Fall foliage can look stunning but once the leaves have fallen and covered most of your turf, it’s time to get rid of them. Dead leaves on the ground not only make your property look unkempt, but they can wreak havoc on your grass. These leaves prevent nutrients and air from reaching the grass roots while also accumulating moisture that attracts grass diseases as well as insects.
Some lawn owners think that fertilizing the grass right as it’s starting to go dormant for the winter is of no use. But remember, while the grass won’t be growing much, the roots will be still developing and thus, need the nutrition. Fall fertilizing will help create a robust and deep root system that will result in a lush lawn year round.
Aeration and Seeding
Things like mowing the lawn and walking on it often leads to soil compaction, making it difficult for oxygen and water to get to the roots. By aerating the turf, the fall commercial landscape professionals remove plugs of soil and create clear pathways to roots.
Overseeding is done after aeration, and it involves adding grass seeds to the existing lawn without turning the soil. This helps the turf grow back thicker, greener, and stronger, and also introduces enhanced varieties of grass to the landscape.
Winterize Your Irrigation System
As the weather starts to turn cold, you want to protect the irrigation and sprinkler system so that you don’t have to worry about making costly repairs later on. Contact the professionals to winterize the system and prevent frozen and burst system during the height of the winter. In fact, make it an annual habit to winterize the sprinkler system.
