As the temperatures drop and we get some rain, it is time to shift your lawn care routine to ensure it thrives during the cooler months. Fall is the perfect time to rejuvenate your green space by starting or continuing an organic lawn care program.
Besides applying fertilizer, here are a few other ideas to keep your lawn in good shape.
Raking and Cleanup: Start by removing fallen leaves and debris from your lawn. This allows your grass to breathe and absorb nutrients effectively.
Mowing: Adjust your lawnmower to a higher setting to leave your grass longer. Taller grass helps retain moisture, which is crucial as the weather gets cooler. (This is a good idea all year.)
Fertilization: Apply an organic, slow-release fertilizer to provide essential nutrients to your lawn. This encourages strong root development and prepares your grass for winter.
Weed Control: Take this opportunity to tackle any persistent weeds. Use organic weed control methods or spot treat with eco-friendly herbicides.
Watering: While your lawn may receive more natural moisture in the fall, continue to water as needed.
Mulching: Consider mulching your leaves instead of bagging them. Mulched leaves can provide extra nutrients as they break down. Put these leaves in your flower beds.
Monitor Pest Activity: Keep an eye out for pests like grubs and take appropriate measures if you notice an infestation.
Enjoy the Outdoors: Lastly, take some time to relax and enjoy your organic lawn. After all, it's the perfect season for outdoor activities and gatherings.
By following these steps, you'll ensure the health and beauty of your organic lawn throughout the fall and set the stage for a lush, vibrant yard when spring arrives. Embrace the changing seasons and let your organic lawn thrive in the cooler, rainier weather.
