The heat of summer is almost behind us. Now we’re moving onto more refreshing temperatures. Not only do they feel better for you, but they provide a great time to give your lawn some extra TLC. And at Lawn Doctor of The Hamptons, we’re here to help. As fall lawn care specialists in The Hamptons, NY area, we know that by going the extra mile now, you’ll reap dazzling results in spring. Here’s how to get there:
Control broadleaf weeds. These weeds, such as dandelion, are vulnerable in fall because they’re absorbing energy to build food supplies for winter. That means the treatment you apply to their leaves will get circulated right to the root system, knocking them out in the process.
Aerate to improve soil. When your yard is host to summer playtime and parties, soil can get easily compacted. Alleviate this issue – getting more air, water, and nutrients to roots – by aerating. If grass could use a boost in terms of thickness, seed right after you aerate. Just don’t apply herbicide anywhere near where you seed.
Rake and remove leaves. That heavy layer of leaves is not only blocking out sunlight, but keeping moisture trapped, creating excellent conditions for diseases and insects. Prevent these threats by raking your lawn regularly.
Fertilize to improve growth. Your grass is hard at work during autumn. Not only is it recovering from the stress of summer heat, but also getting ready for a harsh New York winter. Give it the fuel it needs to thrive by fertilizing.
Mow and water regularly. Just because it’s fall and getting cooler outside in The Hamptons area doesn’t mean it’s time to cut down on routine lawn care tasks. Continue to mow and water until your grass goes dormant, usually around the first hard frost.
