If you’re wondering why lawn care is so important this time of year, keep reading to discover three amazing benefits of professional fall lawn care.
Aeration is the process of perforating the ground with tiny holes that can allow nutrients, air, and moisture to reach the soil. It also decreases soil compaction and reduces any thatch build-up. All of this works together to help the lawn recover faster from the stress of those hot summer days. Aeration is an important step in keeping the lawn healthy before winter.
Seeding is another essential part of getting your lawn ready for the winter. Try adding new varieties of seeds, as they may be able to resist drought and disease better than what’s currently growing in your yard. The best time to seed is around mid-November. This allows the seeds to germinate and get established before winter begins.
3. Weed Killer
Seeding and aeration improve the health of your lawn while adding weed killers or herbicides protects it from invasive weeds and lawn disease. Applying weed killer in the fall provides effective long-term weed control from any annual winter weeds that may pop up in your Fishers lawn.
