Fall Lawn Care Tips

Posted 10/10/2013

The beautiful fall colors have arrived!  

Did you know that you don't need to rake your leaves before your fall fertilizer is applied. Just mulch them with your lawn mower. You'll want to reduce your leaf clutter to dime-size pieces - you'll know you're done when about half an inch of grass can be seen through the mulched leaf layer.

Those beautiful colors are also our sign that it is time to start getting ourselves and our lawns ready for the snow season.  Now is a good time to start cutting your grass shorter, to prepare for the winter months ahead. Remember, never cut off more than 1/3 of the blade at a time. Cut less, more frequently for the best results!
