Should I Fertilize and Control Weeds in the Fall? Yes!
- October 6, 2017
With fall here and winter quickly approaching, we may not be focused on the health of our lawn anymore. Did you know that fall is actually the ideal time to prepare your lawn for next spring? You may be thinking, why am I worrying about next spring now? Fertilizing and controlling weeds in the fall is vital to the future of your healthy lawn.
We enjoy our lawns all summer long; the heat and traffic causes stress to the lawn. Now is the time to help the lawn recover from all of that stress by using a fertilizer specifically blended for the fall growing conditions. The amount of mowing you have to do September through October greatly decreases and who can complain about that? Don’t let that fool you. The lawn still needs just as much attention as it did all season long. Why let weeds survive for another year? Let’s get a jump start on controlling them now.
The fertilizers that we use in the fall help with root development, winter hardiness and give the lawn the energy it needs to turn green, healthy and beautiful in the spring. Fall provides a perfect setting for the lawn to regain strength from all those stresses that we talked about during the summer with the decreased amount of traffic and dropping temperatures. Don’t let your lawn suffer through another fall without help. Act now and start building a healthy lawn for next year. Call us at 719-528-5296 today and learn about our fall specials.
