourage quick germination by watering new seed regularly for a couple of weeks after application.

 When I think of lawns, I think of bare feet, slip-n-slides and four leaf clovers.  I think of lawn chairs, cold lemonade, small children and puppies. I think about hammocks gently rocking in the wind and the click-click of a sprinkler. The scent of freshly cut grass is intoxicating and is the essence of summer.

This year’s erratic weather combining the rainstorms and heat waves with tropical-like humidity, has been brutal on lawns [as well as shrubs and trees].  The weather this season is causing many lawns to look like a teenager with acne–breaking out with random brown patches [which are actually a fungal growth].  Some lawns appear zombie-like, suffering from slime mold.  Slime mold can also be found in landscape beds [where it looks like a yellow blob of dog vomit].  Dollar spot sounds like a good deal until you realize it is actually a fungal disease that makes your lawn look like a green shirt covered in bleach stains.  Red thread sounds pretty until your lawn looks like a Christmas ornament.

However, all is not lost.  There is time to repair the damage – and still enjoy your lawn.  In fact, August is a great time to address the problems that are now evident in lawns, trees and shrubs.  

Many times, lawn repair is all that is necessary to remedy any of the lawn issues. When disease has run rampant, however, re-seeding a lawn is likely the best remedy.  The best time for re-seeding is generally August through October.  

Another secret weapon to achieving a healthy lawn is aerification. Aeration is a method of loosening up compacted soil by removing plugs of soil, allowing water penetration and the exchange of air in the soil with fresh air and water.  It also helps break up thatch and improves the uptake and utilization of fertilizer applications.

Keep your lawn happy and enjoy the memories you make this summer. If you need lawn care help, call us at 214-701-7622.
