End of Summer Yard Maintenance
Have you started thinking about packing your patio furniture and doing some end-of-summer yard maintenance? With fall on the horizon, this is the best time to rejuvenate your yard and have it prepared for the season to follow.
As lawn care professionals, we wanted to give you some insights on how you can prepare your yard for the colder months ahead:
Mowing Your Lawn
It is important to keep mowing your lawn towards the end of the summer, even if the grass is no longer growing at a rapid pace. With temperatures dropping, do not forget to adjust your watering schedule.
Prepare with Care
Before fall begins, trim branches and bushes that look unhealthy. It helps them grow back stronger next year and you would have less leaves to take care of as the weather turns colder.
Add a Good Layer of Mulch
Adding a fresh layer of mulch makes your yard look neat and it helps suppress the growth of weeds. Mulching also keeps water and nutrients close to plant roots providing the roots with the essentials they need to thrive throughout fall.
Aeration is Important
The summer sun makes the soil hard and compact making it difficult for grass roots to absorb water, air and other nutrients. With aeration loosening the soil, the roots have access to all the nutrients they need to survive and thrive. The best time to have your lawn aerated is either late summer or early fall.
