The weather still feels super warm here on the East Coast, but it’s time to start coming up with a plan for your lawn maintenance for the upcoming fall. Everyone knows that spring and summer are two of the busiest seasons for lawn maintenance, but many homeowners don’t realize that there is still plenty to do in the fall! Here are a few essential lawn maintenance tasks that will need to be completed this fall.
It’s important to keep the leaves raked as they fall, even though no one likes to do it. Raking the leaves from your yard is a great workout! If you don’t want to rake or aren’t able to, feel free to call the professionals at Atlantic Maintenance Group! When the leaves create a thick layer over your grass, they keep it from getting the water it needs to survive. Raking the leaves before they build up helps your grass stay alive!
Don’t Stop Mowing
We get it: you’ve been mowing the grass all summer long, and you’re looking forward to the fall when temperatures are lower, and it doesn’t need to be cut as often. Make no mistake, just because it’s cooler doesn’t mean you’re off the hook for cutting the grass. As long as it’s still growing, you’ll need to keep on mowing. Alternatively, you can call the pros at Atlantic Maintenance Group, and we will get that taken care of for you!
Aeration is possibly one of the most important lawn maintenance tasks because it churns the soil to integrate oxygen and other essential nutrients. When preparing to aerate your lawn, be careful with the timing. You should treat the ground for weeds first, as the aeration process can actually spread them. Don’t aerate ground that is too wet or too dry. Putting down grass seed right after aeration will help the seeds take root much easier because the aerated soil is much softer.
