Being in the beautiful state of Florida means residents don’t quite experience the same Fall felt around a majority of the county. However, depending on where you are in Florida may depend on what kind of lawn care maybe needed. Here are the Top 10 Fall Lawn Care Tips:
Keep mowing your lawn until the grass stops growing. Mowing will keep the lawn healthy.
- Clear the Surface
Once you’ve completed the last mow of the season, remove all debris from the lawn to prevent any rotting.
Dethatch the lawn to help the lawn breathe for the winter. You can use a dethatch rake, or rent a dethatcher.
- Remove Loose Thatch
Rake up and dispose of the loose thatch.
Allow for the lawn to breathe easier resulting in a healthier lawn.
Repair any areas of grass that were damaged over the summer.
Remove weeds from the lawn.
Encourage healthy growth from your lawn by fertilizing.
Believe it or not, your lawn may need more water than ever in the Fall.
- Plant Winter Grass
If you’d like your lawn to retain that great color through the winter, plant winter grass.
