End of Summer Yard Care

It’s getting to be that time of year again. It’s starting to feel slightly cooler than 482 degrees outside. The grass is growing more slowly. The leaves are starting to change. The holidays are right around the corner. Yikes! Sorry to stress you out.

Here are a few tips to make sure your lawn is in tip-top shape next spring:

  • Aerate the soil – this allows oxygen, water and fertilizer to easily reach the grass’ roots. You can rent one for about $70 per day
  • Rake the leaves – don’t wait until all of the leaves have fallen to start raking. Get a head start once they start falling. It will be easier than doing it all at once and will make sure that the leaves do not build up and suffocate the grass
  • Fill in bald spots – this is the perfect time of year to fill in all those bald spots from where Fido went to the bathroom a few too many times.
  • Weed Control – weeds are looking to absorb energy to make sure they can return in the spring. They will suck up anything, including weed killer. Apply now so they do not return in the spring.

Enjoy these last few weeks of beautiful weather and use the cool temperatures to get out and make sure your lawn looks great for next season!
