Fall is a beautiful time of the year. Summer has wound down, and the leaves on the trees are changing color as the temperatures cool. However, don’t let all this magical color distract you from the tasks at hand. Once fall is here, winter isn’t typically behind. So, arrange your commercial property for spring with these fall maintenance tasks.
Rejuvenate Your Commercial Landscape with Pine Straw
During autumn, pine straws begin to break down in commercial landscape beds. Applying fresh pine straw in these areas in fall will rejuvenate their appearance, maintain weeds at bay, and provide a naturally sustainable addition to your landscape. In addition, pine straw maintains plant roots and beds insulated during the winter months, so they are strong in spring.
Try Out Lawn Aeration
Aerate your lawn to provide the turf a much-needed boost. Aeration is the process of eliminating ½-inch diameter plugs of grass and soil using an aerator. By removing these plugs, aeration provides the turf roots with the room they need to absorb nutrients and water. Therefore, you are essentially removing the constriction of the turf roots’ airflow, water, and nutrients.
Overseed Turfgrass Areas
Another one of the fall maintenance tasks to complete is overseeding turfgrass areas that are naked or worn out. This is usually due to heavy foot traffic. Furthermore, overseeding your commercial lawn once yearly can help prevent disease damage, drought stress, and bare patches.
Plant Spring Bulbs as Part of Your Fall Maintenance Plan
When you think spring, you might think of flowers. Planting bulbs ensure that your commercial property is one of the first to experience the flush of color after winter. Please don’t neglect this process as part of your fall maintenance tasks.
