Want a more beautiful outdoor space you can enjoy? You need to give your turf the right care and attention now. When you do, grass will grow in greener and thicker and your yard will be less vulnerable to issues with weeds and diseases. To help you make the right moves in fall lawn care this season, Lawn Doctor of North County Coastal offers these tips for homeowners all over Oceanside, Carlsbad, and Encinitas, CA:
Fertilize. Getting your lawn ready for winter means it needs plenty of fuel. Make sure you deliver it with a fall fertilization application. This will help to promote better root growth, which will sustain your grass so it greens up faster in spring.
Seed. Are there bare spots or thin areas in your yard from summer use or heat? These can be vulnerable to attacks from weeds and diseases. The good news is that there is an easy fix and it’s by seeding your lawn. Turf density will get a boost, as will natural defenses.
Clean up. Rake up any debris or fallen leaves in your yard. These will prevent sunlight from getting to your grass and also trap in water, which can cause an issue with fungus. Instead, aim to keep your yard clean and clear by raking it. This will also help to remove a heavy layer of surface thatch.
Treat weeds. Weeds aren’t on your mind during winter, but when you apply a pre-emergent in fall, you’ll stop their development process and limit the amount that can get established in your yard in the seasons ahead. In the future, it will also cut down on competition for space, nutrients, and other resources.
Mow and water. Depending on your turf type, growth might be slowing down during this season. But continue to mow to the right height, keeping grass healthy and strong before it goes dormant. Likewise, don’t let your grass dry out. If there isn’t sufficient rainfall in the Oceanside area, put watering on your lawn care list.
