Your lawn is transitioning from summer to fall and working hard as it does. Give it the boost it needs with the right steps. Not sure where to start? Lawn Doctor of Zephyrhills-Land O Lakes can help. As fall lawn care experts in the Wesley Chapel, Land O’Lakes, New Port Richey, Dade City, and Spring Hill, FL areas, we recommend the following:
Water wisely. The days might be getting shorter and a little cooler. But that doesn’t mean you can stop watering your lawn. It might not need the same amount as in summer, however, grass still typically requires at least an inch a week. So if rainfall isn’t cutting it, make sure you turn on your irrigation system or pull out the sprinklers.
Be careful with mowing. You might want to cut your lawn shorter and less frequently. However, this leads to stress and sets the stage for lawn diseases and other issues, such as browning. Instead, mow more frequently, never removing more than 1/3 of the height at a time.
Apply a pre-emergent weed control. If your lawn has a problem with weeds, fall is a good time in the Wesley Chapel area to deliver a pre-emergent lawn care application. This will significantly reduce the numbers you see in your yard in the weeks and months ahead as it works below the surface, suppressing the development process.
Look for grubs and other lawn pests. When you have a grub infestation, damage is noticeable since these tiny white pests eat away at grass roots. If you’re seeing signs, then make sure you take action and apply a grub control treatment. This will not only suppress the current population, but ensure they don’t return again in spring.
